* today was "Community Trash Day" wherein the citizens take to their yards and dump out all that crap from their basements and garages that are too big for the regular garbage service -- dishwashers, old TV's, tables, and all the giant branches that fell from winter -- and put them out by the curb. We contributed two pick-up truck loads full of broken dehumidifiers, sump pumps and our broken swing from down by the lake. By the time we came back with the second load, half of the first load was already gone! Scrap metal guys cruise around the neighborhood looking for anything they can salvage before the city gets to it...
Anyway -- that was half the day, and we were exhausted -- so that means comfort food for dinner. The eggplant was especially tasty and spicy...
