My husband makes the most incredible burgers - it's kind of his thing. He takes pride in his role as grilling master and everything that comes off his grill is mind blowing delicious. The spices are always so perfect, and the meat cooked to perfection.

I have wanted to try fried green tomatoes ever since I first heard about them back when I was a kid, though up until this summer I had never actually tried making them before. This summer my tomatoes have been doing extremely well so I always have plenty of green tomatoes on the vine. The other day 3 of them looked perfect and round, and ready to pick even though they still weren't ripe. I ended up picking them, and had this recipe for fried green tomatoes in the back of my mind.
I brought the tomatoes home and got to work, making the same breading mixture I often use for chicken fingers, only with the addition of corn flour rather than the usual all-purpose. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome, happy to have an additional use for my bounty of tomatoes that didn't quite taste the way a traditional tomato does. It's been a couple of weeks since I last made this recipe, and writing about it now makes me want to have it for dinner tonight! Off to the greenhouse I go, I'm sure there's a plethora of green tomatoes I can choose from. ;)

You may remember The Little Life Box from back when I first reviewed it in December when they launched. It's a monthly subscription box that is meant to take the guesswork out of finding healthy, organic products. You get a sample of a variety of Canadian products, shipped right to your door each month for the low price of $19.99 (plus $3 shipping to any province). 6 months later, and I still love receiving my Little Life Box! One of my favourite parts about opening this particular subscription box, (aside from the awesome contents of course) is the great tissue paper! I'm always really excited to see what colour combinations they used since they change monthly (and let's be honest, save it to recycle into another gift later).
