    Until you guys came along, it had never occurred to me that recommending tomatoes that are “heavy for their size” could be interpreted as a body positivity slogan and let me just say I am ALL IN.

          Watched this and ran into the kitchen, pulled out some out dated flatbread, opened a tin of 🍅 and covered in queso fresco. Pathetic in comparison but was satisfying.
          I will try this when my tomatoes get big and ripe enough.

                  Baking soda will also leven but at a higher temperature. This is why it's great for putting out grease/oil.

                      They have pretty nails but it drives me insane. I work in the food industry and wearing polish is a huge no no.

I've heard more than one chef mention how tomatoes are only good a certain time of year. Is this a big city thing? Do y'all not like/eat greenhouse tomatoes or something?? I live in Iowa, and I have never heard anyone talk about tomatoes like you guys do.
