  4. All your missing is a couple down home specialties…
    The “Mater Sandwich” good on bread or toast, with cheese or without, a touch of mayo or a full fledged summer sandwich,adding red onions, cucumbers, peppers, whatever your garden grows 🙂
    … 2nd Juicy ripe slicing tomatoes with milk gravy, Good Mornin Ozarks!!
    … and my favorite just eat it like an apple, with maybe a dash of salt 🙂 now that is the best way to eat a good tomato !!

    1. You’re making my mouth water! Can you tell me more about the tomatoes and gravy? So it’s just gravy with sliced tomatoes? Over biscuits?

      I’ve been eating a plain tomato almost every day for a week–you’re right, nothing like it!
