Fried Green Tomatoes

Paul Nelson, Givhans, S.C.
It's a good thing to be on friendly terms with a farmer at this time of year! Paul Nelson kindly invited me out to his farm in Givhan's and I'd barely settled in before the smell of friend green tomatoes pulled me into the kitchen. Paul was slicing up tomatoes fresh from the garden and serving the tangy slices hot from the pan. Delicious! I came home with a bag of tomatoes, potatoes, onions, squash and the recipe to make a batch of week killer.

Besides catching up with Farmer Paul and his wife Lana, I got to meet Summerville Journal Scene columnist Julie Smith Hoff and her husband Mike after being social media friends for a couple of years.

A good day and I hope you had one as well.
