Our weekend was relaxing and yummy!!!

It was beautiful out here on Friday and Saturday.
After the school we hanged together around our house!

On Saturday, Aria and I went to the Venetian Shore Park
and enjoyed to spend a few hours together...

When we got back home I baked a few eggplants and potatoes.
I got those baby eggplants last week. They were yummy!

Baked&Stuffed Eggplant;
Combine cubed tomatoes, cucumber, chopped scallion, parsley,
finely chopped Romain lettuce and stuff each eggplant with this mixture.
Drizzle with the dressing.


Dressing;
Olive oil, garlic(minced), balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper.


It was delicious! Aria loved it.

Even though he is not a big fan of eggplant :)

Baked Potatoes;

We all love baked potatoes mixed with Parmesan cheese,
topped with a teaspoon whipped butter each
and sprinkled with chopped chives...
Mmmmmm that was a quick ride to heaven!!!

  13. Oh I wish I lived near the beach! There is something so relaxing about the ocean... I have only had eggplant once and cooked it never. Is it hard? Not sure about my kids either-everything has to be covered with a sauce or cheese. LOL!
