tis the season for me to be a slacker... and a slacker is what i've been. i've actually made a few dishes here and there, but they haven't quite been up to snuff and therefore, the long delay between posts. finally, i feel somewhat comfortable in posting this as it took a few iterations for me to get it right, but it's at a place that i feel like i can share this. jenn hoyt, here's a veggie dish finally!

2 eggplants, peeled and sliced
italian breadcrumbs
2 eggs
1 tbsp white horseradish
balsamic vinegar
4 garlic cloves, minced
yellow pepper, sliced
green pepper, sliced
4 green onions, sliced
black peppercorn
