We had high wind warnings today and tornado watches, so before I left for work, I went out on the patio and stacked up the furniture. I also left the trash more on the driveway than out on the road, so it wouldn't blow across the street.
But, while it was windy at lunchtime, there weren’t any of the 60 MPH wind gusts they’d predicted, there wasn’t any hail here and by the time I left work at 4:00 PM the sun was out. It had rained, but I checked the rain gauge ant there was only about 1/4 inch of water in it.
So, the big storm must have passed me by (thank God).
I relaxed for a few hours and then made dinner. I peeled my eggplant, ran it through my breading station (flour, egg and seasoned flour) and then fried it.
I checked that paper bag I put the green tomatoes in and my barber was right! All but one had turned red. So, I sliced the biggest one up, drizzled it with olive oil, seasoned it with some sea salt and fresh ground pepper and topped that with crumbled feta cheese. It didn’t taste as “fresh” as a vine-ripened tomato, but it was good!
All in all, I had a delightful, delicious vegetarian dinner.
