I don't know why I try to kid myself...I hate eggplant. Why did I put it on my menu this week, or ever really? I'll tell you why - because so much of my tastes have changed over the past few years, that I thought I might like it just a little bit.
As soon as I started to slice the eggplant, I knew this dinner was not happening. I forced myself to go through the motions, and as soon as I threw it in the oven, I proclaimed "We are going out!" Nathan was like, "Huh?!" I threw the whole dish into the garbage. (I know, I know - there are starving children in Africa...)
Thinking about that gorgeous vegetable made me want to hurl. I can't explain it.
The next time you see me attempt anything with eggplant in it - stop me! Sometimes I'm just overtaken by the beauty of it all.
