So I’ve busy eating steaks, ramens, chips dipped in sour cream, crackers and hummus, and the most delicious blueberry chocolates in the world– like you would never have imagined– behind this post. This Grilled Eggplant is, sort of, my way of balancing things out.

My sis and the kids has been having all these eating out and movie nights like crazy. The movie nights come with movie snacks galore of course!, — including butong pakwan {watermelon seeds} which the kids are so crazy about.

It has become reeeaaally hard for me to say no to all those munchies. Nobody’s perfect and I do accept the fact that there are times that the mind and the spirit is both too weak to ignore the call of chocolates…

…because they taste absolutely heavenly..

..and they make us happy..

So as much as possible I make myself beautiful, nutritious, delicious, and healthy food to help keep myself on track. I still have 20lbs to go, you know.

On other news, Ykaie has been loving some grown-up crime-drama movie. She is crazy about Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and could watch it three times a day. So I’m downloading the two Charlie’s Angels movies. I think she’s going to love it because it’s a lighter movie and the leads are three beautiful women. Of course, I’ll be watching with her so I can explain the things that needs explanation.

Alright, now that you know what will go on my Sunday, let’s talk about the sandwich….

This sandwich has all things delicious in it so don’t go and look for meat in it cause you’re not gonna find one. It’s all cheese, tomato, grilled eggplant, bread, and basil pesto.

I used a non-stick grill pan, which I brushed with Olive Oil, to grill the eggplants. I think it’s sooo pretty with grill marks to boast of. You can also roast the eggplant in the oven along with the sliced tomato, if you’re not fond of fresh ones, but it wouldn’t have those beautiful grill marks.

Then just layer everything on top of your bread –resulting in a sandwich that is packed with flavors and roast-y goodness.

  2. How fresh and delicious! I love your eggplant and tomato open face sandwiches a lot. Can’t wait to make some.

  3. I love eggplants and wish my family did as this looks like a perfect laid back summer sandwich. What are butong pakwan? Can you share the recipe?

  4. I never thought that eggplants can be used in sandwiches. I’m so used to seeing tomatoes and lettuce in sandwiches, but not eggplants. Seeing your grilled eggplant now with cheese, tomatoes and basil pesto makes me want to prepare one myself. Yummy! –Tetcha
