RE: egg plant parmagian

Hi Tony,

I'd love to have this eggplant recipe also - would you be so kind as to post
it here when you get to it?  And yes, that's a great picture of you!  It is
nice to be able to put a face with the person.

I'm only about 6 months behind now - I know I promised someone a pumpkin
recipe or two (remember back when that was our recipe topic?) and I just got
around to pulling out my pumpkin cookbook, which I got at Mystic Seaport in
CT probably 15+ years ago, in case anyone is wondering where a cookbook
devoted to pumpkins might come from.  Anyone looking ahead that far and want
any?  See, I'm not really late, I'm way early (that'll be the day).

Finally sent in my order to Musser Forest for a bunch of shrubs.  Have not
ordered from them before so this'll be interesting, and some are bareroot
and some potted so that will also be a contrast.

And I have some crocus up and blooming - what a quick turnaround from being
buried under all that snow as recently as last Friday (still have a couple
small piles but they are on their way out).
