    I’m planning on taking it easy – I’ve been traveling allll over and it’s going to be nice to just stay in, and take a break. Your tomato looks delish! Definitely need to experiment with these yellow and green yums.

    enjoy NYC, as a relocated New Yorker, the City will always have a special place in my heart πŸ™‚

    I am going to Syracuse to visit my husband’s family this weekend. I was out of town the last time you came to NYC, too! I’ll be around for a blogger meet up one of these days πŸ™‚

    What a great twist on eggplant parm! I love it. I hate working long days, too – I am so burnt out by the end of the day that I just want to come home and do nothing!

    I feel the same way about marinara. Sometimes I eat foods just so I can eat marinara.

    I am heading to the beach this weekend and hoping the hurricanes don’t interfere!

    Is that really a nectarine or is that a mistype? It looks like a plucot!

    I’m a nurse and I work 3-4 13 hour shifts a week. Don’t be a nurse in Kansas. The payscale sucks. Probably don’t move to Kansas, period πŸ˜‰

    It’s REALLY hard to find the energy to make something healthy after being at work on your feet all day. I’d love to know how other nurses manage it!

    I love fried green tomatoes – I couldn’t get enough of them when I lived in the south…

    I need to search the supermarket for them now – love this idea!

    I have to work Friday night but otherwise I am looking forward to the weekend – Saturday will be my first day off in 2 weeks!

    I wish I could work 8 hour days! I work AT LEAST 10 on my “easy” days, but lately its been super busy so its been more like 12-13. While it def. does blow, it is quite a treat when you do get a 7-8 hour day out of the blue. Makes it seem like you have all the time in the world!

    Hmm, I’ve never had fried green tomatoes! I’ll have to try them out soon.

    Totally agree with you on the 10 hour days. I seem to have a couple every year. Ick.

    Oh, how I LOVE Fried Green Tomatoes..and I’m talking about the real stuff! Deep fried with ranch. So nice for a treat every once in a while!

    You may commend people for working 10 hour days..but I commend you for only stopping at one dessert. Holy cow! Yours look delicious!!!

    10 hour days do suck, however right now I’m lucky enough to only have to do them 4 days a week instead of 5.

    You’ll make it through! Only a little bit longer!

    I work 12 hour shifts, but luckily only have to work 3 days a week. I will be helping to deliver babies this weekend-since I’m a labor and delivery nurse πŸ™‚

      On second thought.. I’d take just working a normal 9-5 everyday too.. these 1230pm-10pm days really blow.

    Our new office furniture is being delivered to the house this Saturday so we’ll be getting everything organized I’m sure, but I’m actually really excited about this…..our current “office” is the kitchen table and its totally not working for us!!

    I had a marinara covered dinner tonight as well! Pasta and veggies. We are headed to Austin for the holiday weekend – some friends are getting married and it should be a fabulous time! You are going to have a blast in NYC! πŸ™‚

    you can do this!! 2 more days.

    just think of the days to be covered in marinara sauce and then maybe that will make you like them enough to get through them lol. (did that make any sense???)

    great recipe!

    I work 10-hour days. It’s really rough at first, but it gets better. (Depending on your job, though, because I’m in awe of you nurses who work 12-hour days doing what you’re doing!) When I first started, I was super drained all the time. It would take me a whole day just to get over it when my weekend started. Now, I’m so used to it that when I work a rare five-day week, I feel more drained by having only two days off on the weekend!

    My family will probably be having a birthday party for my aunt this weekend.
    Can you believe I’ve never had fried green tomatoes?

    By the way Meghann, I just started a blog and I hope you don’t mind but I listed you as one of my favorites! πŸ™‚ I love your blog!
    I have to say again that I really like the new section you added about Orlando. I used to live there a couple of years ago and love a lot of the places you listed. Especially Seasons 52, YUM!

    Well I’m not a tomato fan, but I am interested in your breading method. I always thought you needed egg to hold on the breading – I’m surprised the almond milk worked so well.
    I just got home so my holiday weekend plans are to catch up on work… and nurse my sprained ankle. πŸ™

    I am a huge tomato fan, those look amazing!

    I used to work 10-12 hour days for my first 2 1/2 years out of college, and I hated it. Part of it was what I was doing, but also feeling like I never really got away from work since I worked 10+ hour days and frequent Saturdays.
    Recently, I took a new job that has a flexible 40 hour/week schedule and a slight pay cut, but I have never been happier. 10 hour days are tough!

    We’re flying to Paris tomorrow! We’re taking advantage of a free vacation day and spending 10 days in London and Paris. So excited!

    I used to work ten hour days but then it got so tiring and in the winter I felt like I never saw daylight. Plus our lunch breaks are only half an hour so it was a straight 10 1/2 hour day in a basement office πŸ™

    I teach middle school at a charter school. I arrive around 7:30 A.M., teach until 3:15, direct traffic at dismissal, and then coach cheerleading three days each week (or have football games) until 5:30. After that, I work for another hour or so to prepare for the next day. My days off cheer are for staff and team meetings, which go until 5:00. I use those days to get extra work done!

    Today, for example, had a staff meeting until 4:30 and then I met with my principal to do some planning until 6:15. Then I worked on plans and cheerleading uniform orders until 7:00, when I finally left.
