I think one of my eggplants is just about ready. My FIRST ever eggplant, grown in my garden by moi! I gave Mom my first squash and cucumber, but dang it, I'm eating the first eggplant. How? Eggplant lasagna? Baba Ganoush? Perhaps a lightly breaded something something? CURRIED EGGPLANT? (I don't know, my curry plant is a bit peaked, but maybe it could spare a bit).
The planning of the ceremonial eggplant feast is almost as much fun as the feasting.
