Here’s my first attempt at fried green tomatoes.
I threw them together last night on my husband’s dinner break, and they turned out pretty good. As you can see, I served them with summer squash and a piece of sauteed tilapia.
I thought I had cornmeal in the cupboard, but I didn’t. I ended up dipping the tomato slices in a mixture of egg and milk with a few drops of hot sauce, then dredging them in seasoned flour and frying in oil. Flavorful, but not as crunchy on the outside as I would like. I suppose practice (and a little cornmeal) will make perfect.
If anyone else decides to attempt fried green tomatoes as a result of our discussion this week, please try to send a picture. I would love to see them!
The produce fairy came again yesterday while I was at work, leaving a huge armful of fresh rosemary and basil. I plan to use some of the fresh rosemary within the next few days, but I cannot possibly use it all.. Since I love the herb so much, I’m going to dry it and save it for future use. I did a little research about drying herbs and found out that not every herb dries well.
