One day, Tommy and I had a sliced tomato on our plates or we had a salad. At any rate, we had fresh tomatoes. I noticed something on his plate that he was not eating. It was about a half inch high. I asked him what he was not eating. He said it was tomato seeds. He told me he hated tomato seeds. That membrane is probably the best part of a tomato and where all the flavor is for me.
In the past I have read about canning tomatoes where the instructions include de-seeding tomatoes before canning. I thought this was plain weird, so I canned tomatoes with seeds. I won a blue ribbon for canned tomatoes at the fair and the tomatoes in the jar had seeds. So, it appears it is proper enough.
Since that day, I have noticed he leaves the clear, juicy, and seedy part of the tomato on his plate. Of course, I have not mentioned it since he told me hates the seeds and the soft membrane surrounding them.
Do you dislike tomato seed and membranes? Do you avoid them or discard when you eat tomatoes or can them? Is it the taste or texture? I may start getting the seeds and membranes from his tomatoes before I serve them to him.
One month, I received a copy of Ladies Home Journal. I have no idea why. But, I enjoyed the freebie. The next month I received a copy of Cosmopolitan. I did not enjoy it as much as I did years ago. It was nice having reading material in my hands that I did not have to pay to get. I cannot stand to throw out magazines, so I always give them to someone I know who always passes on magazines to others. I am waiting on my third month of a free magazine. Have you gotten free magazines in the mail for no apparent reason?
The glass remained on the carpet because I was dizzy when I walked on Monday. The dizziness sort of came and went. I was afraid it would come while I was bending and into the glass. Besides, I was too busy taking a nap and then it was dark. There is no light in that area of the room! Okay, that is my excuse. It is Tuesday night and I actually feel like I might die. No cleaning up glass for me. I only slept one hour last night, and then could not take a nap today.
We have not gotten one robo call from a car warranty company since carriers were ordered to stop allowing the calls through. Or, something like that. Now, the phone rarely rings which is okay with us. We both have a cell phone and he has a home phone, so we were hit hard. No more. Have you noticed fewer calls?
How do you feel about tomato seeds?
