Purple Haze

Last night, for the first time ever, I attempted to cook eggplant. With mixed results. Not a disaster, but...I'll post more on that later, when I have the recipe in front of me.

For now, I'll just say that kittens really really REALLY like to bat baby eggplants across the kitchen floor.

    Of course kittens enjoy eggplant batting! It's all the rage in KUSL (kitten underground sporting league).

    Of course, soon as I posted I realized I hadn't shared my eggplant disaster story, and, really, I must share this.

    I was supposed to be making a dip. Things seemed to be doing well -- I roasted the purple beastie in the oven . . . it deflated like the directions said it would. Ok. But when it came to the blending part, it turned out the pitcher part of the blender decided that it was a good day not to want to come disengaged from the base. So, I rocked it back and forth. But then I went a bit to far and the base came unscrewed.

    I now had garlicy, eggplanty goo all over the base, the counter, and me. It got into every single aspect of the blender works, underneath it, in the vents, down the cord. My cries of outrage brought spectators who laughed. I was not amused.

    And the worst part? It tasted AWEFUL. Don't know if it was a mutant eggplant, if the garlic was bad, or if slumping down the sides of a blender is not good for dip taste, but it was a bitter disappointment.

    And yet I want to play with eggplant again. I think. No blenders will be allowed in the vicinity.

    I have a kitten and hardwood floors, which is an amusing combination.

    Oh yes, I love that combination -- our kittens often build up so much speed on the hardwood floors that they skid out when they try to round corners. Hilarious for the spectators!
