A little history, growing up everyone in my family ate tomatoes. I was the odd one out. We had tomatoes just sliced on a plate, tomatoes in stews and hot dishes. My dad grew tomatoes so they were plentiful. I could not get over the consistency of the tomato and the taste never won me over either.
A few months ago I really started liking avocados. Cassi makes a really good guacamole and I would always push the tomato parts around, or try to not scoop them up. Both Mouse and Cassi would tease me about my distaste for tomatoes. I decided to take the chance, grow up a bit, and stop moving around the tomatoes so they don't end up on my chip. Mixed with all the ingredients in the home made guacamole I can stand them. Then this week I ordered a chicken sandwich with no tomato slice. The sandwich had guacamole which is what I really wanted. When the sandwich arrived the waitress apologized for the tomatoes in the guacamole, but I said that was alright, can't make guacamole without tomatoes, right!? The sandwich was good, and the small pieces of tomatoes were good, not overpowering. Next step is a cherry tomato...maybe...
