My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 10: Good ol' Southern food


Back to the


Battle of the CulturesEventually tofu was going to have to turn up in one of my lunches. And, actually, it's fairly nice when mixed in with other stuff.  In this case, I've got stir-fried tofu that was marinated in the juice from marinated stir-fried beef and sauteed mushrooms. Also made some of my typical crab & cucumber sushi, plus fried green tomatoes with buttermilk sauce (in the red container) and grapes.

I taught muself to make fried green tomatoes after having a serving of them at Folks. Why'd I tried them? It was soon after I saw the movie, and I was curious. They aren't the easiest dish to make, in part because it can be difficult to find tomatoes that are just right.
