My husband is the one around here with the green thumb. Unfortunately, things have been a little too green lately. He planted 3 tomato plants late this summer, and as a result they’ve taken their sweet time turning red. Unfortunately, due to a forecasted frost however, we were forced to pick them as is. Now we are stuck with dozens of big, plump green tomatoes that refuse to ripen on the kitchen counter.
There was only one thing I could think of to do with them, thanks to one of my all time favorite movies (and books), Fried Green Tomatoes. Every time I watch it, (besides crying my eyes out) I get a hankering for something fried. So I slipped the movie into the DVD player while I searched for a recipe and fried them up. Now that I think about, that’s probably something I can cross off my bucket list. Just like my other favorite movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. One of the first things I wanted to do in New York City was visit Tiffany’s!
The tomatoes were surprisingly good, but then again I suppose anything fried is delicious. And now Eddie won’t feel bad about having procrastinated planting them. He planted them right when he was supposed to – so I could eat fried green tomatoes!
