First Monday Favorites - November 2018 - 24

Can you believe it's November, already?

It seems like it was just the other day on the last First Monday Favorites post that I said that  September went by like a hurricane.

Ummm, those were pretty prophetic words, only it was October that had the hurricane.  Hurricane Michael visited my neck of the woods and left a lasting impression.  
Category 5 hurricanes tend to do that.

Not a good one either, Hurricane Michael decimated a couple of communities, left several more in shock and disbelief, including my community, and left destruction everywhere.
I had some loss, but it looks like insurance will cover most of it.

Despite the loss of power, for a few days, I still managed to cook a bit.   I even cooked some Hobo Dinners out on the grill one night.

No power meant that I had to use the grill for cooking a couple of meals.  

I made these Thai Style Crab Cake Stuffed Mushrooms for a potluck, just before the hurricane hit, and then shared them as #FishFridayFoodies post, and they will be repeated again.
They were popular.

I'd also made a cake earlier in the month for the Legion Cake Raffle and decided I'm so going to be making this again and again.  I do love a good Pina Colada and this Pina Colada Cake  in cake form, it's a winner.

I just couldn't make up my mind which one was my favorite, so I flipped a coin and this is my choice for First Monday Favorites for last month.

I mean it, I literally flipped a coin, a quarter in fact.  And the winner was the Thai Style Crab Cake Stuffed Mushrooms.
