Music to my ears. Someone, anyone, reading my blog! Oh, joy!
Unless it's family member. Then, it's, like, "Uh, oh, what did I write? Whose butt did I make look too big?"
Tonight, though, not to worry, all is well. Turns out that the other cooking half of the family took note of a comment posted by Mary and decided to try it out.
Results are in: Score for Mary!
Grilled Eggplant a la Mary had been born. We made our own Italian dressing using this and that, something or another and a French fried bat. That's from my dim memory of a Rocky and Bullwinkle show, Fractured Fairy Tales. Anyway, the eggplant turned out great and, by Jove, we'll have it again.
And to replay Mary's comment:
If you want to try something tasty use italian dressing as a marinade for the eggplant and grill til a bit carmelized. I like the old school Good Seasonings mix-it-yo-own-damn-self dressing. Fabulous. : )
We mixed our own-damn-self dressing with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, basil, and black pepper.
