Today was nice and cool, a perfect day for being outside. I went to both the Fishers and Noblesville farmers markets this morning. My mom has been telling me about the delicious tomatoes from her Alabama garden and she had me craving a tomato sandwich. I found some beautiful, perfectly ripe tomatoes at the Wilson's Farm stand, along with squash, new potatoes, cantaloupe, green beans and corn. For both lunch and supper tonight I had tomato sandwiches. They were so good! If you've never had a tomato sandwich before, you must try it. Here is how I do mine. Use fresh white bread, carefully peel the tomato and slice it, lightly spread mayonnaise on both slices of bread, add the tomato, salt and pepper and enjoy. Delicious! WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS WITH GROCERY STORE TOMATOES! Tomorrow I will cook the rest of the veggies and share my friend's yummy squash casserole recipe.
Here are a few blooms for today.
