Yeah, it’s Wednesday and it’s the first time I’ve posted about this. I really did do it Monday, I just got caught up in things and didn’t get it up on the day I wanted to.

To start things off, Monday’s Alabama food is Fried Green Tomatoes. Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe is such a good book, and a tribute to both the fictional place and the real deal, The Irondale Cafe in Irondale, Alabama seemed like just the thing! The chicken is a recipe from The Food You Crave.
