Dinner = Yum!

Made dinner for the coop tonight. I had an hour and a half to throw together a meal for 10 people. Not as many at home as usual since most everyone is going to see their families for Thanksgiving. I just threw stuff together and it actually worked:

Zesty Zuc:

1/8 - cup olive oil
3 - 8" x 1.5" Zucchinis
1 - lemon, juiced over Zucchini, sliced and cooked in the mix
1/2 - bundle green onions
2 - colorful bell peppers
1/2 - white onion

Mix in frying pan until flavors blend and Zucchini melts in your mouth. Serve as a side dish.

Elegant Eggplant Pasta Sauce:

1 - Globe Eggplant, diced
1/2 - bundle green onions
1/2 - white onion
1 - shallot
1 - small red onion
1 - colorful bell pepper
1 - industrial-size can of tomato paste (1 gallon? Maybe more.)
1 - cup water
7 - sprigs of fresh thyme & sage
1 - cup parmesan cheese, preferably in 1/4" chunks

Serve over whole wheat rotini pasta.

Delicious warm bread from a bakery on the side, and orange juice to drink made for a successful treat! Everyone was happy to have an unexpected, warm meal. Since it's Thanksgiving week, we have no official schedule for chores and meals. It worked out great, and I had fun cooking. Felt like I was racing against time, and working with only what I could find in the 'fridge. Craziness!
