Tonight's meal came courtesy of my mother-in-law. I was working late, trying to get my stuff in order since we will be away for the wedding all weekend long. Pasta is always a favourite with the kids, and a basic marinara sauce is meat-free anyway. You can add veggie ground round or TVP if you like, just like with the chili. No Frills had 6 eggplants for a buck on the clearance rack, so we also had breaded eggplant as well. Use the same breading technique as the chicken fried seitan, and fry in oil on each side until golden brown.
VERDICT: The pasta was a hit, and so was the eggplant until our eldest son found it that he was eating eggplant and began to protest on principle. Clean plates all around in the end.
We will be out of town for the wedding for the next few days, so no posts for a while. That would matter if someone was actually reading the blog on a regular basis. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
