Tasty Lunch... Failed Dinner

Doesn't that look good??  That is what went on top of our cucumber at lunch.
Fresh Tomato from the garden, Fresh Basil from the garden, EVOO, & some Lime Juice.  

Fried Okra, Cucumber Salad, Left Over Apple-Pear Crisp, Raw Veggies & Humus & Watermelon.

Then Came Dinner.

I had grand plans for dinner.

They included this beauty.

I like eggplant.  My favorite way to prepare it is to roast it will some Tamari (soy sauce) and liquid smoke.

But I wanted to try something new so with the stirring help of a 3 year old we made up a new marinade.

EVOO, Raw Honey (I reuse the honey bear container) & minced garlic.

Sounded good.  Looked Good.  Even Tasted Good.

And then I roasted it.  And roasted it.  And roasted it.

After about an hour I quit.  I don't know what when wrong but they just never firmed up.

They just sat there all soggy.


I know what you're thinking.  Maybe the oven wasn't working.

Well it was.

How do I know??

This beautiful pan of zucchini chips turned into an ugly pan of ash!!

Yep, some how I managed to burn one item while under cooking the other!

Now that takes skill!!!

So in the end the hubs had Taco Bell and I had yogurt, veggies & humus and the small bits of zucchini I could salvage.

Oh and this.

A fruit salad mix - orange, kiwi & strawberries.

Leave it to dessert to save the day.
