An awesome eggplant dinner

January 2, 2010

I’m telling you that I had no idea about everything that’s involved in making eggplant parm.  Holy gracious!  After Amy soaked the eggplant in salted water and let them dry she dipped them in a milk/egg combo, coated them in bread crumbs, and then crisped them up in canola oil.

She put them in a glass dish and covered them with sauce, mozzy cheese, cottage cheese and parm and then did a second layer.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 375F for about 30 mins.

While we waited for the food to cook Keith and Amy made some fried ravioli – yum!

The spread – eggplant parm, whole wheat pasta with sauce, garlic bread, salad, sausage

My plate – eggplant, spaghetti and salad with a piece of garlic bread

After dinner we sat around and chatted for a little while before tackling the dishes and playing some Wii.

Keith wasn’t feeling so great so he went to sleep while Carl, Amy and I talked for a while before indulging in yummy brownies with a bit of ice cream.  Yum!  Carl was a sweetie and got my bowl and even took the picture for me and snapped this lovely picture of me (ha!).
