This looks like a great idea. I wonder if it's any good?

I never thought I'd like Fried Green Tomatoes (I love the movie), but I had three huge tomatoes that refused to turn red in the garden. I didn't want them to go to waste so I looked up a recipe and tried it out. The plants are still producing tomatoes like mad now. Next year I'll start my seeds much earlier in the season (like in March!) then maybe I'll get some good tomatoes to eat in the summer instead of the fall when it begins to get cold...

anyway here is my recipe. it's all stuff I had on hand too.


* 1 cup all-purpose flour (I used 1/2 cup since I had fewer tomatoes)
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon pepper (I also added a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to make it a bit spicy)
* 5 green tomatoes, sliced 1/2 inch thick (I used 3)
* 1 cup crushed saltine crackers ( used crushed wheat thins for more crunch and flavor)
* 2 eggs, beaten
* 1/2 cup butter ( used half vegetable oil and half olive oil because I can't, for the life of me, cook with butter without burning it)


1. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, salt and pepper. Place the crushed saltine crackers in another bowl, and the beaten eggs in a third bowl.
2. Melt the butter (oil) in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip each tomato slice in the egg to coat, then in the flour mixture. Dip the floured tomato slice back into the egg, and then into the cracker crumbs. Place the coated tomato slices in the hot skillet, and fry until golden brown on each side, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Add more butter to the pan, if necessary. Serve hot!

(the other thing I did to make it easier was mix the cracker crumbs into the flour and only dipped once in the egg and then the flour.)

they came out great and I have some to snack on later :)

time to watch some dvd's and read some homework... it's great to have a day to do absolutely nothing! doesn't happen often.

I came across this and it almost brought me to tears... of joy. knowing that there are people who believe and haven't given up in these times that just seem to be getting harder, there is hope in the horizon and joy to be shared after such a wonderful moment in history was reached yesterday. I say reached because there was always a time that this would happen but it was uncertain as to when. well today is the day :)

here's the story:

no beer for those on ladders!

so I finally got the call and this time it wasn another counter offer. it was a decision. the bank decided to accept my final offer with one condition. all I had to do was change the closing date from July 31st to July 28th! wow that was better than I was expecting. later after I got home my Realtor called me and said I had to email the listing agent to confirm the change in closing since we can't sign the real papers until Thursday morning. There was another contract coming in, but since I emailed him it's mine! I almost can't believe it... I'm somewhat shocked and wonder if it's going to be a long 6 weeks or a short 6 weeks :)

camp is creeping up fast as well. Alli and I have been working hard but it's hard in it's own when we have to wait on so many other people for last minute information such as health forms and applications. inventory of supplies will be fun with someone to actually help me this year too :)

it's too hot I'll update later! off to take a cold shower and dream of what colors I'm going to paint my soon to be mortgaged walls :)
