I absolutely love tomato sandwiches! Yours looks delish!
I thought it was just me (or a Jersey thing or Southern thing mostly -- as I've lived in both areas). I love my tomato sandwiches with vegenaise, salt and pepper, and bacon bits. Yum!
It's funny you say that about these being a "Southern thing" because I just blogged about that yesterday! http://organarchy.wordpress.com/2010/10/23/back-to-basics/
I spent my summers with my grandfather in Augusta, GA. These were what we always seemed to have for lunch after running around outside in that hot summer sun. I grew up in Florida where we still ate them but not as frequently as in the summertime.
