Niccceee MadDog, a classic dish & amy we are missing your posts, I know the quality of seafood up in NorCal is much better then what I get here at the beach, on the ocean, in SoCal, fishermen & everything, bad fish! I am just saying?

I really dig our little trips up to San Francisco, because the food is so much better then what Orange County has to offer.

Portion control extraordinaire! I don't think I would be so restrained.




About 5 years ago my wife and I started eating from salad plates instead of dinner plates, smaller portions look larger on a smaller plate but I was trying to show off for the picture with a fancy plate

Take that falernumites!

Hey MadDogMike, do you do the cooking for your family? or share the task with the wife?

I do all the cooking in my household, but my wife likes to make baked goods now & then, otherwise I make all the meals.

come to think of it! I do the house cleaning,sewing and gardening.
Wait! oh my god, I am the wife! in this marriage!

My wife and I both enjoy cooking. On the days I work, I don't get home until 8pm - a little late to cook dinner. Most of the time it's just the two of us since my son is always at school or work (or hanging out with his friends) so we cook big and eat a lot of leftovers

I did notice one thing; when she cooks, I often clean. But when I cook I have to clean the kitchen 'cuz I'm a messy cook. What's up with that!!!

I do most of the cooking, while Sweetie B rules in the Let's Eat Out Dept.
Cooking today finally! A large pan of eggplant parmagiana. Sorry the pix are blurry- almost
forgot to take them at all!

Fresh basil, thyme, oregano, Italian parsley, celery, carrot, garlic, white vermouth, salt & pepper simmered in olive oil as a base for tomato sauce.



Add Pomi brand packaged chopped tomatoes plus tomato paste, bit of red wine, more chopped garlic, all simmering for 2 more hours. (tomatoes packed in metal cans have toxic problems I've learned) Add some sugar if it's too tart.



Baked eggplant slices



All of this disappears once it's layered up with mozzarella cheese, but I'll show ya that later anyhow.

*bumping the thread*

Amy,
I love Eggplant Parmigiana, you use my secret ingredient (In my case Sweet Vermouth) in the sauce, I'll substitute red wine when I am out of vermouth, also if you have to use canned Tomatos I have had good luck with Progresso Brand, but Pomi is a good way to go, not to many stores in my area carry it though, I do make the effort and crush my own roma tomatos which I grow in the garden when time is not an issue.
Great job tonight!

Looks great Amy. Does eggplant make everyone's tongue itch or am I allergic to it?

MadDogMike,
Other people report the same thing, I came across this remeady on the Interwebs

"salted and soaked the eggplant in water about 15-30 minutes prior to cooking as it draws out something from the eggplant which can cause the itchy mouth (the water will be brown after soaking)"

Also breading & frying the eggplant seems to alleviate the effect for many people, but some people are just allergic to Eggplant.

Breaded & fried still makes me itch, but I'll give the salting a shot. It's too bad 'cuz I like eggplant.

Have you ever made the Flaming Onion Volcano on your teppanyaki?

Welcome closettiki, to the most interesting thread in the world.
The meal you posted sounds great! but the pictures are hard to make out, so I think you may have to make all that great food again.....

And invite all of us over!
This is a long standing rule of this thread......that I just made up....sooooooooo....
