fried green tomatoes

our daughter tina and her gary were coming to dinner to celebrate their anniversary
so i thought i would make one of her favorites, fried green tomatoes......i had never
made them before so i turned to simply recipes and here is what i found (and the
tomatoes were great!):

3 medium, firm green tomatoes
1 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 egg
1/3 c. cornmeal
1/2 c. fine dry bread crumbs
1/4 c. peanut or vegetable oil

cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 " slices and sprinkle with salt.  let tomato slices stand
for 5 minutes.  meanwhile, organize the separate bowls for the flour, the buttermilk and
egg, and the breadcrumbs with cornmeal.

heat the oil in skillet on medium.  beat the egg and buttermilk together.  dip tomato slices
in the flour, hen the buttermilk/egg mixture, and the cornmeal/breadcrumb mixture.  in the
skillet, fry the tomato slices 3-5 minutes on each side or until a lovely golden brown.  set
the cooked slices on paper towel to absorb the oil and sprinkle lightly with coarse salt.
