BTW, I live near Napa and and did not know this tip...so here it is...if you are going to pick a wine and want a sure fire winner, pick one from the Napa or Alexander Valley. Now don't get all wine snobby on me. YES, there are wines from the Central Coast of California, Australia, France and the like that are good, but honestly, the grapes grown in Napa are incredible. I think this is about as sure fire as you can get as tips go. They are pricier, but they are so much better. Here are some tips;
Patz and Hall
among 100's of others.
Anyway, how did I get here? Oh yeah... eggplant parmesean and wine. Mmmmm good. A little bread some salad out of your garden and your set. I think you could hide a shoe under this and I would ask for seconds.
I planted some eggplant this season and it has gone ape. I planted Dusky and Rosa Bianca. The Dusky is the standard eggplant used worldwide, the Rosa Bianca a lesser known type, but way better. It is the Ferrari of eggplants, whereas the Dusky is the F150....
My suggestion to you is to grab a bottle of the aforementioned, everything in moderation please... too much vino will make you Micky The Dunce quickly. Plant some of these - description to follow:
Rosa Bianca Eggplant
A gorgeous Italian variety with a delicate, mild flavor, creamy consistency, and no bitterness. Considered one of the best by gourmets and gardeners alike. 4-6 in. long, 4-5 in. diameter.
Make some eggplant parmesean and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Better than dropp'in a Ben at Whole Paycheck and watching hard earned jing go from your Dockers to their cash registers.

I am sure most of you have known or heard this...if not you've been living in a cave.
Honey is composed of sugars like glucose and fructose and minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate.
It contains vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3 all of which change according to the qualities of the nectar and pollen. Besides the above, copper, iodine, and zinc exist in it in small quantities. Several kinds of hormones are also present in it. Approximately one half of the human diet is derived directly or indirectly from crops pollinated by bees. Today honeybees are an essential part of a healthy agriculture economy.
If you have allergies, honey can be beneficial. If you eat honey that is local to your area, it may help prevent your seasonal allergies. Bees use the pollen from local plants and eventually it ends up in your honey.
Honey may also be good for your skin. It has the ability to attract water. It is also safe for sensitive skin. You can use it as a moisturizing mask for your skin as well as your hair. To use it as a conditioner, mix the honey with olive oil. Be sure to wash your hair thoroughly before you go outside.
If you have a sore throat, take some honey.[ Honey has powerful antimicrobial properties, which can soothe your raw tissues. Pour a teaspoon of honey into a large serving spoon and then top off the spoon with lemon juice. Swallow the concoction (without water) every few hours until symptoms clear up. Some people add a pinch of black or red pepper to increase blood circulation to the throat.] Due to its natural anti-inflammatory effect, it will help to heal the wounds more quickly.It also has different phytochemicals--chemicals found in plants and different foods--that kill viruses, bacteria, and fungus making it a good substitute for wound dressings. The taste may also take your mind off the pain. There is evidence that honey diluted in water will help with your stomach aches and dehydration.
Do you have a cut? Honey is a natural antiseptic. Medical journals cite more than 600 cases in which honey was employed to treat wounds.By applying honey to your wounds, you prevent infections. Honey contains antimicrobial agents, which prevents infections by killing the bacteria in and around your wounds. When using honey it may help to heat it up before putting it on your wound (caution test the heat before you place it on the wound).Many types of bacteria can’t survive in honey, so wounds heal, swelling eases, and tissue can grow back.
Honey may also be effective in the treatment of your ulcers.In Europe, honey has been used internally to help cure ulcers, particularly stomach ulcers. Burns, too, heal better with honey, studies show. The advantage of honey is that it not only prevents infections from occurring, it actually accelerates skin healing.. Since the sugar in honey absorbs water it helps to trap some of the moisture so that the bacteria and other microbes can’t grow as easily as in other food.
I am walking out to the kitchen, plopping a tablespoon into the honey, adding some Sumatra Cinnamon and pigging out. Who's with me!!!!?
