Grilled Eggplant ‘Steaks’

I have had a fabulous week! On Monday, I climbed rocks at my favorite local park. On Tuesday, I took myself on a little roadtrip to Inspiration Peak. On Wednesday, I met up with a very close friend at her friend’s dad’s farm. (Which was amaaaaaazing! Orchards, gardens, vineyards, and a lovely, lovely house. I neglected to bring my camera, though and I am soooo disappointed I didn’t.)  Of course, all of these wonderful adventures were done in lieu of Watercolor Wednesday. After I got off work today, I changed my clothes and grabbed my backpack in order to head to a local park. It’s become one of my favorite places to sit and enjoy. In fact, it’s the same place I went to on Monday. When I got home, I harvested some wonders from the garden, and assessed all of my produce to make some decisions about dinner.

At the farm I was at last night, the hosts were kind enough to send me home with an armful of produce, including two BEAUTIFUL eggplants. Now, I don’t usually go out and buy eggplants… For some reason or another, I thought I didn’t like them, but today I realllllly proved myself wrong. I think I’d only had eggplants that had been cooked in lots of oil and were dense and heavy, but, not these! They grill up really nicely! I served them alongside a salad and grilled baby red potatoes. This entire week has been full of blessings!
