I got together with my Grandma Dee
and we decided to cook up some fried green tomatoes using an old family recipe.
This was my first time having fried green tomatoes,
but my Grandma used to eat them all the time when she was younger
and she has many fond memories of her family making them.
So we "rekindled" the memories while we enjoyed our time together
eating tasty, fried tomatoes.
6 - 7 green tomatoes
salt and pepper
1 cup flour
1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal (I didn't have any so I added baking powder)
1 cup crisco vegetable oil
egg and milk mixture
(I used 2 eggs and then just poured the milk in until I liked the consistency)
Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet.
Slice tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices.
Salt and pepper the tomatoes.
Whisk egg and milk together;
mix flour and cornmeal together.
Dip tomatoes into milk mixture
and then into flour mixture.
Fry tomatoes on both sides in hot oil.
And enjoy the finished product!
Is it healthy? Probably not!
Is it tasty? Most definitely! :)

Happy Friday Everyone :)
