Dinner Tonight: Veggies Galore

I have an abundance of veggies that I need to get busy on!
None of this 'goes' together, it's a pretty haphazard menu but I'm single so I can do what I want.

On the menu:
Zucchini Oven Chips from Cooking Light, Marinated Eggplant with Mint, and lemon-garlic green beans.

True to form, I did make some subs with the eggplant. I only had a tiny bit of mint, thanks to an overeager lawn guy. So, I used it and some basil from a pot on my front porch. I also didn't have red wine vinegar, but did use some California Fig Balsamic.

All was good. Not sure I'd repeat the eggplant or zucchini though. I'm new to eggplant and I think I have a texture problem with it. The zucchini was fine, but didn't wow me.

The green beans were good, and this is my standard way of making them. They are a recent acquisition to my cooking repertoire. I used to not touch them; now I love them.

That's all for now.

This sentence made me laugh out loud--I love my girls but oh, would it be nice to cook whatever I want all the time. :)
