Best Tomato Sandwich

A simple favorite of mine is  a tomato sandwich with tomatoes straight from the garden. It is quick and  easy to prep. And it is something I think everyone enjoys.

I will often serve this with something like a fresh peach. Light supper, I know, but in hot weather, I have less appetite.

You might wonder what makes this sandwich the best. Easily enough, that is  the basil  and Parmesan cheese which is added. It really rounds out the flavors. I get my  basil from the garden too.

Too  bad I don’t have a cow, or I’d try to make my own cheese. In a perfect  world.

In an  imperfect world, I’d spend altogether too much time cleaning up after a cow. Nothing’s perfect. Except maybe the sandwich. Is there really anything more satisfying than a simple  tomato sandwich?
