Fun Emperor Penguin

Emperor Penguin

I love eggplant/aubergine. I didn’t always, in fact it’s only been the last 10 years I’ve been able to embrace it. The boys have slowly come round to eating it with pleasure and my lovely husband finally ate some and enjoyed it for the first time only 2 weeks ago – YES!!

Goes to prove that trying foods over and over again is important, even for us big folks and maybe using different methods of cooking something can be the key.

Here’s my much enjoyed fun food Emperor Penguin …
