- It's "home-grown" tomato season in the south. Look at that beauty - friend Rick had his trunk open after church on Sunday, asking if anyone wanted any tomatoes. Of course! Between he and friend Bren at work, I've had some every day for a week.
- Here it is, sliced up for lunch, for a sandwich. What a gift to have these in my kitchen. I like to make Caprese Salad with them, too, using basil from my potted garden.
- Here is the sandwich from lunch yesterday (I've had this for lunch every day for a week.) So good! I never get tired of this, while home-grown tomatoes are in season. It is tradition in the south to make a tomato sandwich with white bread, mayo and salt. I like Duke's mayonnaise, but do use fresh, whole wheat bread for myself.
Read this ode to the tomato, if you have time, titled, "One Tomato, Two Tomato" by Virginia Willis. Click on the red link. She calls the tomato sandwich "cheap and cheerful." A perfect description.
