    Sunnyside, I agree about the mess created by making gnocchi, so when I make it, I make a lot!

    Tonight is a Chinese chicken and broccoli stir fry with a sweet-spicy sauce and rice on the side.

    Tonight it's Johnsonville turkey sausages on the grill (from HT BOGO and coupon deal a couple months ago), tomato and cucumber salad (fresh tomatoes from garden and cukes from farmers market), and sauteed mushrooms, onions and squash.

    Faye, the eggplant lasagna turned out great! I sautéed the eggplant slices in the same skillet I used to sautee onions, garlic and bell peppers for the lasagna, so it was very flavorful. I used approximately 1 1/2 jars of spaghetti sauce. I didn't have ricotta cheese so I used a block of cream cheese I previously purchased on sale at Lowe's Food during their Kraft promotion, and I blended it with egg, parmesan and mozzarella cheese. I placed the eggplant slices as I would typically layer lasagna pasta . By the way, an eggplant cooking tip I've learned recently: After first slicing the eggplant, I salted the slices and let them sit for about an hour to "sweat" out the typical bitterness. I then washed off them off before sautéing them.

    Gator Girll - that sounds really good! I have a turkey breast in the freezer that I need to cook so that may be next week with gravy and green beans.

    Karen - how was the eggplant lasagna??

    sarahoconnor - Congratulations on making AND sticking to your meal plan! Well done!

    I'm preparing lasagna using sauce and cheese I previously purchased on sale at Harris Teeter, as well as cooked eggplant slices in place of pasta. I'm out of lasagna pasta and I recently heard eggplant can be used in place of pasta in lasagna dishes. I have an eggplant (from a local produce delivery service subscription) so I'll give it a try.
