Last night we were on the road coming home from Utah. We stopped for the night in Bakersfield, CA, a large-ish agricultural town in Southern California. We had dinner at Macaroni Grill. Our server spent the hour or so we were there in their mostly empty restaurant trying to hurry us along. Could she put our order in yet? Look at the dessert menu when we were only part way through our dinner. Could she clear our plates? It was pretty annoying. I asked her if she got a bonus for getting people out of the restaurant fast.
Anyway, we both got eggplant Parmesan with angel hair pasta and it was very good. I do not make eggplant Parmesan at home because it is super messy to make. Having it out is a real treat. I forgot to take a picture but it looked something like this internet picture –
