ok dinah, I've got try some of your eggplant recipes. I had an eggplant disaster one time- I told Lance and victor when they were her so you can ask them to tell you the story- it's pretty funny :) But it will try again :)

yuuuuUUUUMMMMmmmmm Set one more plate, I'll be there for supper. (I'll bring the coffee and tea....).

Seriously, this looks to be scrumptious. Funny thing, though, growing up I despised eggplant and went to great lengths to avoid it. I suspect it was the way Mum cooked it. Bland, tasteless, mushy.... but then I was in a situation once where I was absolutely famished, having worked very hard all day in serious cold, and had stopped to take care of the last bit of business for the day when I was offered a plate of eggplant parmeggiano. My first reaction was "uh, well, no, thanks all the same". But the huge aching pit in my tummy resting just above a pair of very hollow legs forced me to accept a small plate. It was delicious. I asked for a second, and have never avoided the stuff since. This dish is certainly one I'd enjoy as well..... fun stuff.
