Look at this beautiful specimen that I picked up last week at the farmer's market. I was a good 4 or 5 inches in diameter and about 3 inches tall. And the colors... red and yellow and orange and peach. It looked like a glorious sunset. I wanted to keep it as a sculptural design element in the kitchen. But we all know it wouldn't last. It wouldn't stay beautiful.
So I took a bunch of pictures. And let it sit there for a day just to look at. Just to gently touch the smooth fiery skin. And then.... I cut it open. I ate it. How did I eat it? With what did I eat this gorgeous heirloom tomato with?
I made a special, out of the way trip to Whole Foods Market to get that Buratta cheese again. I had been dreaming and thinking of it for so long. This was my meal two nights in a row. Pure heaven! So delicious. And if you have not gone out to get that cheese yet, I urge you, do it NOW! You will not regret it.
Oh! I almost forgot. Here are come pictures of the tomatoes at the farmer's market stall and the man who grows them in San Clemente!
