In the past I have had chicken parmigiana and, despite enjoying most Italian foods, do not care for it.
I had an eggplant. A friend told me how much she and her family LOVE eggplant parmigiana. I made eggplant parmigiana, knowing full well that my kids would not eat it.
To his credit, Fritz tried it.
Mary liked it. She's too young to know better.
I tried it.
It tastes much like chicken parmigiana.
I do not care for it.
Why does this surprise me so much?
