Pasta Alle Melenzana August 10, 2011

Filed under: Dinner — Maria @ 6:45 pm

Tonight for dinner my mom made Antonia’s pasta alle melenzana (eggplant pasta) as seen on the Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network. It smells fantastic in our houses but I was a little nervous since I don’t normally care for eggplant. I will try anything once so I went for it and was delightfully surprised. I’m not sure why I never ate it in the pasta but I love it prepared this way. Today I had a busy day with running some errands with my grandpa then helping him rewire a light, making lunch for my family (and homemade cookies!), and then visiting with my friends new 5-day-old baby. He is absolutely gorgeous and tiny and amazing all at once.  I haven’t seen/held a baby that small in so long. I also ran over my grandparent’s next door neighbors and hung out with their 4 kids because I never met the youngest — a 3-month-old little girl. Today was a fabulous day full of family and babies and I loved it! Boyfriend in the morning :)
