There is one thing to be happy about. Its Mator time. For lunch I had them with the batter recipe I posted and it is a dandy. I also had my first ripe ones of the year that were most enjoyable on fresh white bread, helmans mayonaise with salt and pepper.
i just got back from south carolina. had some awesome shrimp with grits and fried green tomatoes. if you go to south Carolina, don't forget to bring a bug vacuum and a bug zappa. killer combo for taking out mosquitoes and palmetto bugs.
