I now regret not planting three times as many tomato plants. Dang, they were good. And simple:
Slice green tomatoes 1/4" thickThey're OK cold, but they're simply outstanding hot.
Sprinkle with home made chili powder (roasted dried chilis ground in the blender)
Dredge in flour
Pan fry (I used too much oil; you only need an inch in your skillet)
sprinkle with salt
Oh, and biscuits. With home made butter (which means home made butter milk).
But conversation with Jay was an excellent time. I thought I've been to a lot of places, but he's been everywhere, with stories to match. Just an excellent, excellent time.
