I had more than one choice, but I had to go with the BBQ'd burgers. How can anyone turn down a nice grilled burger?! Then again, I'm with Uncle Bob on the tomato sandwich! That's exactly how I like it, with mayo and juicy. YUM!

Corn on the cob, the day that it's picked!! Nothing like it. Watermelon at room temperature. Berries of all kinds.

I picked the cold plate because year round we have platters of in season fruits...Anti pasto is a staple for us...My son in law, Ethan and I are watermelon junkies we even have two vines growing in and among the grapes.Sunday's here offer up just about every thing you can imagine...I have each one ask for a favorite week to week and we make sure to fix it. One favorite is fried chicken finished in the oven with garlic,wine,rosemary, and butter, add to that potato salad, our platter of fruit, many weeks of roasted corn on the cob, fix all kinds of ways, green salad to boot or a platter of sliced tomatoes, onions and cucumbers...desserts are usually something icy cold and yummy..My favorite dessert? hugs and kisses from my babies

I like salt on my watermelon, apples, canteloupe, grapefruit and lemons (if I dare, they aren't good for teeth or tummy).

They say admitting you have a problem is the first step, lol. It seems I may have a small problem. Oh well.
