Tomatoes and A Cold Dinner

A moment of silence, please, for the last garden tomatoes of the year.

They were so good that we just ate them plain, with salt, accompanied only by bread, butter, cheese, and grapes. Sometimes that's all the dinner I need.

The cheeses weren't overwhelmingly fancy, but they were better than what I usually eat and went well together. We had a Maytag blue, a gouda, and a cheddar. I've read that good cheese shouldn't be eaten cold, and I found that leaving the cheeses out of the fridge for an hour before dinner really did make them taste better.
