One Deep Breath-Recipe

southern style big boys~
pluck from the vine, slice thinly
sprinkle with sugar and salt

Every summer, my wonderful neighbor shares the bounty from his tomato patch. A couple of times a week, he crosses the street, large paper sack in hand, filled with tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers for me. He always has a pocket full of Magic and Molly’s favorite biscuits as well. We have a nice chat, and then I slice up a plate of warm tomatoes, and sprinkle them with sugar and salt, just the way my grandma did. Yum 🙂

  1. Oy, yoy, yoy! Each prompt response this week is a (sweet) torture. I.e., food I can’t eat, for one reason or another. I love tomatoes this way, but I break out in hives. Thanks, though, for a lovely recipe and picture. 🙂

  2. Sugar? Hmmm. Haven’t tried it like that. I, too, have a neighbor who trots over two or three times a week for several weeks, giving us delicious tomoatoes. Nice poem.
