Thai Eggplant Soup



Does anyone have a recipe for soup using Thai eggplants? Today I bought some Thai eggplants and I'm looking for a recipe. I remember having some amazing soup at a Vietnamese restaurant (or maybe it was Cambodian? I'm pretty sure it was Vietnamese, though.) a few years ago which had Thai eggplants in it. Does anyone know of a similar recipe?

Bread makers!

Hello everyone!
Me and my friend are moving into together and we have decided to buy a bread maker. The only problem is, we're both mentally challenged and when we browse online we don't know which one to get because we don't actually know what specifications we want. Anything under £50 would be best.
I know a lot of people here bake so I was hoping you guys could post about what bread makers you have, and like the ups and down etc. Posting bread recipes for bread machines would also be awesome. Thanks alot!
