Last weekend I bought three tomatoes at the Shop-Rite. I used two to make a spaghetti sauce and saved one to slice up for sandwiches. I had tomato on my sandwich on Monday. On Tuesday I dallied. I looked at the two slices staring up at me between the provolone and the salami. I tempted fate and kept the tomatoes in the sandwich. I lived to tell the tale. Thankfully you cannot get salmonella from tomatoes you grow yourself. So they say.
