This is the first of what I hope will be many tomato sandwiches made with home grown tomatoes. I used my first 2 Roma's that I picked this evening. Tomato sandwiches remind me of living in the south. I remember way back when I was young we would go to my great grandmother's house who lived in Clarksville Tennessee (3 hours from Memphis) to visit. She and my great grandfather had a vegetable garden and although I don't really remember much about the garden, I do remember that tomatoes were served at every single meal. The most common way to serve tomatoes as a side dish was to slice them up on a plate and throw them in the middle of the table. No matter what the meal, they were awesome with a little salt and pepper. Later my mom hipped me to the tomato sandwich. My mom always made those with a big meaty tomato, Miracle Whip, white bread, salt and pepper. My version is with a good whole grain bread, real mayo, sliced Roma, Romaine lettuce and black pepper.
Don't forget the napkin - this is one juicy sandwich!
