eggplant “chips”

We grew our very first eggplant! And its a beauty.


Our wee little eggplant wasn’t quite big enough for a fancy recipe, so we settled on making some eggplant “chips” to share. We loosely used this recipe, but made up our own spice mixture. Then we ate them up with a side of tacos! Hope the plant grows another one soon!


I didn’t spend a whole lot of time reading on screens this week, due to my cold. I did read To Kill A Mockingbird, which is one of my very very favorites. So my recommendations for the weekend are to drink lots of water, read a good book, and try a new recipe. Have a good one, my friends.

leftovers: frittata

I am thankful we both fall into the love leftovers category. We both have the odd foods we like better cold, and leftover dinner makes an easy work lunch the next day. We’ve been playing with recipes from this cookbook lately, and even though it specifically says its for two people, it can still be A LOT of food. So we still end up with extra.

This week, we made a frittata with some potatoes, asparagus, and red pepper for dinner. Yum, but I can’t eat half a pan of frittata in one sitting, so…

1. A breakfast frittata-co! Chop and heat up frittata, stick in tortilla, add some avocado, and you have a colorful breakfast taco.frittata1

2. Frittata-quiles! Chop and heat up frittata, crush up some blue corn tortilla chips and heat them up in a pan with some salsa, and stick them both on a plate together.frittata2
