  1. I’m thinking we must have the same csa or something :-p Eggplant anyone? Okay, I tried making egg plant parm last night and it DEFINITELY did not turn out like this…hahaha. I think I didn’t pan fry them long enough, and went straight to baking them…it was okay…but nothing to write home about. I should try it again :)
