Fried Green Tomatoes
The tomatoes in the backyard have been taunting me for weeks, just screaming to be plucked off the vine and turned into crispy fried green tomatoes. I've never made them before, but I've been dreaming of eating them since I saw Jessica Tandy bite into one back in the 90's. Let me just tell you, they were yummy and much less of a hassle to make than I anticipated.
I followed this recipe from Simply Recipes and served the tomatoes warm with a generous side of hot sauce. Next time, I'll add some creole spices to the cornmeal for a bit of a kick.
