Trying New Things

For the last few week we have participated in Bountiful Baskets.  It is pretty cool, especially since we live in a desert and don't have lovely farm stands like we visit in PA when we are there.  Each week we sign up and pay for a basket.  Then on Saturday we shlep out the the designated location and pick up the basket.  It is $16.50 for a basket, and this week in the basket we got a bag of potatoes, 2 tomatoes, green beans, eggplant, leaf lettuce, a cantaloupe, 5 plums, 5 peaches, a couple pounds of grapes and bananas.  Which where I live is way more the $16.50. 

Each week there is one item that is "unusual" at least for us.  This week it is the eggplant.  Last week we got kale, and another week it was swiss chard.  I love the opportunity to try something that our family has not tried.  I love looking for the recipes, and trying them out.  So my project this week is the eggplant.

Just try to get your children to eat me....

So I think I found a recipe, lets see how many I can get to eat eggplant.

What did you make? I used to get eggplant sometimes in my fresh deliveries and I almost always made eggplant parmesan, even though my husband thought he didn't like it. Now after all that exposure, he likes it but it's hard to make a whole meal of it. It looks delicious!
