Day 92: Summer Tomatoes

~ nutrition estimate updated 2007 ~

Like strange-looking planets with odd-shaped moons, but they're just yellow Summer Tomatoes.

With the unusual use of malt vinegar (I have a bottle for parsnip fries, a favorite fall dish), I thought this would end up, well, a bit unusual, a little different.

It's good. It's just not special.
