Fresh Garden Tomato - De-lite-ful lunch

Coc turned me on to "Insalat Caprese", and I've become almost addicted to it. But today I decided to try something different.

My tomato vines are producing at a rate I cannot begin to cope with, but that's oO.K. So for llunch today, I went the simple route - to my delight!

Ingrdients:

1 warm summer day
2 shady garden table
1 whole tomato - must be vine ripened!
1 sprig of basil
1 glass of your favorite white wine
1 salt shaker
1 napkin ( essential for juicy tomato
chunk of your favorite chees and/or bread (opti9nal)

Place last four ingrediants on second ingredient during lunch period of 1st ingredient.

Then sit down and munch away, adding salt to the tomato to taste. Nip a little basil, then tomato, then masybe a little wine, some cheese.......

Try it - I think you'll enjoy it as much as I did. Sometimes the simple tings are the best!

heavy drinking + hereditary small bladder = 1.3 "pit stops" per hour

...and you've always asked yourself what good math would do you later in life...

Oh, YUM!! Never mind the pit stops . . . we'll fly, we'll fly!! C'mon, elf - you round up the salt shakers while I hunt down the cash bag for the pilot and Carnivore charters the plane!! Of course, if the pilot has ANY taste whatsoever, he/she will be more than delighted to take his/her pay in tomatoes!!

Ok, ok - geez, I'm so easily lead astray leigh!!! My salt shakers are packed and actually I think if we all planned to do old coot's aforementioned meal one night that would be one I would have time to "cook"! LOL

My son is a wiz at math (now, that was a poor choice of words here :oops: ) I'll be sure and tell him his future use for all that knowledge!

What happened to you guys? I waited. Your loss!

This getting older stuff is a nuisance: I halluniated all morning: to me it looked like it was raining hard, with donner und blitzen, and "water, water everywhere..". That, of course, could not be true, for it never rains in July in Southern California.

Fortunately, the hallucination ended about 11:30. just in time for me to set the table for my llunch, after getting the fresh loaf out of the oven.

See what you missed?

We've been through this salt thing before. If folks wish to derive pleasure from imagining they can detect a difference in the flavor of various forms of Sodium Chloride, hexck - enjoy.

Actualy, yesterday I used gorse Kosher sslt (doesn't get much purere than that), and "nasty" Morton's today. In both instances, the result was delicious - which was the whole point, y'know?

I know I'm one of those weird ones oldcoot - those unrefined salts just taste different to me and kosher salt has a much better flavor than Morton's. I know, I know, maybe it's a "texture" thing but I am going to scour for some of the salt our guest suggested. Might even have to carry it in my shop!!

Thanks for the info guest - I sure hope you sign up to become a member - that way you can have a name and we'll know who we are talking to. You will also be able to have an edit feature on your posts and you can send and receive Private Messages.

Glad you stopped by - please come back. And when I find that salt I'll post my reply.
