Deck to Table

This was our first year of planting vegetables on our deck. We have had herbs and tomato plants, but this year I attempted green beans and white eggplant. It was fun making the trellis for the beans and then watching and waiting and waiting... I was envisioning more beans to be picked but I was pleased to be picking anything.

Today I harvested the eggplant. We got 3 from the one plant. Very exciting! I sauteed them along with the green beans in some olive oil. I added a little marinara sauce that I made this afternoon. Seasoned the pan with salt, pepper, parsley and basil. I added a little white wine to the pan. Covered and simmered for about 10 minutes.
They were the most delicious eggplant and green beans ever!!!

We had Meatloaf as a side dish!
