It was in the 50's early this morning. A drive to retrieve my cell phone at dawn. I could not find it last night and did locate it. What did we do without cell phones? I carry mine all the time and was a little uncomfortable not having it beside me as I made the early morning drive.
A day the weather was perfect. Another image of one of my humming birds. I did not see many during the summer but now an abundance in my garden.
Lately not much of an appetite or rather this seems to be most of the time. Nothing sounds good or taste very good. For some reason I have had eggplant on my mind. Started looking at a number of recipes and the thought if I come across a small - one person - eggplant I will experiment.
I found it at the market this morning and just finished eating a tasty simple dish.
Peeled and sliced 6 small sections and brushed with olive oil and garlic - baked 425 degrees for about 25 minutes - turning once. Transferred to a small casserole and layered with Parmesan cheese, my basil, my last tomato - sliced and mozzarella cheese. Back into the oven at 325 degrees for 15 minutes covered and then 5 minutes uncovered.
This just something I put together. Do this most of the time. Very seldom follow a recipe.
If I do say so myself - it was tasty. This gives me option as I eat more vegetables and very little meat. Would like to stop eating it altogether.
Also this morning found a very small seedless watermelon that my little girl's will like.
Family coming tomorrow for a home cooked meal of roast and vegetables. It looks like it will be a delightful day for Jamie, Alan and Beth to rest and the little girls to run through the grass.
They make my heart smile. The silence of my life becomes full of laughter and chatter.
