Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

I always have so many ideas for my Monday Edition, but by the time Monday rolls around I have forgotten them all! Last week, I decide to tell you all about my new lip gloss. I am totally in love with it, and I am convinced that it would look great on any skin tone! However, as I was making my lunch on Sunday I realized there was just something else I had to share with you!

Sunday was a lazy day for us. We went whitewater rafting this weekend, so we were exhausted on Sunday morning. We were bad, and we skipped church. In fact, we spent most of the day in our PJs. It was glorious! Being a low key kind of day, I decide to just make myself a sandwich for lunch. I decide on a tomato sandwich, and as I was making it I thought to myself that things don't get much better than a tomato sandwich on a summer afternoon! That is when I decided to share the recipe for the perfect tomato sandwich with you!

Now I am serious about my love for tomato sandwiches. I guess it is kind of like Elvis with his peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Elvis and I have that fat kid bond! Any way, the first step to a perfect tomato sandwich is home grown tomatoes. If you don't grow them yourself, buy them at a road side stand or from the local Farmer's Market. The grocery store tomatoes lack taste, but I guess they will do if that is all you can get! I used the tomatoes my dad brought me. He grows hundreds of tomato plants every year, and they are indeed the best! The next thing you need is real mayonnaise. Save the low fat stuff for another day. You also need fresh white bread (no, not wheat) along with some salt and pepper!

Assembling your sandwich can be a little messy, but it isn't difficult. You will need to peel and slice your tomato. Trust me! It is so much better peeled. Put mayo on both pieces of white bread. Don't skimp on the mayo. We are rolling fat kid style today! Next, layer your tomato slices onto the bread. Add salt and pepper. I always sprinkle my salt and pepper on the tomatoes instead of the bread slices. Put your sandwich together and enjoy! Of course, your going to need a lot of napkins! The true sign of a really good tomato sandwich is a few little juicy stains down the front of your shirt! I know it may not sound like the most appetizing thing, but don't knock it until you try it!

This recipe has been brought to you by the fat kid gourmet! Enjoy!

P.S.-If you are interested in the lip gloss I mentioned at the beginning of the post just check back tomorrow! I will introduce you to the perfect lip gloss then!
