Goodbye Backyard Tomatoes. It Was a Wonderful Summer & Fall!


(photos above) So many marvelous sandwiches begin - and often end - with thick slices of homegrown tomatoes and mayonnaise. or Veganaise.
Draining assorted, just-plucked tomatoes for a tomato pie.

The chopped tomatoes are layered atop slivered onions in a pie crust, covered with a thick paste of shredded sharp Cheddar, mayo and fresh herbs and baked for half an hour until bubbling and brown.
