Our First Nasubi

So...this may seem like a joke to all of the experienced gardeners out there. But for a couple of people living in Suburbia, Southern California, growing edibles in the patio is a big deal. Especially if you live in a condo. Here is the very first Japanese eggplant (nasubi) we harvested today.

And here is what we did with it! (see center bowl.) I cooked up a Japanese-style eggplant and meat (substituting ground pork with ground turkey). The dish was accompanied by wild sock-eyed salmon, rice, salad and yummy Castoro Cellar's 2003 Venti Due Anni Cabernet Sauvignon.
