You say tomato, I say I want a sandwich...

I was in quite the predicament at lunch today.  I had lots and lots of gorgeous tomatoes fresh from my garden.  And those babies were calling my name.

But w were out of white bread. And everyone knows you can't have a tomato sandwich without white bread.

So I had to improvise.

We had tortillas so I thought I could make a tomato wrap.  But that sounded all kinds of wrong.

We had lettuce so I though I could use the lettuce as bread and make a sort of PF Chang's type lettuce wrap.  But that sounded all kinds of wrong as well.

And then I spied the....

hamburger buns!

Perfect, I thought!

Hamburger buns are white-breadish...more white-breadish than tortillas and definitely more white-breadish than no bread at all...I'm looking at you lettuce leaves!

Turns out the hamburger bun is the perfect size and shape for a tomato sandwich. There was only one slight problem.  Because there's a bit more bread in a bun, you need to use a lot more mayo than with a regular slice of bread.  Never has using more mayo been an issue for me so I charged on ahead with an extra dollop of the white stuff and y'all - I just had one delicious tomato...burger?!


Isn't she a thing of beauty?


Going, going, going, GONE!
And if you're wondering if I licked that little blob of tomato and mayo off the plate, I'll never tell!
