Oven Fried Green Tomatoes a Low Carb Summer Sensation

Tomatoes Make June Heat Waves in Texas Totally Worth It!

Low Carb and Paleo Friendly to many, Oven Fried Green
Tomatoes make a great side for Barbequed Pulled Pork and
Summertime and the livin’ is easy! Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high.

June in Texas is more than Gershwin tunes and tall cotton! June means triple digit thermometer readings. On the Gulf Coast, June means the hurricane watch begins and will continue into September. But June, means something else in Texas.

June means tomato season busts wide open and between now and about mid-July, it isn’t rainin’ men (thank you to The Weather Girls for helping me continue my musical theme), heck, it isn’t rainin’ much of anything. Texas is in a drought, you know!

Nah, I think this song best describes the affinity I feel towards homegrown tomatoes. Wish I could embed the video but maybe you'll go listen to the link. Apparently there are others who feel as I do! :) (Homegrown Tomatoes by Guy Clark).
