Some of our good friends from Virginia visited last weekend bringing a shipment of veggies straight from Elizabeth's parent's garden...a late summer aid-package from our friends and families.
We all went down to the Italian market for some foodie foraging; we cam back with some fresh ricotta. Elizabeth made her signature eggplant parmesan...discs of eggplant, breaded lightly and sauteed, layered with ricotta and smothered in tomato sauce using fresh Romas (again from Norman & Judy!) and basil grown on the patio...and also a gift from Norman & Judy. You can pretty much say that 3/4 of this dish was homegrown start to finish!
