Dinner, August 3
Here's a big shot of our kitchen so you can see how huge it is. We feed so many people that we are licensed as a commercial kitchen.

Dinner, August 3

Here are the eggplants, sliced and ready to roast. We get soooo many from our CSA that baba ganoush is a great solution for using them all up. These roasted for about 25 minutes before I scraped the meat out of the skin and put it in the cuisenart. I put about a cup of raw tahini, 5 cloves of garlic, juice of one lime (we are out of lemon), olive oil and salt.

Dinner, August 3

Tomatoes, Yellow Squash, Green Zucchini going into a 400 F oven to roast for about an hour.

Dinner, August 3

The entire spread.
Our inspiration for this dinner was carnival food since it is just about the time for the state fair. We thought long and hard about making Fried Vegan Twinkies but time did not permit. We cut up about two cartons of strawberries and cooked them in Turbinado. We drizzled the strawberry sauce over the funnel cake.

What we listened to while cooking:
Sex Pistols - Bodies
Gnarles Barkley - Run (my favorite jam right now)
France Gall - laisser tomber les filles
Gumnaam (that song from Ghost World)
Ghost Mice
Gwen Stefani - Hollaback Girl - Uh huh, this my shit!

The Verdict from house members:
Francois said that the Napoleons were the tastiest thing he's eaten in the house
Clayton commented on how fancy it was

At work we nuke the eggplant, which actually makes for a smoother consistency sometimes. Also easier. You don't have to cut it up!
