Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire

If you follow me on twitter, you may have witnessed a minor emergency Tuesday night.

The adventure occurred at Mark/Jen’s – breadcrumbs in the broiler set aflame!


Still, the eggplant parmesan that Mark made (Mario Batali’s recipe) turned out excellent, thanks to a homemade sauce, lots of cheese…




…and patience.




With angel hair pasta + salad, it was the perfect meal worth fighting a fire for.

    I’ve actually always been afraid of that happening and thought I was just paranoid- I guess not! I’m glad that you (and that dish!) survived!
    Eggplant parmesan was one of my favorite meals growing up but I’ve never attempted it in the 4 years I’ve lived on my own. I’ll definitely need to change that!

    I hope you’re having an amazing new year so far! xoxo

    This looks delicious. This is convincing me that I should attempt a GF version soon.

      It was pretty great without the burnt breadcrumbs!
