Clint Eastwood's advice in "Dirty Harry" that
opinions, like certain body parts, are best kept to
the article to the left: One exception to the no-refrigeration
rule is sliced tomatoes. If you happen to only use half of a
tomato, you shouldnt leave the rest of it on the
counter. Store cut tomatoes wrapped tightly in plastic wrap
or in an airtight storage container. (sic)
I love tomatoes, but that whole tomato sitting in
my kitchen starts to look funny after a few days, and after
a few more I throw it away, promising myself to do better
next time, just as I do when I toss bananas that I never got
around to eating.
the Amazon website one day, looking for something else, I
spotted a plastic tomato storage container that looked just
like a great big red tomato. According to the information,
sliced tomatoes last longer than whole ones, and this
handy-dandy plastic container would store them for several
days in the refrigerator, or they could be frozen for
Saver by Gourmac.
||I ordered one, actually two, I seem to always do
that, something my mother always did, It was amazing
what we found in the attic after my parents passed away.
I set about trying out this tomato thing.
The first thing I ran into was how to cut out
the stem, not the neatest surgery I'd ever done. But
then I remembered a little red tool in the drawer I
bought several years ago to remove the stem on
strawberries. I found it and gave it a try, it worked
like a charm.

A while ago, I heard from a website visitor who
said he was trying to keep a blog going, but suffered from "writers
block", wondering how I kept at this all these years. I
told him about something Ernest Hemingway said, "Amateurs
write when the spirit moves them, professionals have to get
up every day and knock it out". It doesn't have to
be an epic best seller, I'd even written an article about
mother's frying pans. Mom passed away in 1985, and
when my Dad died in 1993, the household possessions,
including the cookware, went in various directions with
family members, and I wound-up with the two big frying pans.
I can add this topic to the list of things Hemingway never
travel blog to learn more about my life on the road.
