Happy Creole tomato seasonStill! So far, I've kept to my goal of eating one a day.

For the bourbon lovers out there, take a look at this special offering coming up from GW Fins here in New Orleans. Launching June 14th for National Bourbon Day, they'll be offering a flight of 4 of their most popular bourbons for $25: Basil Hayden, Bulleit, Maker's Mark and Buffalo Trace! Belly up to the bar, order a few starters off the extensive, excellent menu, and enjoy the bourbon. The special will run through Father's Day, June 19th.

For the recipes this week, I selected two from the excellent cookbook Food Between Friends: Gulf Coast Grouper & Grits, an updated take on the ever-beloved shrimp and grits, and a salad topped with delectable and addictive fried green tomatos. And finally, I pulled a delicious and easy braised pork recipe; make it in the slow cooker or in the Instant Pot, with the vast majority of the time involved completely hands off. Enjoy the recipes, stay safe and healthy, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Gulf Coast Grouper & Grits

From the creative cookbook Food Between Friends, this is an evolution of the beloved Southern favorite Shrimp & Grits. There are three components to the recipe, but if you take inspiration and get a friend in the kitchen to help, you'll have dinner on the table in under 45 minutes.

Fried Green Tomato Salad

Fried Green Tomato Salad

I bet you didn't know you needed a fried green tomato salad in your life. I didn't, until I came across this recipe in the cookbook linked above. It's on the menu for the weekend, and I'll grab a few green Creole tomatoes for the process.

Instant Pot or Slow Cooker 

Braised Pork Manwiches

This recipe makes a lot, so plan on taking this to a family reunion or other summer potluck -- or keep it to yourself, portion it out, and freeze it, so that you've got a meal in a hurry on evenings when you just can't bring yourself to cook.
