I like cheese and sauce.

29 Sep
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 :)
Tata!

    Hi Allie,

    While browsing through your wonderful recipes,I have to tell you mine for fried green tomatoes!I guess you made yours Southern Italian style but after living here in the REAL South for the past 20 years I have another way that “natives” prepare them.Here is my recipe:
    3 medium, firm green tomatoes
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup milk
    2 beaten eggs
    2/3 cup Panko crumbs
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    !/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    Method
    1 Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt and pepper. Let tomato slices stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes.

    2 Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 4-6 minutes on each side or until brown. As you cook the rest of the tomatoes, add olive oil as needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Hope you like it!Bless your Heart!
