I made fried green tomatos tonight. They don't even sound good. Like fried dill pickles which are mmm shall we say different? So honey's garden is overflowing, we are picking and giving away as fast as we can. I've been eating all types of cherry and grape tomatoes for a month or two (every day). Now the biggun's are huge and green on the vine and there are tons. Though the ones we picked yesterday turned red overnight in a paper bag under the hood light of the stove. There was one green one left so I bought panko bread crumbs, those are the japanese ones and are shaped like flaked fish food, very thin and confetti like. They came out pretty good, edible with a slight chance of craving them again. Too much trouble to really make often, and way too much oil being used to eat very often. Mom's reaction? Why, aren't you a Southern Chick? I wonder if I can still scale and filet a fish? I know I can put a live minnow on a hook while it's squirming, the wimpy guy I was with wouldn't or couldn't do it, but wanted to be fishing.. that day I released everything I caught though. I wouldn't eat Florida Swamp Fish for anything. I don't care what they are called..

Peace and bacon grease!
