The Eggplant Festival

Mar 24, 2020

When I was a child, we used to have big family dinners. In the summertime, we had the cookouts, and we used to have the cousins from Portland, Maine. Well, everybody knew we loved eggplant.

Trays and trays of stuffed eggplant.

And we’d have an eggplant festival with the cousins coming down from Maine. My Auntie Mary would make trays and trays of stuffed eggplant, and all the cousins would come down. They had a big backyard. Auntie Mary had a big backyard. It was really fun. Yeah, we did have a lot of fun.

My stuffed eggplant recipe, a family favorite.
