I headed out to the grocery store early this morning to get the ingredients for Ratatouille for Movie Day lunch tomorrow. Inspired by the movie of the same name and having never cooked with eggplant before (can you believe that?), with list in hand, I shopped. Guess what? On January 24, 2011 in Central Illinois, there is not an eggplant to be had. The produce man at my local store said he'd been unable to get it for more than a week and doubted that anyone else would have it since most of them order from the same vendors. So, that recipe will have to wait for another day.
