I'm still getting a kick of harvesting food from my garden. Tonight, I was being rather domestic (for me), cleaning, watering plants and veggies and cooking. Since the boy was out and about I had a rare opportunity to eat something he hates: veggies. My veg and couscous dinner sounded just okay though until I thought about one of my favorite rare treats: fried green tomatoes.
Why are fried green tomatoes such a rare treat when I have copious amounts of the raw ingredient in my garden for several months a year? Because I can't stand to cut short the life of my tomatoes and miss out on another delish ripe beauty. Usually I wait until the end of the season, when frost is imminent and start frying away. But tonight one early girl made the sacrifice and became the perfect slightly tart compliment to my veggie couscous. Yum, yum, yum. If you haven't tried one, you're missing out.
