Summer delights

How to start your day in the NC Summer :

– Brew Coffee
– Slice up locally grown cantaloupe
– eat cantaloupe and drink coffee

Mellons are in season. I have another cantaloupe as well as a locally grown watermellon. If I’m lucky some of the tomatoes my in-laws planted will be ripe today, and I can have tomato sandwiches later today. And for the record :

– Slice Tomato into rounds like for hamburgers
– spread a thick layer of your favorite mayo on two slices of white bread
– cover bottom slice of bread with tomato slices
– Salt
– add a slice of mild cheddar or american cheese
– close sandwich and eat

Man, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    our first tomato was ripe yesterday. it was a tiny cherry tomato, just barely ripe, but it came off the bush when i touched it. it was too small for a sandwich, so jeff and i split it right out in the garden. it was a tiny bit tart, but very sweet and crisp.

    You need one thing to make that sandwhich perfect.

    A couple of slices of Vidalia onion.

    You have no idea how happy I am that those things are finally in season.

    I do a little salad thing with those and some equal sized balls of freshwater mozzarella, ev olive oil, balsalmic vinegar, and shredded fresh basil & oregano. It takes about 12 tomatoes, though, for two people. SO about a week for you. *grin*

    I cannot wait for tomato season to get into full swing. I need some romas for sauces and to freeze for chili. Now if only I could thicken a pasta sauce properly…

    ooooh… this sounds very promising. yeah, we should have a dozen in a week.

    Must use Duke’s for tomato sandwiches. It’s a moral imperative.

  6. alchemist says:

    Only when I can get it. Otherwise, I go with Helman’s.

    This is the instant indication that I am not technically a southerner, despite my locale.

    Hellmens only. Duke’s is the antichrist.:)
