Here I thought we were locked in until next November, long days in the high 90s and muggy and then, thank you very much, the weather broke for a few days. Ahhh... spring! Enjoy it while it lasts, no matter what part of the world you are in. I'm taking advantage of these last few days that are cool enough to run the oven fearlessly, while enjoying some less-than-wintry fare.
I love eggplant. I love it baked, fried, oven-roasted and puréed with garlic to make baba ghannouj (spell it any way you like, I love it!), layered with meat and sauce and baked into a moussaka, it all makes me happy. But I have had more epic eggplant fails than any other kind of kitchen disasters...
