Things to do with a tomato

Song of the day (inspired by photo above)(what have I done????) S2
Happiness runs in a circular motion
Thought is like a little boat upon the sea.
Everybody is a part of everything anyway,
You can have everything if you let yourself be.
by Donovan Leitch

Just for the heck of it, I decided to google the above title phrase.

In Alabama there is a tomato fest; and they even crown a Miss Tomato!

In Lemington, Ontario they celebrate the tomato each year as well.

I found this quote from the St. Petersburg Times, Tampa Bay, Florida

"Here is a real truth: When we do the right thing, when we change our ways, even just a little, to live in such a way as to lift up the best in ourselves and others, the tomatoes will taste better. I guarantee it." Bill Maxwell

From Mississippi State University Extension Services: May 12, 1999. Tomato spotted Wilt: Bad things happen to good tomatoes.

Of course there were numerous recipes and things to do with tomatoes, sauces, and ketchup.

I must say, however, NONE appeared to care for this veggie/fruit as much as 2 crazy Grandmas on vacation. For us it represented much more than salad makings or spaghetti sauce. Look closely, my friends; there, by superman's left foot! It is indeed the representation of all that we stand (snicker) for:

Tomatoes: they're not just for salads any more

Rooms on trip: $70/night

Airline ticket: $384

Gas for rental car: $500

quality time with a tomato: Priceless
