Recipe

I think I have officially only checked off one item on my to do list, but have added at least ten. At this rate the next couple of days will likely be a bit crazy, but that’s ok and kind of expected in a good way at this time of year. Knowing the importance of refueling between errands, one thing I do every year is have something warm and comforting in the crock pot that I can eat in a minute’s notice. This year it’s this delicious eggplant bolognese that you can quickly toss with some pasta, spread on a sandwich of roasted veggies, or toss on rice for a meal in minutes. It can be made with ground beef, ground turkey, or even beef stew meat; and can also be made vegetarian by replacing the meat with about 1 pound of chopped zucchini or mushrooms. It freezes great and is one of those recipes that tastes even better the next day.

For the eggplant you can leave the skin on of off depending on your preference. Then just roughly chop it into 1 inch pieces.
