Yummy Eggplant Dip

I ran into one of my former ES students at the farmer's market and she told me about an eggplant dip she made that sounded great. I just happened to have some local eggplant in my fridge and needed to do something. So here is my twist on her recipe and it's fabulous!!!
  1. Chunk up eggplant, red onion, red pepper, and yellow pepper and distribute on baking sheet
  2. Add chopped garlic, red pepper flakes, and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Roast.
  4. Blend up in food processor with two handfuls of tomatoes from garden. Add some garam masala (Indian spice mix).
  5. Eat with pita, baked tortilla chips, or spread on a tortilla.
  6. YUM!!!
I am so happy that it is Friday. This week ended up well and I had an enjoyable workout at the gym late today. Sweated like crazy on the bike for 30 minutes then did chest and back. I discovered that by wearing a tennis elbow band and by using my lifting straps from year ago, I could take the pressure off my elbow and get more done. It was very satisfying.

Off to the homecoming game tomorrow. Yeah! I am so excited!!
