Not Sure Where The "Egg" Comes From.

I recently discovered that the idea of eggplant parmesan inducing labor came from a small restaurant in Georgia called Scalini's (you can read more about it here). Apparently, 300 women have eaten the eggplant parmesan served there and have gone into labor within 48 hours.

So. Guess what I had for dinner tonight, folks?

I didn't fly to Georgia, but I did stop at my favorite local Italian restaurant, Napoli's. I've never had eggplant before, so I was a bit skeptical, but I have to say, the dish was absolutely amazing. I didn't take a picture of it, so the above stock picture will have to suffice. Now. I highly doubt I will go into labor in the next 48 hours, although I did have some big contractions earlier today, before I ate the delicious dish. Rumor has it that the labor-inducing power comes more from the Oregano and Basil, rather than the eggplant. But, who knows. Either way, Naomi and I both experienced a yummy new favorite today!

How about you? What "labor-inducing" ideas have you heard?

(And, ladies, let's keep it clean! Ha ha. :))

Have a lovely day!


  1. Pineapple! Laughing hysterically...worked for me both times. Bouncing on a ball. Curb walking. ...I think I've heard them all. ;)

  2. Apparently, Target-walking with YOU makes people go into labor! ;)

  3. Um, high blood pressure! Then they'll pump you full of pitocin and that baby will slide right on out! ;)

  4. drive on a bumpy/gravel road! or ride in a ski boat (same idea of bouncing), although i'm not sure you would want to go into labor in the middle of the lake :)
