Spicy Thai Eggplant with Mint

Summer is here in all its glory. This is truly the time of bounty, the time where I spend all of my money on heirloom tomatoes, and hobble back from the farmer’s market with heavy bags of stone fruit, corn, and peppers. Me being a farmer’s market fiend (along with a veg fiend, but of course) adores ogling all the vibrant colors of the produce, and I also dig that everything is grown locally. When I am up at the stand making my choices, I can actually chit-chat with the farmer who grew these very same fruits and veggies! Crazy, right?! Sadly, it is pretty crazy in our day and age. But let’s keep the farmer’s market love going. Try to support your local farmers- whether by attending a market, or even just by shopping at the grocery store. I’ve noticed Wegman’s, Whole Foods, Stew Leonard’s, and Trader Joe’s have had local produce available, with signs detailing where the fruits and veggies are grown. Bravo 🙂 Hopefully, more grocery chains will start to incorporate locally …
