Eggplanty.

I forgot to write about a delicious eggplant dish Nate made last night. (So I guess I did eat something other than soup/saltines!) I am taking partial credit for the dish because I gave him the recipe. Both the eggplant and the recipe came with our last CSA vegetable delivery.

Basically, preheat your oven to 375 F and oil a heavy metal (rockin'!) baking sheet with olive oil. Then you take an eggplant and cut it into rounds about 1/4-in. thick. Spread both sides of the eggplant thinly with mayonnaise. Grate about 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, and put it in a bowl with some garlic powder and sea salt. Then dredge the eggplant slices in the cheese mixture and put on the baking sheet. Bake for about 20-30 min. until tender and very brown.

These are delicious! As Nate said, the eggplant is just a vehicle for cheese and oil. But oh, what a tasty vehicle it is!

All this talk of food is making me hungry. When, exactly, is your next party?

Hmm, good question! I'll have to work on that. (My birthday is the day after Halloween, though...perhaps a combined celebration?)
