A Southern Summer Treat!

I have not been posting for almost a month, because of family issues.  My sweet hubby and I both are very tired, stressed, and  have been spending a lot of quiet time by ourselves until we can fully recover.  Hopefully, we have found a resolution, and one that is good for us and our entire family, especially son Michael.

I have missed blogging, and my blog friends.  I decided today to start out with something simple...a real Southern treat that I have loved all of my life.  It is not a recipe, but just me sharing one of my favorite things!

Our very first tomato of the season was ripe when I went out this morning...so I picked it, and made my myself...and hubby, a "mater sammich"....better known as a tomato sandwich.  Here's what you need:

2 slices of soft, white "store bread"
Duke's mayonnaise
Salt (I am a purist, and do not use pepper. but I give you permission to do so ;) )
1 red, ripe, juicy, delicious, homegrown tomato, sliced.

Just slather the mayo on the bread, add the tomato slices, and add your salt...and pepper, if you insist.  Enjoy

I will post more later.  I am glad to be back.


  1. Good to hear from you again, Patsy. I hope everything will be fine with you and the family.
    Tomato sandwiches were the secret of our survival in the summertime when I was growing up.:-)

  2. It's great to have you back, my sweet friend! You and Bobby deserve a delicious tomato sandwich...yummy comfort food.

    1. It's good to be back. Thanks you. Love you, Miss Kitty!

  3. Good to have you back! I can't believe you are picking your first tomato when my plants are still only about three inches tall. I have a long wait for my sandwich!

  4. I hope things come around for you and your family. I've had a lot going on, too, but hope to be back with some regular posts as well. Like you, we've gotten our first ripened tomatoes this week and they sure put a smile on my face.

  5. I love me some mater sammich! One of my long time favorites! We still have a long wait for our first maters...but I'm looking forward to them! Thanks so much for sharing at the Rock N Share! Blessings.

  6. I love tomato sandwiches. I make my own bread but when the tomatoes are on, I have to go buy a loaf of store-bought white bread. Just not the same on anything else.

  7. I can't wait for fresh tomatoes from the garden and to make this sandwich. Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)

  8. Hello Patsy...this Southern treat sounds truly wonderful...thank you for sharing...
    Hope you are feeling better too and feeling the benefit of some quiet time...it always helps me,

  9. Hi Patsy....I noticed I haven't seen you recently, but did not know you were having family issues. I hope things will get better for everyone soon.

    You may know that my family grew tomatoes in a greenhouse for many years, so my family had enjoyed many tomato sandwiches.

    Thanks for showing even a simple meal can bring joy in times of stress, for meal time is a great way to enjoy family time together. Again, I hope all is well with you.

    Sorry I am so late in visiting....the last few weeks have been crazy for me....but I wanted to stop by to thank you for visiting my party.

  10. I love tomato sandwiches. Nothing but bread, mayo, salt & pepper and of course great vine ripe tomatoes. Nothing says summer more! Simple but yummy. :0)
    You lucky lady~mine don't have tomatoes yet but hopefully soon.
    Your newest follower~can't wait to look through all your recipes.

  11. Patsy its good to see you!
    mater sammich, yum :D my Mum called them that always while we were growing up. God willing Mum will be 80 this july & still makes a mean mater sammich :)

  12. As a child, I would eat beefsteak tomatoes like an apple!

    Thanks for visiting me at A Season for All Things. I'm your newest follower and look forward to finding some great recipes!
