John Barth advises “Regularity is as helpful with the muse as with the bowels.” In consideration of such advice, I offer up my recipe for Stuffed Eggplant.
1 lb. ground beef (you can substitute ground chicken or if you prefer a vegetarian stuffed eggplant, substitute portabella mushrooms)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 sweet onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, finely chopped
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
