Re: The Tomato Sandwich: Summer's Ultimate Food

Here in Northern Virginia we had a cool, wet spring. There was concern that the flowers would be washed off the tomato plants and we would get nothing. But, unlike you folks in the Northeast who have been paying dearly for your licentious ways, we have had beautiful lush tomatoes for some time now at the farmers market. We also have the luxury of a baker who delivers the perfect bread - a sweet, yeasty loaf - from which big fat slices may be cut to provide the perfect envelope for the fresh tomato, cheese and basil.

Although it is highly unlikely that I will ever experience it, this is what I imagine heaven to be - an eternity of fresh tomato sandwiches.
