Wordless Wednesday 12

New braces & the strawberry harvest. Rowan rocks it all.


Wordless Wednesday, community garden clean-up edition

The soil is dreadful, and the area's infested with quack-grass, but it has some sun.

The same plot, a couple of hours later. That’s work.

Fried Tomatoes & fried tomato gravy.


You need tomatoes, something to fry them in, oil, flour or Bisquick, and milk, bread, butter if you make the gravy. Seasoning is optional.

1.Slice the tomatoes. If they’re beautiful & firm, they’ll do for fried tomatoes. If you have to cut bits out, you’re set for gravy.

2. Dredge in flour or Bisquick. You can season the flour if you want, but it isn’t necessary. If you do, experiment with seasoned salt, italian seasoning, or some such.

3.Fry in a pan in olive or some light oil.

4. Turn over & fry the other side.

5. Remove to plate.

6. For gravy, put a little flour in the remaining oil and slide your most fragile tomatoes back in.

7. Chop them roughly with the spatula.

8. Slowly pour in milk, while stirring. This is a white sauce with tomato bits.

9. Serve over toast or bread, with a pat of butter, if you like.
