Mighty good looking ribs Dano. Lemme know when you want to upgrade that smoker, I know where you can get a good deal on a WSM.

Yeah, in some respects I miss the competitions...on the other hand, we've always been a middle of the pack team and frankly I just got tired of writing checks for the privilege of hearing the same 5 or 6 teams get their name called every weekend.

I didn't want to heat up the kitchen, so reverted to a tried and true easy recipe for some gorgeous eggplant, zucchini, and yellow squash that I was gifted.

World's Easiest Microwave Ratatouille

1 eggplant peeled and cubed (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 small-medium onion sliced (about 1/2 cup)
1-4 cloves garlic minced (I used a large clove of elephant garlic)
3 T olive oil
1 green or red pepper seeded & cubed
2 zucchini and/or yellow squash peeled & sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 16 oz. can stewed tomatoes (I also threw in some fresh tomatoes that needed to be used)
1 tsp salt
generous grinds of pepper
1/2 tsp dried italian seasoning, or oregano & thyme, or substitute/add fresh herbs (I had some fresh oregano, basil and rosemary on hand).

Combine eggplant, onion, garlic, and olive oil in large microwave-safe casserole. Cook covered on high for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, cover and cook on high for 8-10 minutes until done.

Serve hot, cold, or room temperature.

Margie,

I might use this one this week- Thanks! Do you just serve as is, or over pasta?

Let me know what you think. I have served it as is, over pasta, with brown rice, and as a bruschetta topping (used a smaller dice). It is a wonderfully adaptive dish.

I made this quiche the other day & it turned out well enough. I wanted to make my own crust (I prefer mine over store-bought), which I usually do (I didn't have the time), but with creme cheese instead of creme fraiche. It's basically the ingredients of a smoked salmon bagel (smoked salmon, capers, etc.).

Gobi Manchurian (an Indo-Chinese cauliflower dish)... we broke out the fryer to make this at home.

We are interested to see if we can adapt the technique from this recipe to avoid deep frying...

Am rediscovering my love of cast iron pans on a gas stove.

We've been sold a lot of bunk about how hard they are to maintain or that they require a lot of oil when cooking or whatever.

Read the instructions on your modern / nonstick cookware, most will say you shouldn't use it at more than medium heat.

Getting a cast iron skillet screaming hot is the best way to throw a char on tofu and vegetables.

Just reheated some Trader Joe's latkes (potato pancakes) in it today, without any additional oil. crisped them nicely.
