    My mom wrapped all her unripe tomatoes in news paper and then put them in brown paper bags and promptly forgot about them. We pulled them out this weekend and they were PERFECTLY ripened. It was pretty cool to eat fresh homegrown heirloom tomatoes in late november when it was freezing and dark out. A little time machine in a paper bag sent to us from the past summer.

    I love the look of the Ethiopian House meal. Mmm-mmm. Your photo if the green tomatoes is wonderful.

    Here, fried green tomatoes are not common. However I cook them periodically ever since I saw the film of the same name some many many years ago. Very unusual here, but I like them.

    Fried green tomatoes are just a way to stave off starvation before the crops ripen.
