fried maters & lemon spaghetti
Bert and I made dinner together tonight and boy was it yummy! We share the cooking responsibilities in our house as we both enjoy making and trying new entrees. Today we joined forces: Bert made a delicious lemon spaghetti recipe and I made some "fried green maters". Bert tried the lemon spaghetti recipe from food network's Giada De Laurentiis cookbook Everyday Italian. This is a keeper! We found some green tomatoes at the Mesa community farmer's market yesterday so, I just had to try them. I've never made them before and after browsing some recipes online I found you can cook them a few different ways. Some say cornmeal, some just flour, some with breadcrumbs. I choose to make them like fried eggplant (my fav!). I dipped the sliced tomatoes into flour, egg and breadcrumbs, then fried them up. The verdict? Yum! After I got over the fact that they were tomatoes and not eggplant, I really enjoyed them. What a great new fried treat (not that I really need a new fried treat)!
