Meal #2 – quesadillas

wash japanese eggplants. Peel in strips and place in soup pot until the base if covered, no more (if there is eggplant left over, it’s going in the stir fry). Add olive oil to the soup pot and brown the eggplant, turning as you go.
Mark up the pants, and pin them while you are standing around turning the eggplant.
put roasted tomatoes in a container in the fridge.
Microwave cooked leeks, chop up tomatoes, chop garlic, chop parsley, squeeze lemon into a teacup and mix in sugar and some water
fill eggplants, pour liquid over, close up pot, lower heat, and let cook for 45 minutes.
