Seashell Card & Fried Green Tomatoes

Hello, and welcome! Hope your having a great Thursday! The weather is hot here in Indiana. Supposed to get extremely hot the next few days!

As some of you know, I recently went on vacation to Sanibel Island, Florida. I had a wonderful time with my sister, Christy, and our friend Kim!

I made Kim a card, and knew that I had to put some shells on it, because Sanibel is a wonderful place to find shells, and we found a lot!

Took the picture with my phone, so not the best picture. But, I was impatient, and didn't want to get up to get the camera, so this will have to do.

Here Is a list of products I used to make it:

I have been sharing some of the recipes that I make, and thought I would add a recipe for fried green tomatoes.

Fried Green Tomatoes:

First thing is get some green tomatoes, and heat up your skillet. I add oil and a little butter.


 You will need three separate bowls.
In the first one, add flour, with salt and pepper. Eggs with a little buttermilk in the second one, and Cornmeal in the last one.

 Coat tomatoes with flour, eggs, and then cornmeal.

Fry on both sides.

Place on paper towel, and then serve. 

Then, Enjoy!!!

These are perfect for a summer meal, and hopefully someone that has never made them will give it a try. They are so simple to make! Please let me know if you try them!!

That's all for me today, thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you have a great weekend!

God bless, Cindy!
