  • Cut up into bowl 1-2 tomatoes; sprinkle with sugar. Add a sliced onion and let sit for few minutes in refrigerator. Then add a couple spoonfuls of salad dressing (i.e. Miracle Whip) and mix well without mashing the tomatoes. When ready to serve, add lettuce and toss well.

  • I enjoyed your poem No longer do I can two bushel of tomatoes or anything a day Half a bushel per day is my limit.

  • I have heard of ground cherries but never chichiquelites. I shall have to try and see if I can grow them. I do have young blueberry bushes and we got a handful of blueberries from them after just planting them last year.

  • Your cake looks delicious I shall try it in the near future I do have a question When you use flavored coffee such as hazelnut. Does the cake taste like hazelnut? I have never baked with flavor coffee. Also is the coffee hot or cold?
