"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Directions:
Wash and slice the tomatoes. (Do not peel.) Coat well with flour and saute in light oil. Salt and pepper each and brown on both sides. Place in sauteed tomatoes in a pyrex baking dish. Sprinkle the tomatoes with just a little sugar before baking. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in 350 degree oven.

While the tomatoes are baking, add flour to the drippings in the pan and brown. (Just as you would make gravy for fried chicken or pork chops.) Add water, salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the tomatoes with gravy on the side.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I prefer the tomatoes fixed this way. However, for a change you can coat the tomatoes in corn meal, with salt, pepper & sugar, and fry them in butter. Serve them without gravy. They are especially good for breakfast fixed this way.
