For some odd reason, I decided to plant an eggplant plant in our garden this year. Never mind the fact that none of us have ever really eaten a eggplant. I do strange things like from time to time…made sense at the nursery when I was picking out all the garden plants but now I’m left scratching my head. My neighbor gave us some veggie last year (squash, maybe) that we liked and I perhaps got the names mixed up (?!?).
I honestly don’t even know if this sucker is done growing. But it looks like a snake. And I kept freaking out every time I went down to garden thinking there was a snake. So, for my sanity, I had to pick it. There are several mini-snakes that continue growing on the plant.
I have NO IDEA what to do with this. I haven’t a clue what eggplant tastes like (I know, pitiful but true). I found a few recipes on allrecipes.com…eggplant parmesan, grilled eggplant.
If anyone has any tried and true eggplant recipes, please send them my way.
(And to tell you how truly clueless I am at times...I wrote this entire post calling it zucchini, until I decided to google it while the picture loaded and see if I could find more recipes. Turns out, it's not zucchini, it's an eggplant. Maybe this gardening isn't really for me?!?)
