Aubergine -sounds more delicious than eggplant

June11

I am as predictable as they come.  Friends that sit down with me in a restaurant will know what I am going to order before I do.  If the dish includes artichoke or eggplant-I’m ordering it.

Eggplant is a staple the world over and I have savoured it in Greece, Jerusalem and more recently in Sicily.

On that evening, D was at the grill and when he needed more rosemary for seasoning, he plucked it from the bush (I’m talking 4 1/2 feet high) that grew by our friends’ path.

The veggies were just one part of this amazing meal.

At my recent cocktail birthday party a friend served eggplant dip that she had purchased at the Greek Market.  This was not a baba ganuosh style.  It was hearty and chunky and full of luscious olive oil and tons of garlic.  She served it with cut up pita that had been simply sprinkled with sea salt.  It was so good, that I brought home the left overs and tossed it with pasta to stretch the taste farther.

It is pictured in the background of this photo from the Greek Market site.
