Such a pretty site! Our neighbor has gifted us with several eggplants. I usually just slice them into a 13X9 dish, add some diced tomatoes and lot of herbs and spices, maybe a jalapeno, chopped really fine. Add some nice shredded cheese on top and bake for about 40 minutes. That is my slimmed down version of eggplant Parmesan. Another friend dropped off some peppers from her garden. I have already used several of these. Don't they look pretty in this wire and bead wrapped basket? This basket was fun to make and looks good too.
