Oh this sounds so good but my husband does not like eggplant, lol.
This reminds of a funny story when he was in the Marines..he was in
the chow line and he spotted what he thought was potatoe patties, so
he picked up a couple of them, well, it turned out to be eggplant patties!
He nearly gagged on them so he tried to hide them in the napkins but no
such luck, the Sargent saw him doing that, so he said.....what the ##*+&%^ are you doing with them eggplant patties, boy??...Mike said..oh uhhhh
i dont like them...the Sargent said, well that is just too blank blank bad, you
chose them so you have to eat them!! oh poooor Mike had to eat the
whole 2 pieces of eggplant patties!! LOL!
