Sorry, not sorry (CtBF: Baba Ganoush)
"You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time." - Abraham Lincoln
"Sometimes you have to do what you don't like to get to where you want to be." - Tori AmosIn the never-ending list of foods that are or are not generally acceptable for consumption in Chez Cher, it can be very challenging to get a meal on the table depending who is sitting at the table...
Hamburgers on the grill - two yays, one nay
Duck - one nay, two yays
Pancakes for dinner - two yays, one nay
Grilled fish - two yays, one nay
Eggplant (other than in Eggplant Parm form) - three nays
I knew this was going to be a tough sell going in. I couldn't even sell myself on the idea.
It wasn't going to matter how much tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and cayenne pepper were added. You can cover it up with parsley. You can put it in a pretty dish. You can serve it along side olive oil brushed, grilled pita bread (yum).
I wanted this to be a game changer. Kind of, but not totally.
I guess I'm at the point in life where I know what I like and what I don't like. Isn't one of the "definitions" of insanity doing the same thing the same way but expecting different results?
Eggplant and I have been around the block a few times. We just weren't meant to be. Sorry. Not sorry.
But the pita was delicious!
