Just taking a minute to remind all of my pals in southwest Virginia and thereabouts that it's Tomato Festival time again! Already, you ask? Yep, it's been a year since the last one and now's your chance to enjoy plates of fried green tomatoes, perfectly seasoned and hot out of the pan. I'm especially excited to go this year because I've been invited to judge tomato submissions - good thing I've got a clean white shirt!
This Saturday, from 10 to 4, at the Meadowbrook Center in Shawsville, they'll have live music pretty much all day and there's a Tomato Pageant as well as a silent auction, plus vendors with lots of goodies, and plenty of that ultimate Southern favorite, the Tomato Sandwich!
Here's the place to find out more about the festival and download contest entry forms: http://tomatofestival.wordpress.com/
You could be the next Tomato King or Queen, or your winning recipe could find its way into the festival cookbook!
