I hope everyone had a great Wednesday! It’s the middle of the week, yayyy! I accomplished a good amount today. Paid a bunch of bills, returned some things that I’ve been meaning to return forever and visited Jay!
For lunch I made some angel hair pasta with some sauce and fresh mozzarella. Anddd I decided to try out some fried green tomatoes!
I’ve had fried green tomatoes at a restaurant before but never tackled making them myself.
I made them the same way that I’d make eggplant. Just sliced up the tomato, threw it in some egg and then bread crumbs! I then cooked them in a little olive oil. A little bit goes a long way! And I try to limit my oil usage but you really need the olive oil flavor when you’re making something tasty like fried green tomatoes. Plus, I wouldn’t be real Italian if I didn’t.
It was a great lunch!
After running my errands and taking Sandy for a nice long walk I headed to hang out with Jay. He grabbed us pizza from one of the best pizza places!
We each got personal pizzas. I had to retrain myself from eating the whole thing.
I also had a side salad with some balsamic dressing. I wish restaurants would use a better variety of veggies in side salads sometimes!
Speaking of, today I stopped in the OG for a few minutes. One of my friends told me that he had a salad the other day and went on to describe what was in his salad which included something along the lines of, “leafy greens, sliced almonds, strawberries, a raspberry vinaigrette”. It always makes me laugh/happy that people think of me when they have good food! I always love a good food story
