That eggplant that's been lying around on my counter for several days now--I finally sliced it up and grilled it and made sandwiches for lunch today. I grilled the eggplant and some red onion, and then I assembled the sandwiches and grilled the whole thing like a panini.
Several days ago SusanV made a white bean pesto that she used to top pasta. I thought this would be yummy on my sandwiches, so I made up a batch. I hesitate to call this "pesto," since it really is more of a hummus consistency. But the yummy part is accurate! It has so much flavor, and it really made the sandwich kick!
So, between two slices of the bread that I made a couple of days ago (and which is almost gone), I layered a thick slathering of the pesto, grilled eggplant slices, grilled red onion, and tomato slices. A few minutes in the George Foreman, which I brushed with some olive oil, and lunch was served! Along with it, just a small salad with cucumber and mango. We finally finished of our abundance of mango this afternoon!
For dinner tonight: leftovers. Yes, there are plenty. Likely lunch and dinner tomorrow will be leftovers as well, especially since the hubby is working all day long. :( But I'll probably do something fun tomorrow in my kitchen--breakfast maybe? More bread? We'll just see...
