I'm over a month in the new place and I still can't find my scale, honestly I haven't looked for it, I'm not too worried because I have successfully entered my second week of waking up and working out. It's not about the number on the scale, it's about how you're feeling. This morning I was emotional and overwhelmed but as I write this I am feeling a lot better. I pushed through the feelings to complete my work-out and I encourage you to push through whatever's going on with you right now. We all have ebbs and flows with our day to day, it's ok. You are going to make it through.

A few days back I decided try and make Fried Green Tomatoes. The tomatoes arrived in my latest Pacific Northwest Fresh box and the moment I saw them, I wanted to watch the film Fried Green Tomatoes while eating them.

There are a lot of different recipes for this so if you have a favorite let me know please :) I will for sure be making them again! @sarahjthedj

Here's the ingredients you will need based off the recipe I chose to use:

Two large green tomatoes sliced 1/2 inch thick

Two Cups Buttermilk

1 teaspoon Homemade Cajun Seasoning or store bought optional

3/4 cup cornmeal

Salt & Pepper

Vegetable Oil (1/4 deep in the pan)

There are many dipping sauces for fried green tomatoes I chose to use a siracha mayo dip, here are the ingredients:

1/3 cup mayo

1 Tablespoon Sriracha (to taste)

1 teaspoon asian sambal or chili garlic sauce

1 teaspoon lemon or lime ( didn't see this so next time I'll try and I bet it's totally worth it)

Does anyone else run into the issue where you really want to create something but you are missing an ingredient, so you go to the store, get back home, get half way through and realize you are missing another, key, ingredient?

Yep! I didn't have any cajun spice so below is a recipe for the one I used to create it

You'll need the following spices

2 Tablespoons Garlic Power

2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning

2 Tablespoons Paprika

1 Tablespoon black pepper

1 Tablespoon Cayenne Pepper

1 Tablespoon Dried Thyme

1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
