First of all, I'm glad you, your hubby and the truck driver were uninjured. The eggplant dish sounds divine. Your description had me salivating. Yum!


What an enjoyable read. I got so caught up in the tale of your accident, I was almost taken aback when I got to the line that read, "And right about now you're probably thinking-so what does this have to do with eggplant?"

Yes, the eggplant! I'm learning to love it more and more as I age, and I'm old enough to admit I actually like it now. I do. I like eggplant! (My mother would be so happy.) Next time I buy some, I will remember your story and give this recipe a try. It sounds delicious. I'm glad to have discovered your blog through Lydia at the Perfect Pantry. I'm looking forward to reading more about your experiences in Argentina, and all about the food as well!

This was a great read! Argentina is a beautiful country that has been on our list to go to for so long. Now you really make us want to jump on a plant and go!
BTW- we answered your 5 fact questions already. Check it out!

Laura- you said it! Luckily, I'll get to explore all the tasty treats Argentina has to offer without the accident! Thanks for checking out my blog!

Lydia-thanks as always for your support!

Ted-thank you, what a lovely compliment! My name and bio are on my about page, but my name is Rebecca. Thanks for the visit!

Jessica-Ha! Yes, explaining that to my mom would have been tough-hope your friend likes the recipe!

Astra Libris-thank you! So glad you enjoy what you are reading. I'm so grateful I have gotten such a fantastic response!

Your story is absolutely amazing... As is the recipe... and as is your blog! I'm so glad I discovered your incredible posts!

Food memories are so much fun -- especially if they actully end up with really lovely (and re-creatable) recipe instead of wierd things that none of your freinds or family would ever eat. (Peanut butter and bacon sandwiches anyone?) I never realized vultures were such bad navigators - thank goodness you all survived - imagine what your mother would have said if she also had to add "accident caused by a vulture" to your demise! I can't wait to try this recipe out on my pal Lucia who is an eggplant-o-phile! Good luck with the blog. I'm looking forward to reading more. (I'm a Ninecooks gal too.)

Hi ___?

What a thrilling story with a great food ending! Fun reading. It made me think of Carlos Sorin's Historias Minimas: the long, lonely roads of Argentina, drinking Mate and tiny towns were so vividly brought to life.

Congratulations. One question, though. On this whole page, I couldn't find your name.


What a wonderful story! If only all truck drivers were so considerate, and if only all of their wives were such good cooks!

Nothing like death staring you in the face to make you wake up and smell the roses ( or taste the eggplant) like never before! Sounds like a delectable edible no matter what the circumstance.
Found you through The Perfect Pantry!
