When I was a little kid I had a green plastic pedal tractor with detachable wagon trailer. Although my driveway was only 50 feet long and 20 feet wide I was pretty darn sure that I was a farmer when I sowed my corn on that driveway. I chewed pieces of dead grass I found in the yard and ran around without a shirt on. Sometimes I would make my friends tow me in the wagon while I distributed the seeds… distributing the seeds is harder than pedaling, you know.
I remember there was a big red horn on my tractor, which I preferred to honk as much as possible because I didn’t have to ask Mom’s permission to honk the horn like I did in her Mazda.
A couple of decades later and I can now honk the horn in my Toyota as much as I want without my mother’s permission. Unfortunately sometimes I exercise my freedom with the elderly and 15-year-olds, and my mother probably should have reign over my horn usage… but I need to get home and eat Stuffed Tomatoes for dinner! Get out of my way!
Stuffed Tomato (from Cheap Healthy Good)
1 medium tomato
1 5-ounce can tuna packed in water, drained really well
1 tablespoon capers, chopped
Fresh parsley to taste, chopped
Zest of 1/2 lemon or to taste
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
So simple! So cheap! I could eat this every night for the rest of my life.
