Eggplant, Swimming, Grilling, Babies!

Every now and then my fridge gets overrun with veggies. This isn’t  a bad thing, but I HATE when I let stuff go bad (in all honesty it does happen from time to time) so when things are looking too full I often get a little crazy and start throwing mass amounts of veggies into whatever I’m making.

Last week I got an Eggplant in my Door to Door Organics box, I had previously let one go bad so I was determined to use it up! Mr. Gaunt did a landscaping job last week for extra cash, so I was trying to be a good girlfriend and have dinner ready for him. Here lies the problem: Mr. Gaunt + Eggplant =BAD! He hates Eggplant. HATES IT! I thought I could secretly convince him it was yummy by making: Eggplant Parmesan, Eggplant lasagna, and now Eggplant Spaghetti. No such luck.

In the end I picked out all the Eggplant for him, and he was a happy camper, and I got leftover Eggplant all week! Yay!

Along with Eggplant I needed to use 3 tomatoes and 1 zucchini that night. The spaghetti was super easy though, I sautéed the cubed Eggplant in olive oil, then added the zucchini, then the tomatoes. When they were all nice and cooked I threw in 1/2 a jar of Spaghetti Sauce. Poured over whole Wheat past…yum! What’s not to like?  Oh and because I realized Mr. Gaunt would hate it, I added some Mango Chicken Sausage slices (we got them at Costco, and I’m just not sure I really like them) in the end.

Summer is pretty much here now! We are going to a GRAND OPENING POOL PARTY at Jenny and Justin’s this weekend! I’m so freaking excited to start swimming everyday now!  Also on my list of summer LIKES: BBQing! Mr. Gaunt and I own a very nice (never been opened) Charmglow BBQ (similar to this one) that Mr. Gaunt got two years ago on clearance. Problem is we don’t have a deck, porch or yard that we can set it up in, so it sits in Ms. G’s garage in the box. Sad day. I have been CRAVING grilled veggies and corn. Drooling over the pictures on FoodGawker.com. I think I’m gonna bring some Veggie Kabobs to the party on Sunday, and then take some to Ms. G’s house to use on her grill!

And I leave you with some adorable pics of when Liam met Hula this weekend. They were best buds, too stinkin cute!
