Two Paws Way Up

Steve and I have what seems to be a strange assortment of vegetables coming out of the garden. Eggplant, potatoes and tomatoes. Wouldn't you know we found a recipe using all three.

Moussaka Cottage Pie!?

You might not be familiar with moussaka, but I'd describe it as a Greek shepherd pie with eggplant. I love the unique flavor of meat with cinnamon and cloves.

Steve and I modified the recipe a bit. We made our own mashed potatoes. We blanched our own tomatoes and chopped them instead of using crushed tomatoes. We grilled the sliced eggplant instead of cooking them with the broiler.

Steve and I loved it. We spilled a bit, so the kitties got to enjoy some too. They licked the floor clean, so I think they liked it too.

I loved seeing the kitties. They're getting really big. Must be all the home cooking!

Yes, thanks for showing the kitties. I can almost feel how soft they are and hear them purring over the unexpected treat!

Glad you're using those vegies from your garden. Sounds delish! I'll bet it was so fun to watch the kitties lap it up!
