Yesterday, we had to run all over the place to get a bunch of errands out of the way. We had to go to the pharmacy, the hardware store, the bank and then grocery shopping. We did the pharmacy and the hardware store locally, but went to the bank in the next town over.
After we left the bank, I thought it would be a cool idea to drive South into Portland, CT and then swing up through Main Street, Glastonbury. We hadn’t seen this historic area since we were in the car with the realtor.
We made the right onto Rt. 17 North, down in Portland, and drove for a while. We came upon a fruit and vegetable store on the right hand side of the road, I think in South Glastonbury. Now, my nature is to drive right by. I do that with life. So, yesterday, I decided to pull over to see what this fine establishment had to offer.
Well, to my surprise, they had big boxes of tomatoes for only $8. Check them out.
If you know me, you would know that I love tomato sandwiches. Toast two pieces of white bread (don’t get fancy), put some mayo on them, put some thick slices of tomato on them with a dash of salt and you are all set. You’ll love it, trust me.
We had some yesterday and I am beginning to realize that we better eat these things very fast or they are going to go bad. After I finish writing this, I am going to go down stairs and make a few more sandwiches. I think Laura mentioned she was going to make salsa and tomato salad later on. Also, tonight, I am going to blend some tomatoes up and use them as the sauce for a home made pizza. I think we are going to have a bunch of tomatoes left over.
