Fried Green Tomatoes

 Georgia boasts a wide variety of local produce from peaches to blueberries. However, one of my all time favorite farmers market treats is fried green tomatoes.

It’s been said that the general public is eating tomatoes all wrong — waiting for them to turn red when in fact they are at their peak flavor while green. I’m inclined to agree! There is nothing more my family enjoys than picking fresh green tomatoes from our garden, or buying them at the local farmers market.

At the Chagnon household, we make fried green tomatoes with a little “twist”. I’ll call the following recipe: The best fried green tomatoes ever!



Ingredients for 2 servings:

Two medium sized fresh local green tomatoes

about 5-6 large Basil leaves chopped

Blue Cheese

Balsamic reduction

about a 1/2 cup corn meal

Peanut oil


Heat a large skillet with about 1/2 an inch of peanut oil

Slice the tomatoes about 1/4 inch thickness and dust with corn meal

Place tomato slices into oil and cook until golden brown (turning as needed)

Stack tomato slices as follows: slice/blue cheese/slice/blue cheese until about 4-5 slices high.

Drizzle Balsamic reduction on top and garnish with fresh chopped Basil

Ask God’s blessing and enjoy!

Nothing brings togetherness in a family like God, each other, and good southern comfort food!

rush 2013  A lot of exciting things have transpired since the last blog post. First of all, NewLife FM was excited to be a part of RUSH 2013 at the Rock Ranch! What a fantastic outreach to the youth in our area, over 8,000 of them. Hundreds gave their lives to Christ and many more rededicated their lives to Him. It is so exciting to see the next generation on fire for Christ.

RUSH weekend was literally one of the wettest weekends in recent Georgia history — with over 4 inches of rain! That did not stop thousands of excited Duck Dynasty fans from hearing Willie and Si share their love for Jesus. In typical Si fashion, Si noted that “only a Jesus freak would stand outside in the rain to hear him share his love for Jesus. And if loving Jesus makes you a freak,” Si continued, “then I’m the freakiest man alive!”  And yes, Si had his famous tea cup with him the ENTIRE time.

Apart from RUSH weekend, other exciting developments at NewLife FM include preparations for our upcoming Spring Sharathon — May 13th through the 15th. If facebook posts are an indicator, I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority of people are tired of “cursing the darkness” and would like to see real solutions to the problems we face implemented. This is why it is vital for YOU to become a part of NewLife FM as a financial supporter. As a financial supporter, you are helping to implement THE SOLUTION to life’s ills — namely Jesus Christ and His Gospel message.

We need your call and support this Spring Sharathon — we cannot do this without you! Thank you for listening!
