It is amazing that many years ago, folks thought that the tomato was poison. They are such a good portion of my diet that I do not know what I would do without them.
I generally enjoy some part of a tomato on a daily basis.

Stopped at the local veggie man yesterday, the tomatos were looking good. I made the one block home in record time and sliced into the first tom, salt and pepper, some mayo on white bread…ooooohhhYEAH! A couple hours later those toms were callin me back into the kitchen. Plug in the George Forman, butter up some bread, salt and pepper a couple more slices. Lay the bread butter side down on the forman, a slice of cheese, couple slices of tomato, slice of cheese, remaining bread butter side up….grill till golden, repeat last 7 steps… a handful of chips and a tall glass of sweettea….. heavenly
Good juicy New Jersey Beefstake, white bread (NOT toasted) and a heft dose of pepper and miracle whip!..
(oh, and several napkins to wipe the juice running down my arm)
Must be eaten standing up and leaning over the sink!
fish cleaning scraps make great fertilizer but you have to be sure to bury them deep or the neighbors will probably complain, not to mention cats and other critters digging them up… an unusually wet season and an even more unusal cold spell here in NE Florida has basically ruined my 2nd mater crop[:(]
I joined thanks to this mater discussion.
I was looking for tomatoe rec. ages ago and happened to bookmark this discussion…..Now I sit freezing my arse off and drooling thinking about warm juicy sunshine bathed tomatoes and sandwhiches while my garden heaves into death for the winter….
I have heriloom TN tomatoes but now I understand WHY they werent quite the same…may try the fish trick.I kept asking hat you put the left over fish guts around and everyone thought I was nuts.Now I know and sit waiting until spring.
I like my ‘maters room temp, sliced very thinly on a slice of WhiteWheat Bread with a lot of Duke’s Mayo (yes I am sure you can tell I am from NC…LOL) and a lot of black pepper and a dusting of salt
This is good washed down with a glass of southern style sweet tea
East Tennessee is famous for its Grainger County tomatoes. Do not ask me what. They claim it is the soil and some kin to Vidalia onions. They raise thousands of acres of all kinds of tomatoes. They are field grown and are really very good and full of the great acid taste of real tomatoes.
In Rutledge, TN, they have a tomato festival each year and it is a huge even in this one horse town. I was there yesterday and there must have been 50,000 people there. It is a three day even held annually.
I was amazed at the vendors, food, entertainment and the size of the event. I had tomato sandwiches for $1.00 each. Lotsa of tomato products and I assure you I had way to much.

I’m glad to be here for you [;)]
I hate anyone who can just casually mention getting back from my favorite market. It’s just ain’t fair.[:(!]
I just got back from Pike’s Market where I found some tremendous heirlooms at Sousio’s, went to Three Siters Bakery and got some buttery onion rolls with poppy seeds.
I just had a tomato sandwich that was dripping down my arms like a good cheeseburger might — only, in many ways, better … but that will be an experiment later today when I combine the above with a kobe-style beef burger from Uwajimaya …
Life is good.
Hello all. I love eating tomato sandwich with a peanut butter and bananas sandwich. A bite of the tomato sandwich, followed by a bite of the bananas. Also tomato sandwich goes well with hersey chocolate bar.
Fastfood, I get the joke. Please stop.
Its great with Arby’s �Market Fresh Honey Wheat bread and Arby’s mayo. Also For a bit of tangyness add a bit of Arby’s Honey Mustard. And if you’re feeling daring try it with Arby’s �Spicy Brown mustard and it will hit the spot.
shure aint easy misspellin correctly! Phonics does make it easiah ta type wit an axent though
I must be losing my mind. I actually recognized a couple of words in there. Onions and ramps. I don’t understand. I thought people in Morgantown spoke Italian.
