I really think I should get extra credit this week since I originally
made the Beatrix's red kuri soup before I found out the recipes were switched.
However, since both of these recipes were good, I will stop
complaining. I'll just be that much ahead when the kuri soup comes up.
The eggplant tartine was really fun to make and I loved all the
ingredients that went into the "salsa" . Perhaps the eggplant I bought was
a little too small because when I made the salsa I seemed to have too
much for only six small slices. But, that said, this combination goes
great with crackers or chips.
The roasted slices of eggplant were very tasty even without a topping.
All in all, hubby and I both agreed that this was a wonderful recipe,
and I think it would be a great starter to any meal.

Once again I came up short and will post the tartine hopefully this week-
but am sharing a few photos of the wonderful treats we enjoyed while
dropping the kids in Boston. Amidst packing and unpacking we enjoyed
Hot Chocolate at the famous "Burdicks" chocolate shoppe in their Cambridge
location. Just outside of Harvard's steps, it was the perfect setting.
We lucked out at hit the famous Mike's Pastry in the North End when it was
not too busy. Which is basically a miracle. We had heard about their
"florentine cannoli" and it did not disappoint. I think each cannoli
weighed about 5 pounds (kidding) but the shell was to die for. Amazing.
We also had an amazing brunch in Beacon Hill at the Paramount.
I can't remember the last time I waited in line so long for anything,
but the caramel, banana French Toast was ultimately well worth it.
Can't wait till Parent's weekend
for some more.......
