Hello! For breakfast, had egg with cheese, bacon, coffee. Lunch - just some salami, had errands to run during lunch. Dinner is our Friday pizza nite. A sizzling pizza (have small iron skillets) Brush with olive oil, add Mama Lupe's tortilla, LC sauce, toppings and cheese. Bake at 350 till everything is sizzling and done. We love these, and the iron skillets make the tortilla nice and crispy on the bottom and not soggy. Probably a low carb margarita also...It's Friday!

Amber_Baby 01-18-2013 01:57 PM

Well sadly, I didn't get sent home... but it seems everyone else did cos the roads were almost empty and it was scary icy! It's pretty and Charlie loves it but apart from that, it's just too inconvenient to be enjoyable!

Ginger, how do you make the aubergine parmigiana?

I am really over winter and it has really just begun. Actually I detest winter from the very mention of it!

Greetings from Sunny San Diego! It's 70 degrees here today, this is my first winter living here and I'm in love!

B - Coffee w/ cream & splenda
L - Steamed broccoli tossed with diced ham, butter and parmesan cheese
D - I think I'm meeting up at the bar around dinner time with some friends for my buddy's birthday, so I'll probably order some buffalo wings and blue cheese dressing. YUM!

Crush a clove of garlic and chop it finely. Fry in a little olive oil for a couple of minutes, then add a tin of chopped tomatoes, some torn basil leaves and seasoning (black pepper and salt). Cook until it reduces and gets a bit thicker.

Meanwhile, slice a large aubergine/eggplant (this fed 2 of us) lengthwise, brush with olive oil, and pop under the grill (broiler) until golden, then turn it over. brush with more oil and repeat.

Put a bit of the tomato sauce in an oven proof dish, then half the aubergine slices. Throw in a handful of grated mozzarella, then repeat the layers. Top with grated Parmesan, then into a Gas Mk 6 (moderate) oven, and bake for around 25-30 mins, or until golden brown on top. Simple and very, very tasty!
