I know, I’m totally freaking out about this one, but for real, this stuff is amazing. I first made it some 3 or 4 years ago and since then, as soon as the weather reaches 70 degrees, I’m out there rollin’ up the eggplants and grillin’! You should never underestimate the power of a veggie… With bacon.

You wanna know what else is exciting?! My baby girl started to walk today, hands free! For the past 3 months she’s been holding onto furniture, walls, appliances… but today she finally let go! She’s so excited, and quite frankly, so am I!

And that’s my proud Mama moment. Had to share it with you! 🙂

Wait! I’m not done sharing! By the ways, her 1st Birthday is coming up on June 4th!

Okay, now I’m done.

    Oh YUM! I am a huge fan of eggplant, and grilling it must bring out some serious flavor. And even though I’m vegetarian, I do lust after bacon from time to time ๐Ÿ™‚
