Today, I am thankful for fuss-free eggplants.
While I agonize over my "high-maintenance" tomato and basil plants, the eggplants are thriving.
I'm not neglecting them. They get their share of water and fertilizer and sunshine. I'm just glad that the plants are relatively fuss-free and independent. Easy-to-grow, easy-to-please.
And, although I don't have eggplant dreams (does anyone?), I do have a caponata recipe in my archive - will be delicious spread thickly on toasted slices of homemade focaccio.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
