F: 'Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe' and Frankenmuth, Michigan
'Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe'
When I saw the movie and heard that the book was written by Fannie Flagg my thought was that isn't she some actress on TV? Well, she was. And since her given name is Patricia Neal, she had to find a pen name.
Even if you have seen the movie, I encourage you to read the book. It is just delightful. And if you haven't seen the movie, read the book first. Either way, you won't be disappointed.And in case you want to make your own fried green tomatoes, here is a recipe.
Who doesn't love Christmas decorations? And in Frankenmuth, you can see them and shop year-round. Bronner's Christmas Wonderland is in itself worth a visit. Throw in one of the fried chicken dinners at either of two restaurants and your day trip is pretty much full.
