They tasted great after I grilled them. Sweet and tender.
In case you're wondering: you grill some eggplant, onion, red pepper, all sprayed with oil so they don't stick to the grill. On a wrap you slather on some spicy brown mustard, sprinkle some minced garlic, add a little italian herbs and spices, pinch of salt, dash of pepper, some extra garlic powder (if desired), some tomato (I left off the tomato tonight), and some pickle chips (which I tried for the first time in the wrap and they tasted great, but pat them dry before adding them). You may want to add some shredded cheddar, but I didn't. I got this recipe several years back on some recipe website, and just embellished it with my own tastes.
Unfortunately, we have been having a heat wave here and the berry plants are starting to wilt. This means though we have bountiful berries, some of which haven't even opened yet, we may not get the full harvest unless we get some rain soon.
As I was driving today I noticed that a lot of the trees are starting to get brown leaves, as if it were autumn already. You would think that it was early fall by looking at some of the trees, and yet it is unbearably hot.
