Yippie it is now August! I love August for two reasons:
1. The damn kids go back to school
2. The influx of green tomatoes I receive.
I just LOVE fried green tomatoes!!! For some reason August is the month that the tomato plants are ready for picking. I'm not sure why but my gardening folks may shed some light on that since gardening ain't my thing, I just reap the benefits haha. I have several folks on Green Tomato Watch for me. My mom gets a steady supply from the folks on her job...she keeps me supplied all the way through the end of September (I luv ya girl), my daughter would steal them from people's garden for me but I made her stop (bad girl), and my mother-in-law just hooked a sista up with some, even cut them up for me....super-thin just the way I like them (good looking out). Some folks prefer to coat them with flour and some prefer cornmeal...I like a mixture of the two but just plain old Gold Medal flour will do for me. There is nothing in the world like eating a hot, fried green tomato fresh out of the grease! Hell I've already eaten half of them before I'm finished frying the batch! Are there any more fried green tomato folks in the house?
