The toxicity of social media

In Everyday Living, In Columbia, Opinions, Opportunities, People on August 11, 2015 at 9:27 pm

Before it was removed from a local facebook site about local events, happenings, etc. the string of comments is an exhibit of the vicious, vile, hate-filled, rumor mongering that can happen on social media sites. These comments were captured as screen prints earlier this morning.

“That time of year when you have a good-old-fashioned Tomato Sandwich like every other day of the week …maybe even more? It’s here!” – The Tomato Geek

tomato timePHOTOS: The Produce Geek

Anatomy of a Summer Tomato Sandwich

  1. Thick slices of Vine Ripe Red Tomatoes or Heirloom Tomatoes (slicer varieties)
  2. Salt and Pepper
  3. More Mayonnaise than you would normal slather on a sandwich
  4. Bread. (Soft Potato Rolls or Thick-cut Toasted Bread are my favorites)
    • Optional Tomato Sandwich Bling:
    • Cheese – Cheddar or Cooper Sharp are winners
    • Dijon Mustard for the other piece of bread not covered with Mayonnaise

Here are more delicious produce notes from The Produce Geek. U-m-m-m! You may want to visit the Website (click on the logo) and take another peek. The Produce Geek’s also got other recommendations there!
