Next up, Over the Rainbow by S&C with too shadowy lemon thyme.
Last, but not least in our ballband parade is S&C Midnight Magic and special friend Lacy Picot Swirl . Hope you enjoyed the parade, folks.
A trip to HobbyLobby last week to take advantage of the S&C sale...yes, those are (eeek!) crochet hooks at the bottom of the picture.
This is a yard of upholstery fabric that I bought while at HL for only $2. Love the hokie print! I have something in mind to make with this, so I hope to get to it this week and can show you soon.
In the meantime, please have a look at Hakucho's Big Bag Pattern for recycling those plastic store bags that we all have a million of. And you must see CeElle's ballband cloths at her site, Coming-Unravelled. They're quite elegant, and don't forget to check out her free cloth patterns and gift tag downloads. Have a great week, Y'all.
Fried Green Tomatoes
(Crunchy when cooked and can be eaten by hand when cooled slightly. :)
4-6 green medium to large tomatoes
1 1/2 cups cornmeal, I use White Lily plain or self-rising
2 eggs, beaten or water or milk, doesn't matter
peanut oil for frying
1. Wash and slice tomatoes.
2. Dip slices in water, milk or beaten egg, whichever you prefer.
3. Place dipped slces in a bag or container with enough cornmeal to coat the slices well.
Shake until well coated and let the tomato slices set in bag for 20-30 minutes shaking occasionally to keep the slices from sticking together. This puts a good/but not too thick coating on the tomatoes.
4. Deep fry at 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes or 'til golden brown. (Pan fry is okay, too.)
5. Dust lightly with salt to taste.
Hope yours turn out great!
