Eggplant caviar :

1.Go to the farmer's market and buy fresh eggplants, onions, bell peppers, garlic and tomatoes.

2.Bake or grill the eggplant.

3.Fry onion, green peppers, garlic in your cast iron skillet. Add the eggplant goo + tomoatos and cook 'til everything is soft.

4. Season with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper and mush it all up into the best of all possible sandwich spreads!

We had brown rice and fried fish the other day and the next we tossed leftover rice with corn, pepper, seaweed, carrots and egg. YUM!

I'm in love with fried rice this week.

We'll probably have chicken and potatoes tonight.

I am such a loser. You guys are all making my dream dinners, and I sit in a house with a kitchen full of fabulous food at this very moment - corn, squash, green beans, heirloom tomatoes, yellow potatoes, plums, peaches, eggplant, cucumber, not to mention an herb garden - and have no idea what to make for dinner. Without a recipe I am just lost.

tonight I am making roasted chicken and vegetables, amaretto mashed sweet potatoes, and a roasted vidalia onion dip with homemade pita chips. I also am making vanilla bean ice cream and snickerdoodle cookies. No, I don't cook like this every night, we are having company.

You all rock! I wish I waas that organized with meals! We were a tad simplier this week lasagna, pot roast with all the fixins, greek kabobs, and this was a good week! Not usually this "motivated" with cooking. I suck...... it is so hard to cook in the heat with three boys hanging off my legs. We usually whip up whatever trying to get something from each food group.

You gals are mighty impressive! If I do 3 or 4 "real" meals in a week I call it a good week! I'm big on making twice as much and eating it two nights. I love to cook but the heat sorta gets me down, and we're having a wave this week.

Last night was black beans & rice; tonight is burritos with grilled zucchini & eggplant; later in the week, if I get my act together, is a curried chicken & rice salad that's out of this world.
