I Heart Mater Sammiches

Nate and I have been watching our first Pink Ponderosa tomato ripen on the vine for days now.  I finally picked it today.  It weighed 11 oz, a light-weight in the world of Pink Ponderosas, but it made one heck of a tomato sandwich.

I have always adored tomato sandwiches.  When I was in elementary school, I remember spending summer days at my best friend's house.  Her parents grew tomatoes, and when asked what I wanted to eat for lunch, my response was always a tomato sandwich.  To me, a tomato sandwich is bread, mayonnaise, sliced tomato, salt, and pepper.  Adding anything else is sacrilege. 

How do you eat your tomato sandwiches?  It's okay; you can tell me.  I won't pass judgment.

Happy homesteading,



  1. Can I say that I've never had one?! I'm almost ashamed to say it, but I shan't be ashamed for long. I will make one very, very soon.

  2. I was reared on French baguettes with tomato and brie or camembert. Might be sacrilege to you, but it still taste DIVINE! :P

    This Good Life

  3. tomato, basil, olive oil, fresh mozzarella, sea salt and pepper is one of my favorites!
