Hi Sweetpepper
Pattypan is a type of squash, it's white and sort of flattish, creamier tasting than other squash, too. They're good, mom says. I won't eat them, but Willie and Peppino and Maxine eat that stuff.
Mom has been making eggplant parm for most of her life, and just found out you can bake the eggplant! So, here's what she did yesterday. She made the marinara, then egged and breaded the eggplant with breadcrumbs, not flour. She put the eggplant on 2 greased cookie sheets, sprayed the top lightly with non stick cooking oil (she uses Trader Joe's canola or olive), and put in a 350 oven for 25 minutes. It's a lot less messy than frying them! Then, she layers sauce, eggplant, pecorino cheese (she prefers pecorino over parmesan, you might find it in the store as imported romano cheese), sauce, eggplant, cheese, etc. On the top layer, she puts the cheese on the eggplant, then ladles sauce, then adds more cheese. Bake at 350 for about 1/2 hour, let sit for a few minutes to set up before cutting into squares.
Hope that is a good recipe for your mom.
Today it's raining and cloudy, but still kind of warm for this time of year. The leaves in our yard are still green. Mom is looking for the change of color soon, though.
It's gonna be a good day for mom to catch up on laundry, reading, and some errands. She is reading The Beak of the Finch right now and loving it. The Grants did exceptional work in the Galapagos on Darwin's finches. Mom can't even imagine going to a small desert island for a couple of days, much less over 20 years! Anyway, it should be a good day for us birdies, with mom here most of the day. Hope you are having a good day, my friend. Hugs, Falco
