We've fed Violet some rice cereal a few times now, but last night was the first time she ate some "real" food: eggplant!

Why eggplant? Because Sue and I don't much like eggplant. Yet we keep getting eggplant in our CSA share every week. We've tried to work with it, and we've discovered some eggplant recipes that aren't so bad, but now we're just finished. We've had our fill of eggplant this year already. So I decided to steam and puree one of them to see if Violet liked it.

She didn't hate it. She made a weird face at the first spoonful, but swallowed it all. And swallowed most of the next six or seven spoonfuls (making much less of a mess than she did with the rice cereal). But then I could tell she had her fill of eggplant, too. I can't really blame her. Poor girl...

May as well give it to us. We're still getting eggplant, and Violet can't eat it all!

I don't blame her either!

Oh man. You're lucky if she doesn't give up on solid foods all together after the egg plant.

On the other hand, it gives me an idea of what to do with my eggplant....too bad Helen is already asleep.

She is soooo cute! Too bad I didn't get to see much of her at Reunions, but there is always next year :)
And, gee, am I the only person who likes eggplant?! Eggplant Parm was my favorite from Hoagie Haven as well as for my best friend from home when she tried it at my gradation. From then on she would actually have me bring one back for her whenever I'd come to visit...and didn't care that it would go through a 4 hour car ride! Yes, me and my friends are weird, but we already knew that ;)
