I am thinking when I am off on Thursday to pick my eggplant, and make eggplant parmesan I have one that is ready to pick.

What do you think?

Well, The Eggplant Parmesan With Meat Sauce Is Done, And I Added A Picture Below.

It Was Very Good By The Way.

Eggplant (Solanum melongena) is a species of nightshade. As a member of the genus Solanum, it is related to both the tomato and the potato.

I love eggplant parmesan, even though I can't eat it, but I was told that there is lactose free parmesan cheese, I just have to find it. Your photos are lovely, and I would pick that now. Eggplant and Zucchini 2 of my favs.

Looks like enough for eggplant parmesan, stuffed eggplant and enough left for frying a couple slices for breakfast under your eggs.

King, that eggplant looks better than what I see in the stores... Is it me, or does it make everyone's mouth tingle when eating? Hope you enjoy!

I cut it up today, and it looked good so I breaded it and fried it up and put together an eggplant parmesan. I made meat sauce this morning using hamburger, hot sausage, and peperoni. in a bit will turn on the oven to finish it off.
