Us too. Not sure how many will be here for dinner, but I'll put together a lasagna and whoever wants some, can have some! I have a big pot of chicken soup simmering too. I thought I'd take advantage of the cool morning to do some prep.

We are still on holiday and I'm not standing on a scale for a while. I hate it when they creak!

Eggplant Parm

I went to the garden and picked some 'maters and eggplants. The 'maters are the San Marzano style romas and grown from little itty bitty seeds. We had to buy the eggplant...plant? bush? shrub?





This is as far as I have gotten on dinner so far.

Kathleen started the seeds. I think she thought she was late on it, but she did start them in the basement. This is the first of the crop really (other than the Early Girl that she bought).

Nice veggies, Frank! Been picking cherry toms for a few weeks, thankfully they're not ripening all at once. The Better Boys still have a long ways to go.

Curious as to what you decided to do with it. I usually add it to a stir-fry or soup. There are a few recipes on this link that have me curious (the roasted bok choy being one, the two bok choy slaws being the other two):

The bok choy isn't ready, yet. We planted it later this year so as to harvest it in the fall.

Well dinner has changed in our house. The weather heated up so the lasagna is uncooked at the moment. We picked a zucchini, some swiss chard and some lovely yellow beans out of the garden. I can see a scramble dinner coming...lasagna tomorrow.

Last night's plans will be tonight's dinner, since I picked up that calzone rather than rage at Himself as soon as I walked in the house last night.

Ginormous 3-quart standard salad (iceberg and romaine, celery, carrots, cukes, radishes and 'maters), grilled pork tenderloin, steamed broccoli, and decided that the starch will be Grands Biscuits from the tube. Was going to make PPO's peach and berry strudel except that Himself has blown thru the peaches and there's only one left. One more thing for tomorrow's shopping list.
