Eggplant Recipes ( How To Cook )

               Hello! and welcome back here today on Garden The Easy Way, this is Ken and Marilou.  

               Today, Marilou and I have 2 more eggplant recipes. We hope you all will give them a try, we have not try them yet, but Marilou and I are going to decide on one and cook it on Sunday, we will give you a update later on which one we chose to cook, and how it turned. Sometime we try different things to cook and they taste so bad we throw it out, but we never give up, we just keep on cooking and trying different things to cook.    

               We sometimes get it just right and it is so delicious, and that is why we never give up our good home cooking, and when you get it right it will be better eating than any restaurant food you can buy, and the price is a whole cheaper. Well I will get off here and let Marilou give you the other 2 recipes that we found on the Internet. ( Enjoy ).
