FRIED GREEN TOMATOES


Ingredients    
4 large green tomatoes
2 eggs
½ cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup cornmeal
½ cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 quart vegetable oil for frying


Directions
Step 1: Slice tomatoes 1/2 inch thick. Discard the ends.

     
Step 2: Whisk eggs and milk together in a medium-size bowl. Scoop flour onto a plate. Mix cornmeal, bread crumbs and salt and pepper on another plate. Dip tomatoes into flour to coat. Then dip the tomatoes into milk and egg mixture. Dredge in breadcrumbs to completely coat.
        
Step 3: In a large skillet, pour vegetable oil (enough so that there is 1/2 inch of oil in the pan) and heat over a medium heat. Place tomatoes into the frying pan in batches of 4 or 5, depending on the size of your skillet. Do not crowd the tomatoes, they should not touch each other. When the tomatoes are browned, flip and fry them on the other side. Drain them on paper towels.

Vegetable Gardening in Florida 

Gardening is a great form of exercise and provides a great way to relax, which is good for your mental health. Plus, with fresh vegetables just a few steps away from the dinner table, it's more likely that you'll eat them every day. These days many people are concerned with eating food that's fresh, in season, and locally grown. Having your own vegetable garden is definitely the simplest way to ensure all three.

Growing your own vegetables can definitely save you money, if done right. It is possible to spend a lot of money on your garden buying seed, tools, fertilizer, and other items you may need. The trick to saving money in this endeavor is keeping costs down while maximizing your garden's yield. And remember, too, that the first year you have a vegetable garden is probably going to be your most expensive one. The typical garden is more cost-effective each year you cultivate it.

It's also tastier to grow your own—vegetable varieties grown in the home landscape often have a much more savory flavor than the vegetables found in grocery stores, which are bred for looks and shelf-life more than taste. You can incorporate flowers, herbs, and fruits into your vegetable garden to make a beautiful statement in any landscape.
