For the green tomatoes: This is one of my favorites, I don't care what the reviewers say - it's good, and it tastes like tamales!

Yep - I did a fried green tomatoes post, and they were excellent, but Nic at Bakingsheet tried baking her fried green tomatoes for the IMBB frying edition for a healthier option, and they looked just as good!
I also discovered that sliced green tomatoes work really well in soups! Good luck with them all!

Celine

I am a vegetarian too, for over ten years now. I think about relapsing sometimes when I read wonderful food blogs like yours, but the darn animals are just so cute to cook/eat!

What made you go back to meat? Do you think that you were physically healthier as a vegetarian?

Lynette Stanley-Maddocks

Niki, Michelle: Thanks for that. I need as many good green tomato recipes as I can get!
Celine: I went back to meat because I really like it and because I moved to Australia. Try not eating meat in Australia. It's darn hard. The crazy Aussies even raffle the stuff off!

Stephanie

Lyn, Thanksgiving is the hardest for me...I adore turkey dinner! It's never the same, no matter how much I try to fake food it...sigh.

But purple potatoes? God, do I love 'em. The color really stayed in yours, too!

Re green tomatoes -- put them in a cool place (basement is good, fridge is not), cover with newspaper, check every few days to see if green is morphing to orange to red.

Re your tiny yield of potatoes -- did you hill them at least twice? My father-in-law (the potato king of Millet) always does his three times and swears this is the key to high yields.

Niki

But there are so many vegetarians in Australia too! I could never even consider it; I'm European/Aussie, therefore I adore my meat.
Have you ever noticed that that the countries with the vast majority vegetarians who do it by choice are those from USA and UK; neither countries having a very strong culinary trafition? (paraphrasing Jeffrey Steingarten here) :-)

I planted cherry tomatoes and got a good sized crop. I also goot quite a bit of green tomatoes. Only knew about the "fried green tomatoes" and cherry tomatoes are not good for that so I found a recipe for green tomato soup. I happily made a batch and yuck! The soup was so sour that not even two tablespoons of sugar and about 1/2 cup of whipping cream saved the day. The whole production, plus the remaining green tomatoes went into the trash!
