What a 2$ basket of eggplants got me meal wise
I made my regular run to the produce market. I grab a basket full of eggplants for 2$. Hmm. Eggplant parmesean. With a 1$ large can of pasta sauce a 2.50$ bag of shredded mozzerella and a little parmesean cheese. For 5.50$ I made 2 pans of eggplant parmesean. I peeled and sliced the eggplant. Dipped in milk then bread crumbs mixed with flour and some all purpose seasoning salt. Deep fried them. Drained real well on paper towels. I put a little sauce on bottom of each pan. Then a layer of eggplant. Then sauce. Then shredded mozzerella and parmesean cheese. then another layer of eggplant etc. Layering like a lasagne. Ending with sauce and cheese on top layer of eggplant. That made 2 square pans. One I wrapped up good and put in the freezer for another day. One went in the fridge for tonights dinner. We'll have garlic bread with it. Nothing like good comfort food on a wet and chilly day. It's been raining on and off all day. Nothing beats 2.75$ a meal not including the cost of the garlic bread. If we If I decide to add another veggie as a side. Then that and garlic bread would be about 3.50$ for todays meal for 2 of us.
