  1. Eggplant is great. Cut it into pieces and put it in the compost pile. A few months later put the compost if the garden and use it to grow something worth eating. :-)

    There were 42 comments when I got here and I almost didn’t comment to avoid messing up the perfect count. But I wanted to a) say “happy birth day” and b) support you on eggplants.

  3. I hate vegetables. Always have. Hitler was a vegetarian. gotta be a connection. Anyway, my late mother in law made eggplant delicious.

    Take the eggplant and skin it. then cut it into relatively thin slices. Dip it into flour, beaten egg and then bread crumbs. Fry in olive oil until nicely brown on both sides.

    Cover with a nice red sauce (she called it “gravy”), mozzarella cheese and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes.

    MMMMMMMMMM.

    Robert: happy birthday, but you’re just a kid. I have t-shirts in my drawer older than you.

  5. You are nearly a punk as far as I’m concerned, but I didn’t live at Microsoft either as you did; I lived in academic places. But then I’m only 5 years older than you and my spouse has a b-d tomorrow. He’s a bit more techie than I am, but he’s going to be 29 forever on the 20th year. Does this mean the goats on the mt are the cools?

    I think spouse doesn’t love eggplant either.

    Happy Birthday–the bennae

  7. Hey! I became 44 on the 13th! My wife says: “You have the look of eternal youth!” To which I reply: “But I have the feeling of eternal elderliness!”

    Happy B-Day.

  9. Secret of eggplant: like a portabello and tofu, it’s a relatively tasteless, textureless flavor vehicle, so you’ve got to treat it similarly (i.e. baba ganouj or a ratatoulli), although I like them sliced, rolled up around prosciutto and mozarella, then grilled.
    And for those who don’t like Brussels Sprouts – try them with a vinaigrette; the acidity cuts/complements the bitterness

  11. Does this apply to all kinds of eggplant? Chinese, Sicilian, so forth and so on… there are a lot of varieties than can be quite different than run of the mill eggplant.

  15. Happy B-day Mr S :-)
    If you take the eggplant, slice it very thin, cover it will some good Italian sauce (your choice but should be sweet) and then bake at 325 for about 30 minutes and then cover with some real Parmigiano cheese, will taste just like chicken Parmigiano , Honest.
