At Last!

The happy day has finally arrived for me to slice into the first of my Beefsteak tomatoes.  There is nothing like the feeling of harvesting your own home-grown juicy tomato!  The only problem I have now is how to use it.  Beefsteaks are notoriously large, so there are a lot of possibilities.

Should I make some fresh pico de gallo?  A tomato-basil salad with fresh ricotta?  Chop it in a salad?  No...for this first one, I think we'll just slice it and eat it as is...home grown is yummy enough without any adornments!
