…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
SMOKED BUFFALO MOZARELLA cheese
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,
