So out I go to the vegetable market, I was going anyway as I was getting stuff for Nonna, which is what put eggplant parmesan in my head to start with. So I pick up everything, get home, start cooking. Okay, while I will say that it may not be the toughest thing to cook, it is very time consuming. So he gets home and I take it out of the oven.
“What’s that?” he points at the eggplant.
“That’s not eggplant”
“Yes it is”
“No, it’s not.”
“Yes it fucking is.”
So he explains slowly, like he is talking to a moron. “No, eggplant is the long skinny vegetable that looks a bit like a cucumber.”
“No, that would be a zucchini. Eggplant is a big purple thing.”
“Oh, okay. Then I don’t like eggplant.”
“And that is when the gun just went off officer”
Anyway, we ate, he picked around the fucking eggplant, ate the pasta anyway, and the garlic bread. After dinner he says, “Sorry about the eggplant thing.”
