garden to table yum recipe-edited version

my wife she just texted me from bed as she woke up to read my blog
you got it wrong she said
heres the correct recipe i use
below i have edited it all to be correct according to my wife she

with the internet now you can find websites or apps where you can just type in what veggies you have and push enter and find several recipes using the produce

there are two plants that i grow that we tend to have more than we an eat or use
okra and eggplant

for the eggplant
we fry them
we use them in our grilled veggies we do
my wife she has an eggplant dip that is real yummy good
every time she makes that dip i think of our friend who ate so much of it that they puked on our kitchen floor
ok so she also had too much wine
no it wasnt my wife she

so right now we have bunches of tomatoes like tons of them as we are at the peak of the tomato production in the garden
my eggplants just started to produce
i have a few onions which this year werent as productive as what ive had in texas
please note the nt on the sentence it stands for not which means no
we have garlic
we had swiss chard but it started wavering and looking puny so it was removed

so as we looked at all those tomatoes
i said to my wife she
why dont you cook that eggplant tomato recipe one
you know the one that i didnt think would taste very good a few years back
now is one of my favorite recipes

mixing tomatoes and eggplant and swiss chard together
well it doesnt sound like it would be good
it to me doesnt even look good

my wife she
cooked it anyway a few years ago
she didnt pay attention to my whining

she cooked it
i ate all of it
i even scrapped the dish well to get all of it
ok so i lifted the pan and licked it all off like a dog if you set it in front of him
i ate it all
its good
one of my favs

here is the ingredients
she got it from an old cookbook from the mid 1980s from the junior league of little rock when i was in medical school and residency there

tomatoes whole and cherry tomatoes
mozzarella chunk cheese
parmesan cheese
salt pepper italian spices
our fresh basil from our front porch
bread crumbs
she adds garlic
swiss chard

some how she mixes it all up
puts it in the oven
takes it out
i eat it
almost all of it by myself

yummy recipe

its sort of like a  eggplant parmigiana but adding the swiss chard makes the flavor different but better

here is the original recipe to which she adds swiss chard
the messy page is from cooking this recipe a lot
its the bitterness of the swiss chard and the eggplant mixed with the acid and sweetness of the tomatoes with hte flavors of the cheeses that when all mixed together leaves this taste in your mouth that makes you want more of this stuff
