Vine Ripened Tomato Recipe


The Baker came home from yesterday's
farmers' market
with
(insert drum roll)
the very first,
vine-ripened
tomato!!


Yes, I put it on a 
pedestal.


Vine Ripened Tomato Recipe

1 vine ripened tomato sliced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste (or nothing at all)

Directions:

1. Sit down and shamelessly eat the whole tomato all by yourself.
2. Hide all evidence that it was ever in the house and hope The Baker forgets toting it home.

ENJOY!

  3. This tomato looks absolutely perfect!!! The grocery store has vine ripened on the vines, then organic, then hothouse, and beefsteak, then just regular, lots of others. Are the vine ripened the best and closest to natural?

  4. HA HA Bonnie.... I like this post... SO cute... You mean he just came home with ONE... Well--since it was only one, I'm SURE that he would want the love of his life (not Oliver but you) to eat it ALL. Right?????? ha ha

    Hugs,

  8. My favorite way to enjoy the REAL tomatoes of summer. Beautiful pictures, Bonnie!

    *Sigh* I don't expect to see any tomatoes at my Farmers Market for a couple of weeks, (and further out for our homegrown) ~ so thank you for sharing, I can't wait!

    And that Beauty BELONGS on a pedestal. :D

  9. It is near perfect and I am not at all surprised it was devoured. My weakness is a burger sized Brandywine on freshly made bread that's spread with good butter and a shake of sea salt. It is a stand alone meal. In another couple of weeks the bins will bulge with local tomatoes and I am standing at the ready. Just don't get in my way. Friendship only goes so far :-). Have a great evening. Blessings...Mary

  14. Oh my goodness that looks like an absolute delight. I eat tomatoes like they're going out of style and am so happy to see someone else giving them the glory they truly deserve (lol!) xo
