Well, folks, this is it.  Its my official last day of maternity leave.  I'll leave some thoughts this weekend about where I'm at and about my return to work, but I really have super important things to do today.  Like snuggles with my man.  And game playing.  And going for a jog in the jogging stroller.  And snuggles.  Times a million.  So I know you'll understand that I don't have time to blog.  Or clean.  Or cook.  No problem - crockpot to the rescue again!

Fall Harvest Caponata

1 large eggplant, diced
5 tomatoes, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 bulb garlic, peeled and minced
1 red pepper, diced
1 tbsp each black pepper and salt

Saute onion and garlic in a saucepan with olive oil until soft (about 5 minutes). Add salt to eggplant and let set for 15 minutes to draw out moisture.  Add everything to the crockpot and simmer on low for 6-8 hours.  Super simple, that's it!  Serve over rice or a nice hunk of french bread (as I did).  Yummy meal.  Barely any prep.  Freezeable leftovers (this serves 4-6). 
And that leaves.... time with my little man.
Which is obviously most important :-)

  1. ZOMG EGGPLANT IS MY FAVORITE. This looks delicious with amazing flavors.

    I make a dip that is basically these vegetables roasted and pureed with tomato paste. YUM.
