Our friend Cheryl gifted us with this beautiful eggplant:
I initially thought about making it into eggplant Parmesan, but in the end decided on a simple panko breadcrumb covering, which I’ll share with you later.
Who knew that Dave didn’t like eggplant? I thought it would be delicious, and it was. For me. For Dave….not so much.
Dave (picking up eggplant and smelling it): What is this? It looks like some sort of alien thing.
Libby: Eggplant, with a light dusting of panko breadcrumbs.
Dave: I’m not eating it.
Libby: What do you mean, you’re not eating it?
Dave: I mean that eggplant it not a normal food, and I am not eating it.
Libby: Just taste it.
20 minutes later.
Libby: Hey, your plate is empty! The eggplant was good, wasn’t it?
Dave: Yep. Addie really liked it.
Libby: You gave it to the dog? You fed eggplant to the dog? Did you even TASTE it?
Dave: No, I did not taste it. Eggplant is not designed for human consumption. I didn’t taste it because it is NOT A FOOD.
You know what really irritates me? The eggplant was really good. And he gave it to the DOG, who just gulped it down. This is a dog who thinks CAT POOP tastes great, and Dave gave her eggplant.
