    Here's the meal Bonnie........

    I just put this together on Saturday...measurements are
    my best guess..Most of the time I don't measure when I create..I think I'm accurate though.

    Fried eggplant, Garlic Bread, Linguini, salad and wine...
    I like a lite white wine with this..that's just me..

    Fried eggplant:

    1 eggplant, sliced 1/4 to 3/8 inch
    2 eggs for wash
    Progresso Italian bread crumbs
    Olive oil for frying

    Heat oil...dip eggplant in egg (both sides)
    Coat well with bread crumbs
    Fry over medium heat both sides until light brown (1-2mins per side depending on heat)
    Place on paper towel to drain.

    Garlic Bread:

    Nice loaf of Italian bread
    Cut slices on bias about 1" thick...
    Coat with garlic/butter Italian seasoning sauce (below).
    Broil or grill.

    Sauce:
    1/4 - 1/2 stick butter
    olive oil
    Butter to oil ratio...about 2:1
    Italian seasoning to taste..1/2 T-1 T
    1-1 1/2 T garlic powder.

    Salad:
    What ever you want I guess..
    I used Lettuce, Chic peas, onions and black olives
    Made a vinegar and oil dressing..with red wine vinegar
    not the cider stuff.

    Notes:
    Coat the bread with the sauce...Pour the rest into the cooked drained linguini..

    Questions? Let me know...

    It took almost ten years for this one to get a comment?

    Can that date be right?

    Hard to beat a good gumbo.

    I mostly cook things that can be done in one pot, or two, if you count the rice pot.

    I used to cook for a family of five, now, alone, I cook WAY too much.
