A Fried Green Tomato Summer….

Green Tomatoes Frying

Green Tomatoes Frying

Tonight I am pausing and drinking in all that was summer. Wow it’s gone. I was so busy concentrating on my triathlon’s that it blew by me. We had a great garden and more tomatoes than we can eat quickly. Lots are frozen for pasta sauce to be made at a later date. Some of them however were fried green for my Mom. She said her grandmother fried them and she loved them. So a little flour, a few breadcrumbs, a teaspoon of sugar, a bit of salt, pepper and garlic powder and into hot oil. Yummy actually. Can’t explain it you jut have to try them.

It was that type of summer and I have enjoyed every minute of it.

The Plan – Day Three

So on Tuesday¬† Mom and I do the grocery shopping. She is still shopping at 95 with little help from me. It’s hasn’t been my favorite activity but I am warming to the task. I decided that with my new goal of getting organized that I would make Tuesday a food prep, kitchen cleaning day. Until further notice I will dedicate the bulk of my day doing prep work for meals for at least two days ( I teach on Wednesday evening). I planned the menu for the next few days, made a marinade for this evenings meat and made a Weight Watchers syrup for peaches for me. I also washed and bagged the produce and cooked veggies for several days.¬† Did I mention that I was up at 7:30 am (good for me) and dusted the floors and furniture. Who knew that organizing could be so helpful.
