Cooking for two: Slather salsa verde on roasted eggplant

posted: 06/29/2016 1:54 a.m. Discuss

(It's the Italian variety that's heavy on herbs, not the Mexican one based on tomatillos, although that one is good, too.)

I'm always looking for unique ideas when it comes to entertaining and July Fourth is one of my favorite holidays for getting together with family and friends.

DEAR HELOISE: I hated the directions for cooking gravy mixes, starting in cold water and constantly stirring until done. Now, for a 1-cup package, I put 3/4 cup water in a pan to boil. Meanwhile, I dissolve the mix in 1/4 cup cold water, add this to the boiling water and stir constantly. The gravy is done in less than a minute.
