Fried Green Tomatoes

That Sam I am, that Sam I am. I do not like that Sam I am. First there was ham and eggs of green. Then he gave me tomatoes obscene! Who ever heard of tomatoes so green!

Fry them, fry them said he. Fry them up and you will see.

I do not like tomatoes green. Tomatoes should have a healthy red sheen. Tomatoes belong in a sauce or a salad. Not fried on a plate and looking so pallid. Tomatoes green are tomatoes unripe. Remove the plate full of that tripe.

Try them, try them, you will see. He pushed the plate of them to me. You did not like green eggs and ham, but you tried them said Sam I am.

I will try them, you will see. I will not like them, give them to me.

Sigh. Munch.

Say! I do so like tomatoes green. I want to prance. I want to preen. What a tasty, tasty treat. In my garden under my feet.

Sam smiled at me eating fried tomatoes unripe. Say, did I hear you ask for a plate of tripe?


  1. Fried green tomatoes are one of my favorite foods!!! I wait all year for the first to appear on the vine and then feast! They are great with cole slaw (homemade) and fried corn bread---but don't tell anyone since I'm suppose to be on a diet.

  2. dang girlfriend... too much talent. But I'll still pass on the maters...

  3. The Young One thinks I have too much time on my hands.

  4. LOL, the Young One would be right! LOL Glad you liked the 'maters.
