Eggplant two ways

Standard

I followed my advice and went computer free yesterday evening.  It did the trick.  Sometimes I just need to slow down and appreciate how good my life is.  Note, I said good not perfect.  I don’t expect perfect until I get to heaven so for now I am overjoyed with good.  For the cooking segment of the evening I made Eggplant Parmesan.  Eggplant has always seemed like such a cool thing to cook.  I have bought them on several occasions but never really known what to do.  So I have sliced and diced them into stews and casseroles.  They turned out mushy and sometimes slimy but I still boasted that the dish had eggplant.  Never mind that the dish wasn’t very palpable.   Fortunately, this time the eggplant was mouthwatering.  Panko breadcrumbs, parmesan and mozzarella cheese, fire roasted tomatoes what’s not to love?  I purchased two eggplants but only ended up needing one.  The other fulfilled its life long dream of becoming a racecar.  What! You didn’t know that all baby eggplants dream of becoming racecars?  Ok, maybe they don’t but my toddler loved the idea and loved building his racing eggplant.

If you would like the directions for the car or recipe for the eggplant parmesan leave me a comment.  Talk to you soon.
