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.
