    No need to trouble yourself if you prefer not to.
    OMG did I under-use smileys in a post? I believe I did!

    I wasn't chastising you, just chiding myself for my susceptibility to ENP charm. After all, when others will do it for you, why should you?

    Never mind me. I'm touchy lately for reasons even I don't understand.

    I apologize...and thank you for your help.

    I'll need to stop and buy some olive oil on the way home, I see...

    I may try that, but not right off. My wife doesn't care for the flavor of sesame oil.

    I love it myself.

    1. Choose a perfectly ripe eggplant
    2. Find a simple recipe that allows the flavor of the eggplant to shine
    3. Plate the dish in an attractive manner
    4. Dump in the trash, as eggplant is gross
    5. Order pizza

    I've never seen such a long discussion on eggplant. I've actually never seen/heard a discussion on eggplant.

    Our family loves a dish called Hunkar Begendi, which is an eggplant puree made with Bechamel sauce. It's heavenly served with fresh tomato sauce and meatballs. Pretty darn great without the sauce and meatballs. From The Mediterranean Kitchen by Joyce Goldstein:

    Hunkar Begendi


    3 medium globe eggplants, 1 pound each

    For the Bechamel:
    2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
    2 Tbsps. flour
    1 cup heavy cream, heated
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    pinch fresh nutmeg

    1/2 freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Prick each eggplant in a few places with a fork. Put them in a roasting pan and bake until very soft, 45 minutes to an hour. Turn them occasionally for even cooking. Let stand until cool enough to handle, then peel and drain the pulp in a colander for 15 minutes. Puree the pulp in a food processor (you should have 6 to 8 cups).

    For the bechamel, heat the butter in a small saucepan over low heat until melted. Add the flour and cook until blended, about 4 minutes. Whisk in the cream and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 4 minutes. Add the salt, pepper and nutmeg.

    Combine the eggplant puree, bechamel and Parmesan in a mixing bowl. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Keep the eggplant puree warm over hot water until ready to serve or reheat just before serving.

    Not only does that recipe seem as though it would be delicious to me...

    ...it would double as a really good baby food.
