    Don’t sell the Southern menu short. It includes: green fried tomatoes (fried green tomatoes?) .. red eye gravy .. fried catfish .. tomato gravy .. chicken fried steak .. black eyed peas .. and a big glass of sweet tea.

    Brother Dave….Fried green tomatoes are also PA Dutch as we had them on the farm and I still make them, although I often use tomatoes that have a bit of ripeness to them. And, you know that we love shrimp and grits. Although not PA Dutch, we love it here and have made it several times.

    duly noted .. the question still remains : “green fried tomatoes” or “fried green tomatoes”??

  6. Mark Hagenbuch says:

    Fried green tomatoes. The adjective “green” is for tomatoes not for “fried”. I wouldn’t know what “green fried” is…..fried in green oil?? We need to take this to Facebook discussion to have fun with it.

    in other words .. pitch it in the air, and see if it flies!!!
