Sliced Tomatoes

You are going to say that Chris has run out of ideas. But wait, I have a half dozen ripe tomatoes in my garden right now and it’s all I can think about (The wife is in Germany). There are 6 beautiful, orange bulbs of super sweet acidity just waiting for me not to screw them up. Sure, I could make a pasta with an amazing sauce, or combine them with other fresh vegetables and maybe some feta and enjoy a huge salad. But the simple, straight forward sliced tomato is a meal in itself. Or, I could have sliced tomatoes with my eggs in the morning, or with soup at lunch or even with fried chicken at dinner. If you have fresh, ripe, just picked tomatoes there is nothing better.

So you can say that I flaked today by offering up a sliced tomato, or you can thank me for a gentle reminder about one of the best fruits on God’s green earth.
