what to do with an eggplant

Mr Pinkwater,

So, I grew a small crop of eggplants this summer because I enjoy watching them grow. Now I have to figure out how best to prepare them for eating. I remember you admire eggplants yourself. What is your go to eggplant dish?

Best wishes,

You want to EAT them? Eat an eggplant? I've always enjoyed them as pets. I suppose you could eat one if you wanted, but it seems a little cruel. And these are eggplants you've cultivated and known personally. Seems to me that would make you too sad. I suggest you forget all about it and maybe get a couple of lobsters.
