August26
Hey,
Who are you folks picking on ME, HUH, your all cruising for a bruising, you too Sis, never had a fight or argument in our lives, this might be the first, you didn't tell me you had seen the picture, top secret is that it, is Betty selling my son's picture? is that how she's paying for her swim lesson's, yep probably, so I'm going off to finish cooking my eggplant tongue.gif

August
Catherine
Hows that eggplant workin oot August? Ah smear mine wae some olive oil, sprinkle some garlic an sea salt then pepper it tae death....then slip oan the barbie fur five, vawaalla!! laugh.gif
Looks like thunders comin here, awfy dark ootside after a lovely day...apart fae the humidity...cripes dis nuthin fur ma herr this weather y'no!
Och jist noticed the time an aw...away tae get the Jakey boy fae school...be back soon...tra la la la la....
August26
Catherine:
I made 2 dozen eggplant rolitini, and a tray of eggplant parm, we had the rolitini for dinner tonight it was good, I must be part Italian ohmy.gif

August
Catherine
Ah never make it as a complete dish so tae speak, we huv it mare as part of the dinner...how dae ye make it an whit is it August ? laugh.gif
August26
OK Catherine, here we go...........................

3 eggplant (leave on counter to soften, maybe overnight)
2 lbs Ricotta cheese
2 lbs mozarella cheese( save half lb for eggplant parm)
grated romano cheese
garlic (either powder or the liquid )
Italian seasoning
basil
Tomato Sauce( or gravy as the Italians call it)

in large bowl grate mozarella (not fine), empty ricotta on top, add about 3 tbl romano, add 1tbl garlic, Italian seasoning, basil (these are estimates, I just throw so much in till it looks right, sorry)
mix real good, set in fridge,
in large pan (like a lasagne pan) cover bottom with sauce,
peel eggplant and slice thin for rolling, (you will cut off the curve on the sides and save) put a serving spoon size of mix on the wide side of the eggplant and roll, place on top of sauce, continue till all the large pieces have been rolled, pour more sauce on top,
bake 45 min 350 degrees farenheit

with leftover ends and any peices that you sliced too thin, in another pan, put a thin layer of sauce, top with the eggplant, sprinkle garlic powder, Italian seasoning, basil and the rest of the cheese, add sauce to cover, sprinkle with Romano cheese,
bake 45 min, 350 oven.

All of the above freeze great, when cool, I wrap in the white freezer wrap, for individual servings, then put in zip lock with the item name and date and freeze.

It's wonderful for those nights you dont feel like cooking both heat up great in microwave. biggrin.gif

Bon Apetit.

August

I have to tell you, Ria, Betty and Marion looked at it in my house and ate Lasagne, Joabyboaby was adventurious to try it, I can't remember if he liked it.
Catherine
August, sounds lovely...see when ye say leave them to soften overnight, wid that be fae buyin one that's hard or one that's near overipe..cos ah canne tell the difference wae eggplant laugh.gif
Let us know cos ah'll try that for sure.
August26
Catherine:
Try to purchase the eggplant on the soft side and long, not short, remember you have to roll them, also you don't tuck them in the sides like cabbage rolls, the ends are open, some of the cheese will melt out into the sauce, we have them over pasta, since we started the South Beach we only eat the whole grain pasta, delicious.

August
wee mags

Heather
Hi Wee Mags glad to hear your are feeling a bit better.

When you go to the Doctor make sure he gives you a lot of pain killers because when you have to pay for a new Crown the cost of it will make you beat your head off a wall. laugh.gif
August26
Where's Betty,
Geez hope she hasn't drowned, either in the pool or with all the rain you are having over there, she better get back on here.......soon, the Red Hat Society was in our town today, Bunty where are you aslo.

August
Heather
Yes where is Betty. When I came in here the other day the place was a mess, I think she had a party and did not tell us. Maybe she won the lottery and is away living the high life, she would not do that, would she????????????????. laugh.gif
August26
I bet she would, (win the lottery and not tell us) either that or she's sailing up on Cape Cod with Gem, "whale watching" so Heather, you folks will have to do the cleaning, I'll make the coffe and tea, you bring the empire biscuits. biggrin.gif

August
Melody
Naw she wouldnae dae that wid she? No withoot tellin' us first and........................ then she'd be like a woman possessed.
But ah'd spot her in Markies, oh naw she'd be in the Merchant City shopping then, in that Italian Centre before you could say 'The Broons' laugh.gif ...A'h miss her dae you?
August26
Melody:
When you were MIA we put out a separate thread on you and sure enough you turned up, healthy, smiling and singing, do you think Betty wants another thread for herself, is she that greedy? I think maybe we should wait a few days, send Heather over to her home, then take it from there.

August
Heather
Who do you two think I am, Jessica Fletcher!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wub.gif
August26
Sis:
In that case you better call Donald Bain also, since he is her co-author, his Grandfather, George Sutherland came from Scotland, and in their novels he is a Scotland Yard Detective, I'm on book 7, The Highland Murders.
You have to find Betty, I can't even call her sister Gem, she's too busy Whale Watching on Cape Cod, she should be Betty watching in Baillieston rolleyes.gif

August
Catherine
Och oor betty will be aff entertainin the masses..she'll be back...busy wummin so she is, swimmin, shoapin, dinin oot..she's a better social calendar than betty the 2nd laugh.gif


Moan betty, wherr ur ye, we miss ye pet.
August26
HMM! I just thought maybe she's in the flying machine headed for Loobyloo's party, I think the machine runs slow, so she would need to leave now, but then Heather and Melody would be able to answer that, our social butterfly,
Well this working butterfly is off to bed, it's very early in the morning.

August
Melody

August26
Melody:
Maybe her swim lessons were so good she's off swimming the Channel, or maybe you and Heather should get yourselves over to her home and check on her, or here's another thought, maybe she got married and is off on her honeymoon rolleyes.gif

Isobel
Hello Guys, thought I would pop in and let you know what has been going on.I have been looking after my sister who had surgery two weeks ago ,She has cancer, and has to get further surgery on Nov.2nd. Also her husband who had a hip replacement. However Not sure if I was missed, but I wont be around for some time. I leave on Monday for England. Some of you knew that my mother in law had a brain tumor. Jim and I were booked to go on the fifth of October .However things are moving very fast now. His mother was moved to a nursing home yesterday. It sounds more like a hospice to me. Anyway we decided to bring our trip forward. Don't know when I will be back. I will try and look in from the library from time to time. Don't forget me, and please say a wee prayer that we are able to handle all of this.Hope you all have a good time in Glasgow. You lucky fellow Andy, all these women to yourself. Well who know's Archie is known for his surprise trips. Maybe if there is enough in that wee tin you just might see him.
Marion Dougan
