Didn't you have fried green tomatoes at Archibald's in Gardner Village?

I was going to say about the same as Julie...I think the only time I've had fried green tomatoes is with your (mine now, too) family at Archibald's.
I've been Skydiving AND have killed an animal (well, our "family" on pioneer trek) and had to prepare it to eat! AAAGGG! It actucally tasted great, since we were starving. We Only had broth and a chunk of bread in a 36 hr. period and pulling a handcart. Compared to that, it was easy to jump out of plane. Oh, to be young! So, those ones are crossed off, and I don't have any plans to do them again!
Love ya! Miss ya!
