First tomato sandwich of 2014


One of holiest of white trash sacraments is the first tomato sandwich of the season. Around here, that means that certain nasty foods are temporarily allowed into the house. For this year’s bread, I chose Merita Old-Fashioned, just because it had a better squeeze on the store shelf than Bunny. The chips, as always, are Wise chips. Wise once made a New York Times top-10 list of best regional potato chips. Mayonnaise on both sides of the bread. Milk would be a proper accompaniment, but this year I had Coke from a commemorative bottle, over ice.

The remaining bread will go to the chickens. I hope it doesn’t hurt them. I’ll finish the chips.

    Squirrels may beat the chickens to the bread. What variety is the tomato in the picture? My “Early Girl” plant is producing, but flavor is a bit bland. Waiting on the “German Johnson.” Will probably make fried green tomatoes with some of the green “Early Girls.” Sara Lee Whole Grain White bread is good so I buy that. Probably not a “real” tomato sandwich by Southern standards though.

    Yum…one of my favorite pastimes is eating a tomato sandwich. I use Dave’s multigrain, bread from WholeFoods: mayo, a tinge of yellow mustard – enjoy!
