I’ve prepared a couple meals with our newly ripe tomatoes this week. On Monday I made a salad with romaine, tomatoes fresh off the vine, and lots of chopped cucumber from my parents’ garden.

And on Wednesday night, we had some of the best BLTs ever!! Can’t beat ‘em. The fresh tomato was just utterly awesome in there. I can’t believe I used to not like tomatoes! Maybe it took trying a good, in-season tomato for me to realize how wonderful they are.

For the BLT, I used frozen bread dough that I baked the night before, and layered with mayo, romaine, and three slices of bacon per sandwich.
