I was thinking of my grandmother, Hattie Pearl, when I made this dish. She passed years ago; however, the lessons she provided me in the kitchen and in life live on to this day.
This dish also reminds me that I started Fried Green Tomatoes movie and never finished it. If y’all have any thoughts on that movie, feel free to hit me up on my @forksonly Instagram page because I’m more of a Pocahontas and Dance with Me girl myself.
These fried green tomatoes made me replay every memory I had of my grandmother in the kitchen when she was chefing it up… before chefing it up was even a phrase.
This dish is simple, easy to prepare and absolutely delicious. Who knew that frying tomatoes would bring my inner child to life and much joy?
