Re: The Tomato Sandwich: Summer's Ultimate Food


I was reared on a tobacco farm in eastern North Carolina. We naturally had a huge vegetable garden and I loved those tomatoes! On the days we barned tobacco I would get up earlier enough to make me a tomato sandwich with lots of mayo and definitely on white bread (we called in light bread), wrapped it in wax paper. I always looked forward to Break Time so I could eat that soggy tomato sandwich -- all the flavors would blend together -- so good! Today I grow Homestead Tomatoes so I can have the same treat. When I eat them it is like being back at my homeplace.
