[Sca-cooks] Too Healthy to Post?

Mmmmm...I looove fresh tomatoes, but I can't grow them. In the 
Texas heat, if I forget for one day to not water them twice a day, 
they die. I have a brown thumb!

Anyway, I have found something healthy that my daughter loves 
(she's 10 and picky). It is really not a recipe but she loves 
toasted open faced sandwiches. I always put a couple of slices of 
tomatoes on it before I toast it and it brings out the tomato 
flavor beautifully. I just use ciabatta bread cut into sandwich 
size and sliced down the middle and layer whatever kind of pesto I 
have on hand, lunchmeat (usually turkey), a couple of slices of 
tomato, and asiago or provolone cheese. I pop it in the toaster 
and I have open-faced pannini! 

One of my favorite pestos right now is a sun-dried tomato pesto. I 
buy it in a jar at the grocery store in the winter to use on 
sandwiches instead of mayo. During the summer, I go to the 
farmer's market where a guy has a stand selling nothing but 
different varieties of pesto based on whatever is in season. He 
has a great sun-dried tomato chipotle pesto that really adds some 
kick to a sandwich! Maybe you can dry some of your tomatoes and 
turn them into pesto!
