Tomato Salad

A little while ago, I was reading a post at Gild the (Voodoo)lily about how time gets away from you. That was forty minutes ago. What have I done in this time? I can't exactly say. She had some link about a girl in lucite heels, that lead me to something else (what, I can't remember), then I linked around to some food blogs, and now I am finally here. Point being? Time just disappears. It is not even like sands through an hourglass. The older I get, the less tangible time becomes. I don't even have a minute to feel those grains between my fingers. 1/2 hour seems like nothing when as a child it was an eternity.

Anyway, my point is that tonight. I needed a dinner that took no time. The baby had gone to bed, Maybelle's dad was working and it was just me. We had one "so ugly its a stunner" heirloom tomato from our CSA. So, I sliced it thick, added olive oil, shards of hungarian pepper and purple onions. And, after reading about Dog Hill Kitchen's tomato and mint salsa, I decided to add mint to the lot. Mint really worked with this. Seems like not enough for dinner? Well, I also had some bread to sop up the juices.

I bet the bread with the juices were good :)

I am campaigning for an extra day in the week - somewhere between Friday and Monday. I'm not sure it would make a difference, but it's worth a try.

That butt ugly tomato sure made a stunner of a salad.

Jen (Modern Beet): thank you.

Maggie: welcome, I love them too.

Cynthia: the bread was delicious.

Dee: Indeed, this was a case of the ugly duckling and the swan.
