I went to the farmer’s market at Union Square in NYC yesterday and saw these eggplants. I was struck by their unusual color. I have never eaten anything that shade of purple, although I believe I have a blouse that color which I never have the proper attitude to wear.
Although it occurred to me that these alleged vegetables might actually be pods containing aliens who would pop out at night and take over Manhattan, I bought one and took it home. This morning, it was still intact, so either the alien is biding his time or I actually purchased something edible.
I will try to cook it later. Eggplant burgers, I think. If you don’t hear from me for a while, assume that my alien theory was correct and please notify the authorities.
