I've been eyeing this little guy for days. Last night I decided it was at it's peak of ready-to-eatness. And it was delicious! Even though this is a cherry tomato (Sweet 100) I found that I spent an awful lot of time analyzing the taste and texture if this one little bite. I noticed the sweet flavor and the tart flavor and the firm skin. I rarely think this much when I'm eating. I'm sure this happened because I took the time to grow it and I was trying to enjoy it for as long as possible.
It made me realize what "mindful eating" is all about. Taking the time to think about the energy that went into making our food is much easier when we grow it. But, it sure would be nice to make an effort to do this with everything we eat.
