Yes, it’s that time again in the W-S household — we have way way WAY too much eggplant. So I’m going to put some on the grill and smoke it, I’ll make minted baba ghanoush out of some of it, and if I get really crazy, I’ll make some eggplant rollatini. Thanks to all who participated in the FB “what the hell do I do with four pounds of eggplant?” survey and so generously donated recipes.

Earlier today I got busy with the new box grater (whee — what a useful small thing) and got carried away making lemon zest. These things happen to me; I don’t know if they happen to other people. Tonight’s menu will also have some lemon-garlic hummus and possibly lemon-ginger-date cookies. I guess that skews us to a Middle Eastern theme for the night.

Speaking of, if you’re local to Albany, the Iraqi Refugee Project is a worthwhile outfit. They help war refugees resettle, find jobs, negotiate their way through an alien and hostile culture. (Remember, these are the people we think highly enough of that we’ve destroyed their country to help them into modernity.) Anyhow, as an act of personal war reparations, I’m rounding up some donations of kitchen gear, school clothing, etc. They come in with nothing and many times are asked to repay the State Department for their airfare over. Welcome to America.
