Green Tomatoes

While in Austin I made a trip to the Saturday Farmers’ Market. I love visiting markets in other towns to get a sense of the variety that is local to each area. We’re just coming out of winter here in Toronto so the selection at my weekly market is meager. Austin, on the other hand, is well into spring so the selection was very exciting.

One of my favorite purchases were these green tomatoes. I fully intended to indulge in fried green tomatoes, until I realized that, oops, most of the ingredients come in large bags and I wasn’t going to be able to use them up in a 6 day stay. In the end I did not make the tomatoes but did order a plate at the local BBQ joint.

I left the tomatoes behind hoping that the next group to stay in the little cottage will use them up. Probably wishful thinking on my part.
