Eggplant Parmesan I
This is a great recipe. However there were a few big changes I needed to make. 1) unless you get an unusually large eggplant, you will likely need to have 3 eggplant or slice MUCH thinner than 3/4-inch. You won't have 2 layers unless you do this. Plus, I can't imagine feeding 8 people on one eggplant. 2) eggplant soaks up oil when it is fried, so you will need A LOT more than 8 Tbs. 3) peel the eggplant. The skin on an eggplant is kind of tough. 4) I added 2 cloves of garlic. It just seemed like basil wasn't enough. That change is optional, but the first three aren't.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin
Very, very good! I did it in the slow cooker and it came out just great! It is a little salty with the brown gravy mix, so I would suggest editing out some of the salt that gets rubbed on the tenderloin.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese
"This could get addicting," said hubby while going in for seconds. He laughed when I said we were having mac and cheese for dinner. "What are we, 5 years old?!" Guess who got the last laugh?
