A sweaty, dirty morning, and I loved it. I weeded parts of the yard and then planted several planters of white flowers, as well as a few more pots of lettuces and herbs. Whew! I truly need my daily shower, ha. Nathan took one look at my dirt-encrusted hands and said, you are NOT making my lunch, then proceeded to prepare for himself a hot dog and a green apple (he’s on his way to cooking, it’s happening, slowly, and I’m so excited…)
For dinner I’m trying a new recipe, from the gorgeous La Cucina Italianamagazine (to which I have a subscription thanks to my fabulous-cook-father-in-law, John), for galette di melanzane, aka eggplant crisps. Basically, eggplant croquettes, served with a quick and spicy tomato sauce. If they’re tasty, I’ll post the recipe. With the galette, we’ll have a big salad with all the lovely greens I have from my pots and my CSA share. I think I’ll keep it pretty simple, since the crisps look to be a bit rich. Perhaps a small amount of cheese and/or egg since we’re not having meat. It turns out that we’re eating salad every single day. And I couldn’t be happier about it!
Now for that shower…
And ohhh, the crispy eggplant, incredible, wow. Wow. Good recipe. Simple too. And absolutely delicious with a salad alongside. Prrr… John appreciated it all mightily, since he didn’t eat one other thing the entire day – crazy, I know, but he’s an eat-at-the-end-of-the-day kind of guy. Luckily, his wife likes to make dinner… (Recipe posted in comments, below.)
