Who doesn't love some good eggplant parmigiana?!
Labor-inducing eggplant parm recipe:
My three sons.
I read the OWT too last time, and just for grins, we went out for Italian and I ordered the eggplant parm.
I did have my water break in the middle of the night that night at 39w1d. We had also had had sex and gone snowshoeing. Oh and there was a massive blizzard with low barometric pressure.
I don't know if it's more the eggplant, or the basil & oregano in the dish, which could account for the success of the OWT (if you can say it was successful). I read that having a lot of those herbs is contraindicated in pregnancy for their ability to bring on labor...did not know that. So, if you hate eggplant, maybe chicken parm would do the trick. I happen to love eggplant, so the whole thing was worth a shot. :-)
Last time DH heard about a restaurant that guarantees you'll go into labor within 2 days of eating their eggplant parmesan (or they give you a gift certificate for another meal). We don't live anywhere near the restaurant but DH found their recipe online and made it at home. We had it for dinner the 2nd and 3rd nights after my due date passed. It was delicious, but DS was still 2 weeks late. For fun, here's the recipe and story about the restaurant:
