Calvin, eggplant is good for you!
Everybody’s a critic!
Who needs a sign??
We don’t cook this, but it doesn’t sound so bad! Yesterday I buyed fryed chicken in a restaurant, it was just rotting, horrible, I could only throw it into the wastepaper basket and my stomach turned seeing this!!
SNERK!! LOL!! I feel your pain, Calvin.
Preparation:Butter a 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Heat oven to 350°.
Steam the diced eggplant just until tender, about 5 minutes.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and saute, stirring, until onion is tender. Add the garlic and saute for about 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
Spread bread slices with the butter and cut into cubes. Stir the eggplant and bread cubes into the onion mixture. Let the mixture cool slightly. Stir in the beaten eggs, salt, pepper, thyme, and marjoram. Stir in half of the shredded cheese. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish and cover with the remaining cheese.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve hot.
Like father, like son.
What gave it away, Dear?
I can understand – I hate eggplant in any form.
I love his snowmen and sculptures.
Looks like Dad agrees with Calvin on this one ;)
Most people just don’t know how to prepare eggplant. Baked long and slow in a sauce, it’s delicious. Breaded and fried and served justlikethat on a plate, it’s gross. I don’t go in for all the salting and pressing…just make sure it’s thoroughly cooked.
eggplant parmesan is good.
Those snowmen give my reaction to (overcooked) asparagus. Happily my batting average at being served (or making myself) asparagus I like has vastly improved these past few years.
This is where Calvin’s Stupendous Man costume comes in — IF Mom would let him wear it at the table (forget it!).
@Gator007: English is not a first language for everyone on this site. LX013 is Austrian, and she does very well with English.
Yesterday’s Sunday strip still hasn’t appeared. I posted it near the end of Saturday’s comments.
Today’s strip could be called a Bill Watterson snowman gag.
You are totally weird!! I have had it both ways and baked it tastes like baked shoe sole. Only way is dipped in egg, coated in flour and fried to a golden brown. It isn’’t sirloin steak but it beats tuna fish cassarole. Nice work on the snowmen, Calvin!
I like how it’s prepared in Chinese restaurants.
The snowmen have the right idea.
Calvin’s a genius for making those snowmen.
Recipe for eggplant: 1. Take one eggplant. 2. Throw it in the trash.
These snowmen defy gravity. Look at the one farthest right. You try leaning heavy balls of snow that way without them toppling! And funny how there’s never any less snow on the ground! Calvin clearly has mad skills.
Your English is just fine LX013
yeah, I will pass on eggplant anything…I am a meat and potatoes kind of guy…maybe a little red beans and rices with sausage in it…
IMO, the ONLY good dish made with eggplant (edit: you need small “Indian eggplant” for this one) is “Guti Vankhaya” (and it must be coastal version, not Telenganese). Not even my wife (who loves Indian eggplants in many more dishes) likes the large “American” ones — which are the only ones Calvin’s mum will even know at all.
I’ve always wondered how Calvin can make his snowmen so detailed. I can even make mine more than 2 feet tall.
I wonder why too
calvin is cool.i remember when i was a kid.if i came home from school and smelled liver and onions cooking,my brother and i hated liver so we were going to have cube steak and mom made extra cube for dads lunch the next day…i wish i could go back!
I Love Calvin! I love the snowmen. Nice to have a bit of warning so you can prepare yourself and don’t make the yukky face when you hear what’s for dinner. Why does Mom keep making that vile dish?
What happened to the Sunday strip??
Calvin and Pit (From Kid Icaurs) Should be video taped during this meal.
What happened to Calvin for 01/20/2013? (Sunday)
It’s the only thing Calvin doesn’t like… NOT!
I’m not sure if I’ve ever had eggplant. It’s one of those things I’m scared to try, based on past experience with that type of vegetable (the ones that are supposed to be good for you).
When I was a kid, I’d only eat my veggies raw, still prefer a lot of them that way.
We grill them on the BBQ, mash them, make babaganoush (spell check, anyone?) … better than hummus. (And me likes me some hummus! – grammar check, anyone?
Sunday’s strip has been posted. Snowball forts, ahoy!
This is EXCELLENT!
I love the 2nd snowman’s expression.
Eggplant fried in a little bit of butter until golden brown I like. Tuna cassarole I can make, but what goes into eggplant cassarole?
Everything in the refrigerator leftover from the past week or two that hasn’t been eaten yet perhaps?!?
I don’t blame Calvin; I hate eggplant.
An irony is that today was scheduled an event to which I stated eggplant-casserole would be preferable; uncanny that they would print this cartoon the same day! :-)
I agree, I hate eggplant too.
My m-in-l used to make a wonderful eggplant dip that everyone enjoyed. Baked the eggplant first and then mashed it with all the ingredients she used.
Oh, to be able to make such snow creatures.
The ‘Ol Man is on the same wave length as Calvin when it comes to mom’s cooking
An old eggplant is bitter and would turn anyone off. I ruined a batch of ratatouli with one, and still don’t know how to check in advance if it is a good one.
Actually eggplant is very tasty if prepared properly. The recipe opuscroakus70 posted is similar toone of mine, but I add a can of diced tomatoes as well.
such imaginative snowmen!
Looks like the Snow Goons don’t like eggplant, either. The horror!
@G-MomThanks for your encouraging words to our non-native English speakers. I second every bit.
Dad knows Calvin pretty good,to be able to tell its egg plant ,with all the things Calvin does not like.I buyed that.Of all the silly things I have heard correcting a friend over that gets a 0 in my book.
No Calvin in this one.
My all time fav C&H
i love eggplant
