Attack of the Vegetables


I'm inudated with butternut squash and eggplant!

I bought said comestibles from this week, sight unseen, and apparently HomeGrocer deals in ginormous vegetables (and maybe I've also forgotten how big these things are, since I haven't used either for a long time).

I have one recipe in mind that will use both, but I'm clearly going to have to make more than one dish featuring butternut squash and/or eggplant. I found this one online, and it looks good, but I don't have a trivet that will fit inside my crock pot, and damned if I'm going to go out looking for one.

Any ideas?
