A Summer season Tomato SandwichJoy the Baker

2 min read

By the point I used to be 21 you couldn’t persuade me to eat these two issues: A dill pickle, and a uncooked tomato. Whereas I nonetheless stand by the dill pickle, I’ll eat one occasionally if in the midst of a fried hen sandwich. The later, fortunately, I’ve seen the error of my methods.

I used to be on summer season break from school when my mother handed me half of her sandwich. I noticed nothing however white bread, an obscene quantity of mayo, salt and recent cracked pepper. My school weight loss plan consisted of pizza, pop tarts, and the oatmeal cookies I’d bake up once I missed dwelling. I used to be in no place to move up actual meals. So, I took a chew.

The nice and cozy juice from the backyard tomato spilled down the webs of my fingers and I licked a glob of mayo/pepper from the nook of my mouth. This wasn’t only a tomato sandwich; it was a holy expertise.

“You haven’t had a tomato till you’ve had a summer season tomato” and he or she was right, as mothers are typically.

The nice and cozy tomato sandwich is the rationale I develop tomatoes in my very own backyard each summer season. So, I can sit out on my again porch with a tomato sandwich, heavy on the mayo, gentle on the bread. If I’ve any luck, the tomato continues to be sizzling from the solar. And this summer season, there’s been loads of luck. My backyard has by no means been so overrun with tomatoes.

Right now I’m utilizing a sq. from a focaccia I used to be testing however on a normal day it’s white, nation bread, or buttermilk. Don’t toast the bread. You need it tender. Lather on a layer of mayo to your desire. 

Slice a backyard tomato. Right now this Mortgage Lifter (sure, that’s the title of the tomato) was prepared for the taking. Deep purple all over. Sprinkle with flur de sel, and crack pepper straight excessive. The juices will begin flowing.

Layer on high of the mayo and shut the sandwich. You gained’t remorse one minute of this expertise. I’d recommend a pairing of weight loss plan coke and salted kettle chips. A crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a wedge of brie will work too. It’s informal. It’s costly.

Now take it outdoors – a again porch, a backyard, the entrance door, a close-by park. Eat. Slurp. Lick. And be grateful.
