Fried Green Tomatoes
"EACH TIME I fix these tomatoes, it takes me back to the Ohio farm where I grew up. I savor the taste of this delicately sauteed vegetable, with its crisp crust, moistened slightly with the pan gravy. Mom could do these to perfection! Maybe that's why this dish is my favorite part of this memorable meal."
