The Weekend Dish: 9/1/2018
Happy last weekend of summer / first weekend of September! Whaaaaaaat?!
I literally cannot believe we are here already; it feels like just yesterday that Joseph had his last day of school in May and a few days later we were celebrating my cousin’s wedding. And here in a blink, we had parent orientation for Joseph’s new year of school which starts next week and we’re staring at Labor Day weekend. Yowza!
Do you have anything fun planned for the holiday weekend? I hope you have a blast, stay safe, and eat amazing food!

I saw that Eggplant Parmesan is on for your Sunday Dinner this week. About a month or so ago, I made this for our Sunday Dinner. Here’s the catch though . . . . my double wall ovens broke the week before Memorial Day, and I’ve been without since then. After replacing the said part, still not working, then replacing the control bar still to no avail, I decided I would try eggplant parmesan on the grill. SO good. I skipped the frying part and grilled the sliced eggplant which I brushed with olive oil. Layered it with all the sauce – and I layered in ricotta – all in a foil fan, covered it with foil, and placed the whole thing on the grill and let it meld together that way. I also sprinkled seasoned Panko bread crumbs over the grilled eggplant slices as I was layering them in the pan. I used fresh mozzarella on top. This was so easy and the finished eggplant parmesan was delicious! I had no leftovers for the next day’s lunch. And it was a bit quicker to prepare as well since I skipped the breading and frying step, just off the grill into the foil pan. Thought I would share this “tip” with you. (and I’m still without my ovens, but the company has agreed to replace them and I should have completely new ovens by the end of the month.)
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
