Went to church tonight, came home and made angel hair spaghetti with Ragu sauce.

We have been watching True Grit, the newer version of the movie, and watched the second segment of it tonight. My son doesn't get home until after 10 PM and my husband gets up at 4 AM, so we decided to watch it in three parts.

It was after 11:30 PM when I took Princess for a walk. I saw someone sitting under a tree on the opposite side of the street from where houses are. I decided to not pass that way and to come home.

Our brother-in-law called this evening and said we could come to their house and pick tomatoes. I would really like some fried green tomatoes and tomato sandwiches are good too. We haven't done our grocery shopping and I am working on bank statements. It doesn't look good so far. I suppose hubby is having a time remembering, I know I am. He neglected to deduct some things that are taken out of checking automatically. We had a service charge for the bank taking money from savings and putting it into checking.

I opened a jar of blackberry preserves today that our son's girlfriend bought for me and had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and coffee. The preserves are very good.

    FRIED GREEN TOMATOES...........One of my favorite movies and I am going to try making them this summer. Our tomatoes aren't quite ready yet. Do you have a favorite recipe for them?

    I have been eating tomato sandwiches and yes, they are pretty good. I made some homemade vegetable soup with lots of tomato/ground beef broth today since I had extra vegetables to use. I will probably eat on it for a week.

    I love tomatoes too! Just to say that tomato (and beetroot) sandwiches are not 'empty' calories! Both tomatoes and beetroot provide heart healthy antioxidants and are even thought to help prevent some cancers. Wholemeal bread provides B vitamins, fibre and antioxidants as well as being filling. If one is careful with the choice and amount of butter/spread/mayo/salad cream (there are plenty of low fat varieties available) this is indeed a healthy choice as a part of a varied diet. It's all about balance and moderation I guess.

    Vine ripe tomatoes are the best! I love them sliced and with salt and pepper. I'm not a fan of chow - chow (kind of a relish) made out of green tomatoes or fried green tomatoes. Especially if the fried green tomatoes are fried in a cast iron skillet. That has to be an acquired taste for sure. My mom always gets us girls messed up and when we go to visit she usually makes a big batch of fried green tomatoes. I always tell her we need to call my older sister over to eat with us because she loves them. My mom's like why do I always think you like them? Beats me. But I do love pickled jalapeƱo slices drained and cooked like fried okra and dipped in light ranch dressing of course LOL.

    I had a lightbulb moment about tomato sandwiches on Sunday! I had grown up eating them for my tea but it was only on Sunday I realised how "empty" they little protein, lots of carbs and fat. I do like them with salad cream which adds lots of fat. It helped me understand how I became that fat child, fat adolescent and fat adult. Beetroot sandwiches are another childhood favourite of mine and they are "empty" too.
    Hope the money lasts till the end of the month
    best wishes,Sandra

    Day 82! I'm so impressed.

    I love regular red tomatoes. I've never had fried green tomatoes; I saw them once, and they looked a bit slimy. Maybe I just saw a bad batch - or maybe they don't taste the way they look maybe? I hope you enjoy them, though. There's nothing like homegrown foods, is there?
