Tomato marinated Aubergines topped with Mozzarella

Hello and how is everyone?  I hope the week has started off well for everyone 🙂 I have been busy these past few days, I have been trying to catch up on some courses and reading all of your posts and trying to respond to all the lovely comments I have received but I am still behind.  I am also trying to pack because we will be leaving in about a week’s time for a small vacation, heading back to Greece to visit family.   

I will continue posting while I am away but I won’t be posting any of my homemade dishes but I will be posting other delicious Greek dishes 🙂   With that being said here is a delicious appetiser filled with Aubergines, Tomatoes and Cheeseeeeeee!!!!  I love Aubergines, and appetisers tasting, dipping, spreading, a little of this a little of that yummm.   I bought a few Aubergines the other day and wasn’t really sure what to do with them fry or bake them or make a dip…hmmmm I thought about it for a while and went with baking them along with a few other delicious ingredients.   Summer time is great for appetisers…so if you want to try a delicious appetiser give this one a try.
