Now I am not sure that most people would classify a tomato as chic. But I am not most people…and I think you know this. I went to the Farmer’s Market this morning and found this gorgeous specimen just waiting to come home with me. The farmer told me that she and a few others on the table were the first from their outdoor vines. YES! Let tomato season begin!!
She is posed on one of my salad plates– if that helps to give you an idea of her curvy plus size. Sadly, she has now been sliced into…sacrificed on toast with avocado, pepper and truffle sea salt. Thank you, my chic friend.
PS This post is dedicated to Karen…she who grows the best tomatoes ever seen in blogosphere. Heaven knows, I can’t eat one — or pick one out!–without thinking about her tomatoes posts.
