So the garden has decided "Oh! You want eggplant?!? You're gonna get eggplant, bitch!" There are currently 11 on the plants ready to pick next week. I decided to make ratatouille tonight. For those of you not familiar with the dish, it is basically just a mixture of eggplant, summer squash, tomatoes, and cheese. As I was preparing the dish I had a "furry moment" where I pictured myself as a giant rat (a la Remy) putting all of the ingredients into the pan and cooking them up. BTW, I AM looking to commission a rat fursuit since the "mascot" of the local sci-fi con, Bubonicon, is a rat, and I think it would be awesome to be a rodent character. But anyway, I thought it was pretty fun to imagine myself as a furry character as I prepared a meal. Overall it turned out ok, but one of the zucchini I used had a very tough skin that I should have removed before cooking. *shrugs* Oh well. As I posted earlier, part of being a good cook is learning from mistakes and improving the next time.
