Posting Recipes

I never thought to post the recipe for the eggplant, and decided while I was doing that I may as well post the recipe for the plum pie as well.

Stuffed Eggplant

2 med. sized eggplant washed and stalks removed

1/2 cup chopped ham (for those vegetarians out there this can be left out)

3 tbsp dried parsley

1 or 2 tomatoes peeled and chopped

1/4 cup dried bread crumbs

1/2 onion finely chopped or grated (I finely chopped mine)

2 1/2 cups grated cheddar (I used 1 1/2 cups and then used 1 cup of grated mozza over top)


freshly ground pepper

Cut the eggplant in half, lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, to leave a 1/4 inch shell.
Roughly chop the flesh.

Make the stuffing by combining the ham, parsely, tomato, bread crumbs, onion, seasonings, and 1 1/2 cups grated cheese.

Place the eggplant shells in a baking dish and fill with the stuffing mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Cover with foil.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and then uncover and cook for another 5 or 10 minutes or until crisp and golden.
Serve hot.

Now on to the Plum Pie

1 unbaked pie shell


11 plums, washed, pitted and quartered
1 well beaten egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

Mix all filling ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour into shell. I baked it at 350 for around 50 minutes until it was golden brown and bubbly.

Serve with ice cream.

Well off to visit all of you. Everyone have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Jackie,

    Thanks for the recipes. They sound delicious.

    How is your week going at school. Thanks for your comments about the boys' first day. I hope they both continue to enjoy school this year.


  2. Mary, school for the most part is going well. We had a slight problem today with one of the students who decided he did not have to work.

    Another had not gotten his homework done and suddenly got ill when he realized that the teacher really meant that she was going to write a warning in his agenda for his parents to see and sign. He ended up getting so worked up he called his dad to pick him up.

  3. I *love* eggplant!

    I asked Mary to send me your blog, since I managed to "leave" without it. I truly want to stay in touch with you, if only to read about what you are up to, and I hope so much that my misbehavior didn't cause you any grief, if you know what I mean. If I got you in trouble, I can't tell you how sorry I am. I only regret two things, and the possibility of that is one of them. The other was leaving without giving Barb my e-mail, but that is being taken care of if she wants it.

    Since you list Barb's blog, now I have hers also. I was going to ask someone to please send it to me.

    I told you I treasure you, and I do. I hope you still like me a little. : )


  4. Hey Kerry

    Nice to see you. Glad to keep up with you any way I can. Girl you are a stubborn one, but I love you any ways.
