Last night’s was the first tomato sandwich of the year. Not GrowDammit tomatoes, but fresh and from a farm.
I am a tomato sandwich purist. This means no lettuce, Farmer Ted. The only health concession I make is whole wheat or grain bread instead of white. Mayo (not salad dressing…Mayo), salt & pepper. If you’re from the south, then only Duke’s Mayo will do. If you’re a Yankee, then you don’t know what you’re missing and whatever your preferred mayo is acceptable. If you’re a transplanted Yankee, go find yourself a jar of Duke’s. Let me stress that a little mayo goes a very long way. You want to enhance the sweetness of the tomato, not smother it in mayonnaise. Same with the salt & pepper. It’s all about the tomato, hence the name of the sandwich.
Next…Ted has tackled the hall ceiling again. I imagine that’s what he’ll be doing for the next 3 days as well, since the forecast is rain, rain and rain with some thunderstorms and some rain. I thought the saying went April showers? And, look for a new poll shortly.
