Roasted Eggplant Bruschetta Recipe
Roasted Eggplant Bruschetta appetizerI can’t believe it is just two weeks until Thanksgiving! Where does the time go? I swear school just started yesterday. The two months following Halloween are my favorites though. My two favorite holidays, Christmas and Thanksgiving, and my birthday, which this year falls on the day before Thanksgiving.

I really lucked out having a birthday so close to Thanksgiving. It means that most years I get to celebrate my birthday with a large number of family members. I’m turning 35 this year. I’m not at all squeamish about sharing my age. I rejoice over spending 35 glorious, adventure-filled years on this earth. I hope to spend another exciting 35+ years.

One of the many reasons I love this time of year so much is the food. I LOVE good food! Eating should be an adventure for the taste buds. This Roasted Eggplant Bruschetta is just such an adventure for the taste buds. If you’re looking for a gluten-free option, you can simply leave off the bread crumbs.
