The Best Sandwich I Ever Made!

…or maybe I was just really hungry….

… but O. M. G. – I made the BEST tomato sandwich for lunch yesterday!

This was after staring at the overflowing bowl of tomatoes I picked the day before that is sitting on the counter with the abundance that is finally coming out of my tiny, little neglected 😦  garden.

(I AM going to do better next year – –  – she says every year!)

Oh  why do they have to come all at once!?!  Wouldn’t it be nice to have about five or six a week ripen throughout the whole year?  But NOOOOO – – – we get 30 at once for a couple weeks – then NOTHING!

And homegrown ones are so much sweeter than what we can get around here in Western PA the rest of the year at our local grocery stores.

So I plopped a couple slices of honey whole wheat bread in the toaster, smeared some mayo on them, then sliced (now this is a WHOLE new experience for me!!) some


I bought last weekend at Penn Mac in the Strip District.

Oh people – let me tell you….  actually – I can’t describe how YUMMY it is!!!

My favorite before this was smoked gouda, but WOWZERS, did this make for a good tomato sammie!!  (and I’m thinkin’ I must have a thing for smoked cheese…)

On top of the sliced cheese, I layered some fresh basil as if it were lettuce (oh how I love the anisey, licorice-like taste and smell of fresh basil!), then finally the tomatoes, a pinch of salt, and smooshed it down.

And seriously – I’m sorry I did not get a very good photo, but I did not have the patience to check it before diving into it, and then it was too late for any retakes. 😐

So I hope I described it well enough to get you to try.  A simple, but oh so delish sandwich for a hot summer lunch or dinner or snack!  Heck – – – I’d even eat this for breakfast!


Cheers & Hugs,

  1. That looks beautiful. I must say I LOVE tomatoes. I have them virtually with every main meal (even breakfast sometimes) and sometimes, I can get through a packet of cherry tomatoes as a snack. Tomatoes are the best things ever, especially for the weight concious like myself. Big Kudos to the humble Tomato. 🙂


I love hearing from you - hope you'll drop me a line
