This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Ah, the eggplants! I make one of my favorite recipes. You can do all sorts of modifications with this.

Chorico sausage
Minced garlic
Fresh herbs: basil, oregano or other to taste
Fresh mozzarella cheese
Grated mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese

Line a cookie sheet with foil. Cut eggplants in one quarter inch slices and arrange closely on the sheet. Layer thin sliced chorico sausage (pre-cooked) on eggplant slice. Top each with a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese. Top with a fresh tomato slice. To each add garlic, salt and herbs. Top with some grated mozzarella cheese and a bit of Parmesan cheese.

Roast in a 400*F oven for about 15 min or until cheese is bubbly and browned.

I make this with and without meat. Different herbs. More or less cheese. Different cheeses. Spread the eggplants for little tapas. Closer for a dish more like eggplant Parmesan.

I forgot the most important thing! Drizzle the top with EVO extra V olive oil.
