Finally, Tomato Sandwiches

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.

This is a Concord Grape Spiderwort I recently bought at 75% off. It's now blooming!

Don't make me come over there and steal that delicious Alabama-style 'mater sandwich.
You're right, there's no way grocery store tomatoes will make a good sandwich !

For me, my first sandwich with a home grown tomato has to be a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich.

Your flowers all look quite pretty!

You can leave the bacon off, and add a paper thin slice of sweet onion on mine, Robin!
