I really had my heart set on Fried Green Tomatoes yesterday, but as luck would have it I couldn’t find a green tomato any where. My tomatoes in my garden were either already red or too small to be picked. My local farmer’s market didn’t have them either but he assured me they would have some ready to be picked by Friday. So I guess I will just have to wait until next weekend to get me Fried Green Tomato fix!
But then my good friend called and said she was coming up with a bottle of wine. Would I have a gless? Well of course I would, I’d be crazy to turn that down. So rummaged through my refrigerator and came up with some fresh mozzarella and then I found some zucchini. Went out into my garden and picked a few tomatoes. And there it is – Zucchini and Tomato with Fresh Mozzarella! And it was delicious!
