Tomatoes and Eggplant

Always a sucker for a "bargain" today during my lunch break I picked up about 4 lbs of Roma Tomatoes and 3 medium Eggplants that were on sale (due to thier being a bit ripe)

So Tomatoes and Eggplant a natural duo...but I have no immediate use so I am looking for some way I can cook up a big batch of something that will keep for awhile or freeze well.

I am also looking for some ideas outside of the ratatouille/ eggplant parm arena I always do Italian so maybe someting with different flavors.

I have about half a jar of Kalamata olives looking for a use, some fresh parsely, dill, fennell and a dwidling supply of dried herbs. I have plenty of Mint (as perviously mentioned now frozen, dried and growing in a pot) brown rice onions potatos and a sack of purple potatos (with another intended use but whatever)

For meats I have chicken thighs and legs and a meatloaf mix pack although I would prefer a vegetarian dish of something that could be eaten with or without meat.... so as not to exclude.

I've made these before sticking to the recipe, I've also made them by slipping a thin slice of tomato and the basil into them and skipped the topping part.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
