Tomato Time


tomatoes (1)How many cherry tomatoes can two people eat in a day?

tomatoes (3)Mike has a few on his salads, but I can eat many more than a few.  I like them roasted with a splash of olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar and a dash or two of sea salt and black pepper.  Smush them warm onto a crusty roll and add a piece of fresh mozzarella, some sweet pepper slices, and a leaf or two of basil.  Mmm-mm.  I can eat (actually, have eaten) this sandwich twice a day for days.

  2. "What a minuscule tomato!"

    Sorry I couldn't resist.

    FiftyOdd had a discussion on cherry tomatoes a couple of weeks ago when she was in England. Quite technical actually, her nephew made some observation of the surface area to innards ratio and I waxed poetic on the difficulties of eating cherry tomatoes at a restaurant.

    Your sandwich sounds yummy! I am currently on a tomato hiatus. Something is giving me hives and I thought it was tomatoes, but that does not seem to be the case. I have missed them immensely, truly a fruitable (my attempt at avoiding the fruit/vegetable debate) of the gods.

  5. I actually like the big boys and other full-size tomatoes better, but I have certainly have no problem with cherry tomatoes. As long as they homegrown. They're the best!

  9. My cousin Shirlee, a veterinarian, had two shelties and 5 cherry tomato plants. In her first (and only) season of growing the little tomatoes, she learned that the minute they turned red, the dogs pulled them off the bushes with their "flea teeth" (her words for those front nipping teeth) and ate them without even breaking the skin! Dog treats, they were! The next year she put in Japanese eggplants, which the dogs decidedly ignored!
