Fried Green Tomatoes

It's been awhile since I talked about food here. Those of you who know me in real life know food is my great passion. Not a snob but passionate about good food. Tonight was the first fried green tomatoes of this summer. Not to blow my own horn but I can cook fried green tomatoes. Slap yo' mama good! Take really green tomatoes and slice about a quarter inch thick. Dipped in flour and then in fresh buttermilk before coating thoroughly in a mostly corn meal and flour dredge that has been salted and seasoned with cayenne and onion powder. Fried in about a quarter inch of peanut oil 'til crisp and golden. Lord ha' mercy they were fine.
Did I mention the buttermilk fried chicken and green beans?
