    Thanks for the post Tina. Eggplant is in here at the moment and I've been looking for a new way to fix it. You forgot the wine but not to worry I'll put it in for you. Your usual 5 coming up. RJ

    Eggplant is a mostly misunderstood vegetable. I hated it when I was a kid because my Mom only knew to boil it. But I have come to enjoy is as skillet fried, in casseroles and fixed like this one which is different. It sounds delightful. Gonna print this one out and try it. Thanks Tina.

    I've never cooked with eggplant much, but as you know I have at least one to figure out something to do with it.... this one sounds good. :)

    oh my this sounds good. I have high hopes that my little garden will provide me with 3 different types of eggplant. If they all do ripen I'll need plenty of these recipes on hand. This seems to be right up my alley!

    Sounds like something I'd like to fix. Eggplants here yesterday didn't look too good. I'll give it a week or two!

    This goes on the table tonight. I have a small garden (gave up the big one several years ago) and have eggplants coming out my ears from 6 plants. This is a must try. Flavor combos can't be beat.
