I cannot sign off for the weekend without a hat tip to my favorite autumn vegetable, the humble aubergine, or eggplant as I've come to know him. Versatile, meaty, smooth and delicious, is there a more sexy or versatile berry? He truly is the George Clooney of fall vegetables and a member of the nightshade family (along with tomatoes and potatoes). Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has some customarily excellent recipes -- for smoky baba ganoush, (nostalgic) moussaka & aubergine involtini -- here (via The Guardian).
To all my readers, thank you for being here. I hope you have an absolutely lovely weekend, that you walk in nature, read a good book, and eat something delicious. -- Miss W xx
