It was a beautiful day in Alabama. Nice enough that we could eat dinner on the patio. That's right, outside. I grilled eggplant for sandwiches, spinach salad with bleu cheese, pecans, and raisins, and you guessed it...strawberry shortcake. Quite tasty. Is your mouth watering yet?
Post post comment: To grill eggplant, mix olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and basil or oregano. Brush mixture on eggplant (cut about 1/4" thick). Eggplant is like a sponge so don't use too much oil. Grill on medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. I like foccacia bread and top with brie (or other soft cheese), tomatoes and spinach. bon appetit.
