Tomatoes Anyone?

I've never been fond of tomatoes.  Hubby and I found this cherry tomato plant at Lowes on clearance for only $3!  Hubby takes good care of it, just as he does me. :)  And now, he has me eating tomatoes!  He diced them up and put them in my favorite cucumber, bacon and ranch salad and I loved them!  I'm feeling healthier already. :) LOL
How about you, do you like tomatoes??

i love tomatoes and always have, daddy grew tomatoes and mother canned what we could not eat. many days we had lettuce and tomato sandwiches, or just mayo and mater sandwiches. i ate them like apples, warm in the sun. they taste much better hot from the fields. and i love these little ones like grapes.

Hi Marie, I'm not a tomato lover --but my hubby eats those little cherry tomatoes like they are candy!!!!

I do love the big, homegrown tomatoes in summer --and will eat a trillion of them in season. But--that's about it for me.

Hugs,
Betsy

i will sometimes eat them on a fast food burger or chicken sandwich. but that's the only way i eat them raw. i want them cooked in sauces, usually. :)

Those are some good looking maters! I like them on a sandwich, or salad, but I won't just pick one up and eat it, like my mom and dad would. They'd eat the big ones like an apple.

Your shots here would make anyone like them! I only like tomatoes cooked. And now I am not allowed to eat tomato seeds, so that is so hard, it lets out pizza and so many pasta dishes.

I LOVE homegrown tomatoes...growing up we'd take a salt shaker out to the garden and eat warm tomatoes off the vine. Your salad sounds delicious.

Those are so beautiful and I'll bet they are delicious. I love tomatoes. I like them in salads, BLT's, or just sliced as a side dish. I can't wait until I can get fresh ones here.

Woof! Woof! Jealous that you got tomatoes already. We even started planting. Enjoy your mini tomatoes. Happy Sunday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

I love cherry tomatoes right off the vine. They are summer's candy I think! Glad hubby takes care of both of you so well. :)

I love tomatoes! Especially right off the vine. Sometimes the grocery store ones are kind of bitter tasting. A slice of tomato makes any sandwich taste good, imo. And BLT's are so yummy! The little cherry tomatoes are good in salads.

Yup, I love tomatoes. Especially garden ripe, sliced on a grilled cheese with mayo!

I have never been very fond of tomatoes but I do love a few cherry tomatoes in my salads. I have a friend who takes a zip lock bag full of them for lunch and eats them like chips with her sandwich!
