The First Tomato

You know those meals that are so incredibly good that you don't even want to talk in between bites? I just had one of the meals right here in my kitchen. Today was the day the first tomato from the garden was ready to become my ultimate lunch...a tomato sandwich. I picked the Mortgage Lifter Heirloom tomato moments before it hit the bread. As soon as I plucked it from the plant, I could taste it.
With some white bread, a slice of Vidalia onion and a little Duke's Mayonnaise, I created one of the God-given joys of summertime in about 3 minutes. The tomato was still slightly warm from the backyard sunshine and the onion was gloriously sweet from the South Georgia soil.
Life doesn't get much better than this.
