What do you do when you have leftover fried green tomatoes, crispy bacon, and pimento cheese?  You guessed it, make Fried Green Tomato, Bacon and Pimento Sandwiches.  

I like to fry up a considerable amount of green tomatoes for a meal.  We love them leftover.  You may ask are they still crispy leftover.   My recipe for green fried tomatoes lends the best texture for leftovers.  

I always cook twice the amount of bacon for breakfast too for leftovers or to sprinkle on vegetables we have for supper.  

The pimento cheese is made ahead for a quick sandwich for lunch on most days.  Pimento Cheese will keep in the fridge for weeks.  An excellent snack to have with crackers watching tv.

As the summer comes to an end, I am getting in as many fried green tomatoes as I can.  One of my favorite ways to eat them is in a sandwich.  There is just something about all that mayonnaise, a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper sandwiched between to pieces of bread, even toasted.  So good!

My favorite sandwich is a BLT.  And my personal favorite way to eat a BLT is in the style of a club sandwich, epic!  

When I was a little girl, we lived in Columbia, South America.  My Dad worked for Shell Oil Company, and we were part of 100 Americans who worked and lived in a little town in Columbia.  

One of the places we would come together, and fellowship was in a country club setting as you see here in American. 

The country club is where our school was during the day, church on Sunday, and on the weekends the movie theater.  In the restaurant, they served the most delicious club sandwich.

The cherries are so plentiful in the grocery stores right now and what better way to showcase them than to make a Southern Fresh Cherry Cake.  

I actually had to buy a couple of bags of the cherries to have enough to make the cake.  My grandsons are huge fans of these little jewels.  

Like most fruits, fresh cherries have the pros and cons.  Fresh Cherries do not have a lot of nutritional value, but they are high in water content and are super beneficial to eat in the summer to hydrate.
