The start of summer and the tomato sandwich

tomato_sandwichFor me, the first day of summer begins when I harvest the first a vine-ripened tomato of the season, slice it into thick slabs, slather Duke’s Mayonnaise (Hellman’s up north) on a slice of honeywheat bread (I know, it should be white Wonder bread), and then gently lay down the tomato slices on their bed of mayo.
