Please add me to your ping list.

Here's what I'm having for supper tonight:

Fried Green Tomatoes

3 or 4 large green tomatoes
3 eggs
Hot sauce (to taste)
Lousiana brand seasoned fish fry coating
Vegetable oil for frying.

Slice up the green tomatoes very thinly (about 1/8 of an inch thick). Beat up the eggs with a little hot sauce (to taste. I use about a tablespoonful.) Dip the green tomato slices (one at a time) into the egg and roll in the seasoned fish fry coating. Fry in oil about 1 inch deep in your frying pan. Fry golden brown and then put out to drain on a baking rack.

These fried green tomatoes with a big ol' glass of sweet iced tea make a delightful Southern supper. These go really well with a thick juicy grilled steak, too! :)

The key to making good fried green tomatoes is draining them on the baking rack. They will stay crispy and yummy.

This Louisiana seasoned fish fry also makes excellent fried oysters or shrimp for a po'boy sandwich. Just dip the oysters or shrimp in the egg mixture above and then roll in the fish fry and fry as above. Makes a really good po'boy sandwich! :)

The baking rack trick also helps to keep your fried chicken crispy, too. Just put the pieces to drain on the cookie rack as you take them out of the frying pan. I stand my baking rack on a cookie sheet to catch any drips.

Shrimp Aristotle

Extra virgin olive oil
8-10 Chopped Green Onions
1 cup sliced black olives
1 cup oil packed sun dried tomatoes
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp marjoram
1-1/2 lbs. peeled Shrimp
1 lb. Fettuccine
Fata Cheese

Cook the fettuccine.

In large, heavy skillet put in all of the remaining ingredients except for the shrimp, and Feta Cheese. Heat, until hot. Stir while heating. Toss shrimp on top and cook until just pink. Don't over cook the shrimp.

Divide Fettuccine among 3 or 4 plates. Put 1/4 or 1/3 of the hot mixture atop each plate of noodles. Sprinkle Feta Cheese on top and eat.
