So I leave my food blog, to embark onto the many other topics I want to write about, to embrace all the things my life is about, to shed the shackles of a topic.
And what do I write about for my inaugural post? Well. Some things don’t change.
So I love food. I’m pretty equal opportunity about it, but I do have my favorites.
One of those favorites? Tomatoes. Especially fresh, from my garden, super juicy tomatoes.
This summer we have had a really good tomato “crop.” I also discovered a Thursday farmers market near where I work, and I can’t resist their from-the-farm tomatoes either.
So we have been eating a LOT of tomatoes. My favorite way to enjoy a fresh tomato is a very simple tomato sandwich. I’m not going to bore you with a recipe. It’s toast, light mayo, and sliced tomato with a little bit of salt. I found out recently that some people haven’t tried this. If you’re one of them, you are going to need to get on that about 5 minutes ago.
Look, it’s not just me. Here’s a great link about this deliciousness: http://www.motherearthnews.com/Relish/Perfect-Tomato-Sandwich.aspx
I had one for lunch. Then, greedy girl, I had another for dinner. Perfection. So perfect that I forgot to take a pictures! But believe me, it was Ah-mazing. If late summer sunshine had a taste, I think this sandwich would be it. It makes me want to say words like ripened, and laden.
Here’s a picture of more bounty:
Those aren’t rotten tomatoes there on the top. They are habeneros that I also bought at the farmers market. I’m hoping this little tray will become salsa soon. Minus the sweet potatoes. That’d be weird.
