A Slice of Heaven

OK - that might be a slight exaggeration, but only slight - my dinner tonight was AWESOME!

Today was "Strawberry Day" at the Piedmont Triad Farmers Market. It's usually a fun excuse to go and walk around and get free strawberry ice cream - plus get the freshest local strawberries you can get! Today, but the time I arrived with my friend Crystal - the ice cream was gone total bummer! But, I still got some strawberries - and let me just tell you they are YUM-MY!

I also purchased some tomatoes.... I love tomatoes! I "suffer" all winter long eating red things that are forced in some plant somewhere and then they sell them as tomatoes, but today I got the REAL DEAL! I bought some from a local grower (which always makes me feel like I'm helpin’ out the local economy!) and for dinner tonight I had a tomatoes sandwich! DOUBLE YUM-MY!! Now, I like mine on just plain ol' bread, some mayo (not that low fat stuff either), salt and pepper. Every now and then I'll throw on a slice of cheese.... but tonight - just yummy goodness of the 'mater, mayo, salt and pepper! IT WAS HEAVEN! The best sandwich I've had since last summer for sure!

And for course, strawberries for desert! I love summertime!

Sounds like heaven! Now I have to go get myself some tomatoes and strawberries! We are blessed that we live so close to the farmer's market.

The only thing more perfect would be to eat this "slice of Heaven" while laying on the beach with a nice summer breeze!!!! I do love summer!
Love the pictures of you and the kids. Very Cute!

Dawn, you're right it's great to live so close to the farmer's market!
Amy, I agree that it would be wonderful to be laying on the beach and enjoying the sun, breeze and sand! But alas - I'm here eating yummy tomatoe sandwiches with my kiddos! :-)
