Some foods I find difficult to cook. Exotic stuff like squid. Cakes from scratch. Eggplant, definitely. That last one is a vegetable I would like to master, but the best I can do with it is meh. And the worst, well …
One of my choir members was promising to bring ratatouille to our choir retreat this past weekend. We cancelled a few days before, but it got me thinking: I could try the famous eggplant casserole. Last week’s turned out great, though I forgot the onion.
Tonight I wanted something quick, and I still had some eggplant and a zucchini. And a wok. What if I stir-fried it? Not quite a casserole, but after a fresh tomato, a splash of lime juice, and some oregano and cumin, I had a French/Cuban fusion in a Chinese cooking thing.
Enough left over for somebody’s lunch tomorrow.
Hope you readers are eating well at home these days.
