I met a friend for lunch at Dadeo – one of my all-time favourite spots. When the waiter asked us, “Would you like to try our special of Fried Green Tomatoes for an appetizer?” I quickly answered, “Yes!” He confirmed that they are really delish and we made a good choice.

Dadeo normally doesn’t have specials, which is why I was all over trying them. But the main reason is that amm used to make fried tomatoes. They wouldn’t be green – she would use red – but they were fabulous and I loved them. It’s been a while since I made them…I should probably whip up a batch soon. I know that dad still makes them.

The Fried Green Tomatoes were a fabulous appy and it was nice to share them with someone…
