something i've always wanted to try: fried green tomatoes
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe
Or in my case, fried green tomatoes at The Burrow (my sub-level condo)
The hardest part--really, the only hard part, of making friend green tomatoes was actually finding them. I've never seen them in the regular grocery store, but One Windmill Farm had them at the Public Market. Woohoo! I bought two and brought the precious cargo home.
Sliced green tomatoes
I dipped them in beaten egg, then dipped half in cornmeal and half in whole wheat, seasoned bread crumbs. If you're Idgie and Ruth, you serve your fried green tomatoes with a side of barbecued jerk-face ex-husband. If you're me, you take the chicken adobo breasts you didn't want to eat straight, pull it, mix it with some tarragon dressing, and call it chicken salad. Oh my yum! It was all delicious, and if there are more green tomatoes at the market tomorrow, I'm going to get some and try to bake them. I wish I had panko! (Edit: I did a search and found this blog post about broiled green tomatoes--yum! The blog itself was recently retired, but browsing through it, I'm finding it quite cool and inspirational!)
