Mmmmmmm Fresh Tomatoes

OMG! I am enjoying one right now.... I have loved tomatoes since I was little girl growing up in the Northern Midwest. There are so many reasons to splurge on this wonderful, sensual fruit/vegetable. Each variety is so sensational, Grape Tomatoes, Cherry tomatoes, Romas and Beefsteak, are all totally sensational and unique. Oh and I cannot forget the variety that is green and best when fried. Then.....
there are all the ways to cook a tomato. Tomatoes are the best when cooked for marinara and spaghetti sauces. A salad is not a salad without at least one tomato. Scrambled eggs are fine but add a tomato and plain eggs become divine. Cottage cheese becomes extremely exciting when placed in the middle of a bright red tomato. But of course, they never taste better then when you pull one right out of the garden and just bite into it. Who cares if a tomato is a fruit or vegetable, just pass me the pepper ,roll me another Roma or two and I am a happy woman. YUM!
