Art is Happening in the Kitchen
Today I’m making Eggplant Caponata using the extra eggplants from the garden.
We’ve had eggplant parmagiana and eggplant tempura (a fancy way to say breaded and fried.) I’ve chopped it and mixed it into vegetarian spaghetti sauce. And we’ve shared it with a friend. All the above recipes are delicious, but we just aren’t quite ready to have it again. So caponata is a wonderful way to have eggplant, and it can be canned, just like chutney.
I love caponata on a toasty slice of good bread as an appetizer. One of the best things you can serve your guests (and yourself!)
While I’m doing that I have the laptop in the kitchen so I can run back and forth. I got a newer version of Corel Painter and it’s now installed on the little laptop and my big new notebook computer.
More fun stuff from the computer on the kitchen table . . . Remember these? Now they’re a painting. Well, sort of. This was just practice, but I’m discovering some new approaches to actual physical painting by exploring the program.
