  1. Ahh, the farmers market,
    In the past we have loaded up on the eggplant and various squash. Elongated squash I slice lengthwise and the with the eggplants it depends on the shape. Once sliced brush LIBERALLY with oil, vinegar and herbs as they soak up the oil with a vengeance and let stand in the marinade for a while. Then using a perforated tray made specially for the barbeque (so not to allow the slices to fall between the grates) we fry the batch till golden brown. We usually eat this hot but I’ve found storing the leftovers in Zip-lock bags in the frig. they taste even better cold as leftovers. Try it!

  2. Welcome back! 🙂
