One of the most underrated food items.  If I had a choice between a donut or toast…..



eggplant appetizers (Broiled Eggplant with Crunchy Parmesan Crust)

Not from my garden, but eggplant Diane brought home from her sister’s. Long, thin and white, looked up a recipe for these.

Broiled Eggplant with Crunchy Parmesan Crust

Bread with a mixture of bread crumbs and grated Parmesan cheese coating the eggplant with mayonnaise first.

Pan out , broil, flip, broil.

Over the years I’ve developed a taste for eggplant, of course the fresher the better.

Very good, when Diane asked for a taste later, “sorry all gone”, that good!


t bone etc.

fruit and vegetables are easy to prepare and can be served with anything including a T-bone Steak.

keeping the prep simple, simply salting and peppering a steak and serving it on a bed of lettuce, vegetables and a side of grapes.

3 to 5 minutes per side under the broiler.

some of the steak was left over for another meal.

Broiled Chicken with Barbecue sauce

Cut a half of a chicken into small pieces, usually cutting the drumstick, thighs and breast into two (or three) pieces each.

Simmer the chicken pieces in a pot of water for about 10 minutes, not necessary to cook them till done since they will be broiled.
Remove the chicken for the pan, and place on a foiled lined broiler pan and place under broiler, in my oven the second position from the top. Broil till slightly brown, turn, and broil the other side. Apply your favorite barbecue sauce and repeat, turning the chicken pieces till they are crisp.


Serve with a side order stir fried Edamame beans :

These I got at the warehouse Club, just heat them in the microwave for about 3 minutes, in the package, mine took about 4to 5 minutes, let them stand for about a minute, open put in a fry pan and stir fry. These I fried with chopped onion and garlic in a bit of oil. When almost done a splash of soy sauce. Hey are very plain alone so they are better cooked with flavoring, spices, other vegetables, etc.

The beverage with this meal was a glass of beer that I brewed called “Kent County Golden Promise”
