What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

It’s hot out…and the last thing I want to do is cook. Plus we made so much food on the grill last week, we already have grill burnout. I’ve been asked to not grill any food for a few days. Fine with me, the last thing I want to do is stand next to a hot grill. But then there is that one question…

What’s for dinner?

I went to the farmer’s market and got a bit inspired. Being in a rut lately eating the same foods (grilled at that) and figured I’d try something new. Soooo….I got eggplant and zucchini; neither of which I’ve ever purchased before, and figured I shall try Ratatouille.

Ratatouille

My friend Beck made this a while ago, so I kind of followed her lead on it. (click her name for her recipe. :) )

Next time I probably wouldn’t add the tomato sauce and parmesan cheese on half of it, especially serving it with chicken parmesan for the ‘no want new things…want meat..’ people in my house. Both together covered in cheese and marinara sauce was too much in my opinion.

Be prepared to be in the kitchen a while for this. I sliced everything very thin.

Ratatouille

Added salt, pepper, and drizzled extra virgin olive oil on top, and tossed it into the oven.

Yeah…have music on while you do this. It makes time go by much faster. :)

Where’s the chicken parm you ask? Here you go. This was kind of just sliced and tossed on top of everything.

So…what’s on your plate tonight?

One thought on “What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

  1. That looks delish! A lot of slicing involved, so yes I would need music and maybe some wine. I don’t know why I don’t buy eggplant more often. I always like it when I order it, but for some reason I never cook with it. That should change!
