Saturday night my sister and her husband were in town. We were all sitting around and I happened to come upon a post on Baby Center that mentioned Scalini's famous labor inducing eggplant parmasean. Remembering that a friend had recently mentioned it to me as well I thought I'd look it up. Low and behold it was 12 miles from our house! It didn't take much convincing for me to get Bekah to agree to go out with me at 8:30 on a Saturday to eat this famous dish.
Rumour has it that over 300 women have gone in to full blow labor and delivered their babies within 48 hours of eating this dish. Being that I'm over 41 weeks pregnant at this point, I'll try almost anything!
So we went and it was a complete blast. Our waitress was amazing. She said her sister ate the eggplant when she was due and went in to labor 30 minutes after. She said there are some nights where all of the tables she is waiting on are full of only pregnant women and their husbands.
The restaurant is full of pictures of babies and testimonials of the eggplant. If you deliver your baby within 48 hours of eating it then you get a gift card for the restaurant and your baby gets a Scalini's onsie.
They have a baby book there that you sign if you eat the eggplant and according to the book I was the 10th pregnant lady there that night! And as my sister and I left there was another one walking in right in front of us for the eggplant.
Man I want that onsie...10 hours until my deadline is up.
