So da boys are out tonight at my stepdaughter’s Christmas concert, and I am attempting to catch up on work. Somewhere, buried in one of my I-need-to-make-this-soon piles, is a recipe for eggplant. Can’t remember what magazine I tore the page from, nor the method, but it was recent enough that I bought the eggplant over the weekend. Knowing The Husband and Nicholas are going to protest eggplant at the dinner table, I figured it would be a perfect, healthy little bite for me to nibble on tonight whilst catching up on a few things in their absence. But if only I could find where I put the darn clipping … sigh. So barring sharing a new and fabulous (I’m sure it would be!) eggplant recipe, I rummaged around in the fridge and made a Grilled Havarti, Ham and Tomato sandwich, thus fulfilling my ARF/5-A-Day requirement, although not nearly as exciting as the eggplant could have been. Another day. In the meantime, on to what other food bloggers served up for our 100th roundup of ARF/5-A-Day inspiration.
