I have not updated in a long time and there are quite a few recipe that I have waiting to be uploaded….but don’t worry, they will all be put on here soon enough! I went shopping at Sprouts the other day and I didn’t know what I wanted to make for my dinners for the week. I just randomly grabbed things here and there and I ended up with rainbow trout and an eggplant. I thought about a recipe my friend had told me about for eggplant and I knew that was what I was going to make. I got the recipe off of her website http://foodtwentyfourseven.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2012-04-09T21:28:00-07:00&max-results=7 and started to get to work. They were awesome and I could eat them every day! The inside gets very light and is the perfect complement for the crispy outside! As for the rainbow trout, I just used what I had laying around in my kitchen and threw some ingredients together….it all came together nicely.
