Gluten Free Fried Green Tomatoes

Happy Monday friends!

Did you have a good weekend? I know I did! I was off of work and enjoyed spending some relaxing time with Parrish.

I started off the weekend Friday afternoon at a new-to-me Yoga spot:

Republic of Yoga in Cary – I can’t wait to share more about this later in the week!

Saturday morning I headed to the Downtown Durham Farmer’s Market with a mission: finding green tomatoes.

Success!

And in addition to the tomatoes, I also picked up a gluten free baguette from Imagine That Gluten Free. My blogging friend Pam had recommended it, and boy oh boy was she right!

I’ve already gone through half the loaf, and I’m plotting my next loaf. I’ve had some great frozen baguettes, Schar being my favorite, but there is nothing like a fresh baguette!

Parrish and I spent the rest of Saturday working in our guest bedroom. We’re going to be using that room for the nursery, so we had quite a lot of cleaning out to do. I also took not one but TWO epic naps.

We ended the day with good friends, good food, and a 9pm bed time for me.

Early to bed – early to rise Sunday morning. Bible Study. More cleaning. Meal planning. Shopping for maternity clothes – oh yeah, it’s time. Meal prepping. And two more epic naps.

Luckily, those naps gave me the energy to fry up those green tomatoes!

Gluten Free fried green tomatoes are super easy to make with a GF All Purpose Flour. Read more about how to prepare them here. If you guys want, I can make a quick video the next time I prepare them. Just let me know in the comments if you need more instruction. Y’all have to make a batch at home!

I’m so glad I was finally able to make a batch. I LOVE fried green tomatoes! Crispy gluten free crust on the outside – juicy and just a bit tart tomato on the inside. Love!

What about you?
