Summer Delight

One of my most favorite things of summer is looking forward to eating some home-grown tomatoes!

If there is anything different in the world,it's the difference between store-bought and home-grown tomatoes!

Usually we are blessed by a number of people in our church who grow a garden each year and bring us some overflow of their summer bounty(We can't have a garden because of the deer). I have a friend who has given me a few tomatoes the past few weeks and we have SO enjoyed them........I think it could be a sin!

I have looked at some recipes for tomatoes and you can fry, broil, bake, turn them into tomato
sauce, salsa, or one of my favorites, tomatoes and okra! However, I believe my very favorite is the 'ole bacon and tomato sandwich! Doesn't get much better than that for a summer supper!

How about you? What's your "tomato" favorite?

I love BLTs,'ve made me hungry for one! I like the one at McAlister's--it's on good bread.

Hi Judy!

I, like you, LOVE homegrown tomatoes WAY better than store bought. You're exactly right, there is simply no comparison. To be honest, my favorite way to eat a tomato is just like an apple. Bite into it and sprinkle it with salt. So yummy!!

Have you ever tried tomatoes with Cottage Cheese? It is wonderful, just put some cottage cheese on a slice of tomato (you can salt and pepper)it is great!
