I loved the whole idea of doing a Sunday Supper around saving the wonderful bounty of summer. For the last few years, I have grown my own tomatoes, and love doing it. There is just something so satisfying about growing your own food and then using it in a dish. 
 
I have grown peppers for the last two years, but my tomatoes have always been my #1 favorite. We love tomatoes just about any way you can prepare them. Fresh, roasted, grilled, smoked, you name it and we will eat it!

 

 
It is actually kind of funny that I feel the way I do about tomatoes now because growing up I despised, and mean with a passion I despised them. My Mom got so frustrated with my tomato boycott that she actually sat me down at the table and made me eat a cherry tomato. 
 
Oh, I fought it for quite some time, but finally gave in when she told me that I couldn’t leave the table until I ate it. 
 
Soooooo I ate one, and it didn’t stay down long. After that, my Mom left me alone when it came to my tomato aversion.
 
There is actually a song by Mason Williams entitled “Tomato Vendetta” and it made me laugh every time I heard it….
 

This song’s about the Tomato Vendetta,
and the tale of a man who let a
Hate for tomatoes cause him strife,
He lost his job, wife, home, car, kids, and life.

He’d go downtown to buy some groceries,
He went because his family was hungry,
He always bought red meat and potatoes
But he wouldn’t touch those ugly tomatoes…

He didn’t know why he hated tomatoes,
They were just as ugly as far as ugly goes,
There in the store, when no-one was watchin’,
He’d set melons on them and laugh at their squashin’.

One night after shopping and on his way home,
His loathing for tomatoes cut to the bone,
He just couldn’t stand the strain any more,
He vowed to destroy the Tomato Horde.

He turned around, and viciously hopin’
The grocery stores would still be open,
His eyes grew cold, for he was a man,
Whose Moment of Truth lay close at hand.

All over town, in every store,
Tomatoes were hurt and spilled on the floor,
Big melons, and turkeys, and large sacks of grits,
Were dumped on their sections to mash them to bits.

At the last store he finished his plan,
But on his way out, a delivery van,
Full of big ripe Tomatoes drove in and hit him,
Tomato Vendetta had claimed its victim.

The incident of the Tomato Vendetta,
Caused a sensation that was something that the
Public could relish, and readily snatch-up,
Popularly known as the t-o-m-a-t-o k-e-t-c-h-u-p….

But in my adult years, I have learned to love those fresh little red balls of joy, and coming from Southern California one of my absolute favorite ways to nosh on them was in fresh pico de gallo. 

Oh boy, I can’t even imagine how much pico and tortilla chips I have put down over the years. I could actually make a meal of it if I had to. Give me an ice-cold Corona, fresh tortilla chips, and some of this gorgeous pico de gallo and I am one happy camper!!
