What to do with all that eggplant…

There’s a lot of eggplant around here and neither Alex nor I are huge fans of the purple plant. I think it’s pretty, but the texture and taste have just never been something that I crave. I decided if there was tons of it in the grocery store though, we better learn to like it!
I found this recipe online for eggplant and zucchini salad. It didn’t turn out quite as pretty as in the pictures, but it still tasted pretty good. To round the meal out, we also had chicken skewers and potato wedges. I marinated the chicken in a mixture of soy sauce, peanut butter, sesame oil and chili pepper.

We live in what is called “The Quad” which is basically an apartment complex that the school owns. All of the apartments are filled with other people we work with and there is a commons area on one side that has two gas grills. We chipped some money into a kitty that will cover the cost of gas and now we can use the grills whenever we like. Now that it has stopped raining as much, the weather is beautiful here so it was pretty sweet to be able to sit out by the grills and cook up some dinner!

  1. Hey,
    I moved to Quito a month ago and was googling “Quito blogs” and stumbled across your blog. Turns out I'm teaching at your old school! I'm teaching Humanities and my students have mentioned a Mr. Lopez more than once. It just dawned on me that it's probably the same Mr. Lopez on this blog! I enjoy reading about your adventures in Korea!


  2. Hi McKenzie,
    If you're teaching International Secondary at Americano then this is definitely the same Mr. Lopez! Hope your school year is off to a great start!
