skirt steak and fried italian eggplant

My oven is full of baking cakes so I couldn't make oven roasted red bliss and creamer potatoes like I'd planned. I'm still happy cause fried eggplant is delicious.

Too tired to make another pseudo succotash tonight, so perhaps tomorrow I will see if I can conquer okra and not make it slimy (never cooked it before).

Steak was simple coat in grapeseed oil, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders with a pat of butter at the end.

eggplant was cut, left to dry in paper towels, corn starched, egg washed then floured and panko'd.
