Fresh Tomato Sandwiches Saturday Lunch on Longmeadow Farm
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
7 ingredients
4 servings
The back door swings shut with a loud bang, people are balancing fresh back porch iced tea in frosty glasses, with ice tinkling and bobbing around, in one hand. In the other hand, clutched tightly; holds a sandwich that heralds the start of the long hot summer. A big shade tree has several old lawn chairs randomly placed beneath it, and our friends hurry to plop down, with a sigh of complete satisfaction as they begin devour their pleasurable, but simplistic tomato sandwich, and sip the sweet iced tea.
