Congrats on 1/2 year of cooking threads. This is a great thread and I look forward to it each week.
Six months already. It doesn’t seem possible, does it?
As of last week we’re up to 494 recipes!
To check out all of them in one spot (sort of) click onto my nickname and the threads are all listed (recap post links for each week)
Would be cool to have a “Tea Party” cookbook - that would be up to the Robinson’s - this is their Kitchen Pantry :>)
No way! Six months!?
(Wow, yup, six months.....we haven’t even scratched the surface yet...lol)
Like I posted above - so far we’re up to 494 recipes (as of last week) Amazing!!!
Now, this is a very complicated and time consuming recipe but since home gardeners are beginning to bring in their tomatoes I thought I’d add it.
For the few tomatoes that didn’t get sample tested in the garden and actually made it into the house - Slice a sun warmed straight from the vine large tomato into thick slices. Take two slices of cheap (cheap is a must) white store bought bread and slather them with mayo. Add the tomato slices. Salt and pepper optional. Form a sandwich. Now, the tricky part is to eat it over the sink to catch the juices. Paper towel recommended. Serves 1/2 to 1.
I love tomato sandwiches, Cucumber ones, too.
True story. Years ago my folks had a small bar and grill. Regulars would sometimes bring in some surplus items from their gardens and leave them on one of the counters fir us to use. Things we didn’t need or use we would leave out for others to take.
One day a regular comes in with a cucumber and hands it to my sister asking her if she would make him a cucumber sandwich. My sister had never heard of such a thing, but I didn’t realize that at the time. She just kind if looked at him funny and he encouraged her to make it. She brought back the entire cucumber, unpeeled, uncut, between two pieces of white bread. The guy thought she was joking and about fell off the bar stool laughing. We had to explain to her that it gets peeled, sliced and then places on bread that had mayo on it.
I told her you do that with tomatoes, too. I even do it with sliced onions.
My wife loves tomato sandwiches too, but the problem that we have is that we love fried green tomatos and just can’t let them ripen.
**June 7 - National Chocolate Ice Cream Day**
"Oh noes, Drips! Get those!" :>)
That’s a riot! LOL
Today we resume our quest for a green tomato plant. Wifey grew one last year and it produces nicely sized green tomato slices that are breaded in cornmeal and deliciously fried.
The fruit are bred to stay green and be cooked.......
Thus, you can have your sandwich and the fried green tomatoes too!!
