Bacon is magical – it makes eggplant delicious

I used to hate eggplant. But recently, in my adult years, I’ve grown to like this purple plant.

Wanting something light for dinner, I decided to make a salad. I pulled out a nice plump eggplant that I had picked up from the farmer’s market yesterday and grilled it up with some olive oil and Italian seasoning (a mixture of dried basil, oregano, garlic…the usual), salt and pepper. I also chopped up some fresh basil. Wanting some protein, I cut up and fried some lovely uncured applewood smoked bacon, courtesy of Trader Joe’s. Put them all on a plate with some halved cherry tomatoes and dress with some olive oil & balsamic vinaigrette. Yummy and pretty! This would make a nice starter…
