Simple Pleasures


I realise I might be alone in this one but I sincerely hope not. Two pieces of homemade bread, toasted on one side. Two juicy, fresh-from-the-vine, homegrown, sun-ripened, achingly sweet tomatoes. Wrist-strain inducing amounts of fresh ground black pepper. A Health Warning defying sprinkling of salt. Dollops of mayonnaise that Pret A Manger would declare "obscene". The result is Simple Pleasure, Number 8: The Tomato Sandwich.

I have to agree, a very good simple pleasure. I like to add a slice of mature cheddar in there too...why not, eh?

Oh, yum! This is totally something I would eat when I'm alone as not to be judged for too much salt and mayo.

I love a tomato sanger. I lived off them at university. The salt is basically the key. The amount needs to be verging on grotesque. A scrunch of black pepper if it was like, Friday or something.

I'm going to get all Italian on you here. I love the idea of that beautiful bread and those fresh, juicy tomatoes. However, I would have to replace the mayonnaise with a few slabs of buffalo mozzarella. What can I say, I'm an Italian through and through!

Oh for a tomato that is tasty enough to eat in a sandwich.
