another "ground beef makeover:" thanks to johnsonville sausage, i had this gorgeous new sur la table baking dish to show it off in.

the original recipe is here, at

my changes included:

-eliminated the pasta, replacing it altogether with thinly sliced, peeled eggplant

-replaced the ground beef with ground sausage

-doubled the fresh garlic (and started the layering with a drizzle of olive oil and fresh minced garlic)

-eliminated the mushrooms

true confession here: i intended to use the mushrooms.  i really did.  i'm frankly embarrassed and in heaps of trouble right now with the husband for letting perfectly good fresh produce go to waste over the last few months.  i promise, i'm working on that.

 this was delish.  my only tweak next time will be to add ten minutes to the bake time, and that with a foil cover to begin steaming the eggplant.  it was a wee bit un-appetizingly chewy this time.  bless my friend stacy and her family for loving it anyway.

About Me
I'm a mom of five, one-time semi-finalist for The Next Food Network Star, now "focusing" on my photography business and home-educating our awesome growing chefs.
My favorite things to cook
garlic, sweets, and thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can still taste my grandma Margaret's fried peach pies, grandpa's tomatoes fresh and warm from the garden sun (eaten whole while standing at the kitchen window)... Grandma Rose's five cheese macaroni and marinated hearts of palm. Now we're making our own traditions with dad's jalapeno mac n' cheese and my son's made-from-scratch-with-no-recipe pie crust (and any filling that strikes his fancy!).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all! Learning to love chicken even when I've held it raw. Enjoying bananas and brussels sprouts! Teaching my kiddos to cook and letting them experiment, without my input, to create their own masterpieces.
My cooking tragedies
The ginormous bowl of tuna pasta salad (which I detest!) which got pitched directly after I made it, on a pregnancy-induced-craving whim... the "vinegar and sour cream" crock-pot chicken I made my new husband of two weeks, which he couldn't choke down!
