Fourth kids are the best (no offense to kids one through three)

Today Matt took his toy/pet eggplant to school. After spending the day with his eggplant - Matt and his friends used it to play catch - he decided that he prefers his eggplant to getting a pet cat or dog.

No mess in the house or vet bills to contend with or allergies just a trip to the 'eggplant hospital' (aka the fruit store) every couple of days to 'visit' Rover's family and we get a nice ratatouille or baba ganoush with dinner. Healthy AND economical.

I can't wait until he starts teaching the eggplant to roll over.

A pet eggplant. Kids today.....

Also, another nice way to eat it is cut into slices, brush with olive oil and grill on the BBQ. Put a couple of spoonfuls of Tzatziki on the plate to dip it into. Yummy.

That sounds yummy, Moey. I think my kids would eat a hockey puck if I covered it in tzatziki. I'll try it.
