OK as the saying goes- you know you are Southern when…….
OK I admit it, I am one of those damn Yankees. I have been told that this term describes a Northern that comes down South, find a job and stays. And yes I am definitely one of those and very happy about it! I have moved down here from New York, Long Island to be exact about 16 years ago. I am surprised that the time has passed so quickly.
My granddaughter had claimed I am have been losing my Northerness and I think I have just tipped that balance. I have always loved fresh tomatoes on sandwiched but had never eaten a tomato sandwich till I moved down here – fresh sliced tomato and mayonnaise and salt & pepper between 2 slices of bread ~ yummer!
Fresh Georgia peaches- oh do not let me go there, nothing like a sweet juicy peach where the juice drips down your chin!
OK getting back to the subject above- I know I am not totally Southern but this past weekend I had found a recipe for Fresh Tomato Pie and I think I am in heaven. It is not as pretty as the site’s pie but it is scrumptious and loved making it and it is fast and simple. See how the author of the site has a beautiful top? I am jealous but mine tastes awesome and is my first one. You can visit the site and find the recipe at A Garden for the House.
But I do not eat grits. 🙂
So, how do you like your tomatoes?
