My girls spent a weekend in Boston and discovered Haymarket Open Air Vendor's Market. This is where vendors sell ripe produce for cheap prices. It is known to locals as a supermarket surplus for produce, where you have to be selective, but you can get great produce at low prices. The girls were thrilled and came back with fresh berries and fruit.
I sliced up the big-ass eggplant into many slices, then floured, egged and breaded each piece.
