I am clearing out the frig of wine and veggies. Time to head home to Key West! Hopefully Hurricane Dean will stay south of us and I will not have a stressful drive back. But today is absolutely beautiful in southern Ohio, so it is a good day to clean up the place, clear out the frig, and pack up. Last night I pulled all the veggies left from last weeks bounty and made a pasta sauce. I used all of the goodies in this bowl, but my favorite item last night were these cute little "Fairytale" eggplant.
They were just so cute and very tasty! I am not going to list a recipe for the pasta sauce, as it was everything you see here plus garlic, fresh thyme, bay leaf, white wine and salt and pepper. Just sauteed everything in a big skillet with a glug of olive oil and mixed with pasta. I then baked it with Fontina cheese, Parmesan cheese and more sliced tomatoes on top with the leftover cheese sprinkled over all. It was very yumptious! As for the wine, well we finished off a couple of the bottles that I have already posted a review, so I will not go back to them.
This weekend we will pack up the car and head south to my brothers house for a day in Knoxville, then down to Gainesville for business and a day with friends, then down to Lake Wales for a day of business and then on home to Key West. I will not be posting for the next week due to the traveling. But...I will be back and visiting with all of you blogging friends next Friday. Hopefully I will find some new and interesting wines on the way home to tell you about and of course, the wonderful food that accompanied those wines. Have a good week everyone!
