Fried Green Tomatoes,
adapted from Southern Living


1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 medium-size green tomatoes, cut into 1/3-inch slices
Vegetable oil
Salt to taste


Combine egg and buttermilk; set aside.

Combine 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, cornmeal, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl or pan.

Dredge tomato slices in remaining 1/4 cup flour; dip in egg mixture, and dredge in cornmeal mixture.

Pour oil to a depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch in a large cast-iron skillet; heat to 375°. Drop tomatoes, in batches, into hot oil, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels or a rack. Sprinkle hot tomatoes with salt.

These are great served as is, or with ketchup, salsa, or a creamy buttermilk-style dressing.

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

5 Ways with Bok Choy - check out this blog by Williams-Sonoma with some delicious ideas for Bok choy. I love this unique green, because it has a sweet juicy stem with the tender dark green. I separate the leaves, clean well to remove any dirt in the head, and then chop the stems separately from the greens. The stems will take a few more minutes of cooking, but I think it is best when still crisp-tender. Bok choy is wonderful for stir-fry, in broth-y noodle soups, roasted, and more.
