You say toMAYtoe,I say toMAHtoe……these are almost the end of our tomatoes this year. There are still plenty on the vines but most are cracked like this. So how do you get from this ………..
to this? Fresh tomato cake is so good! I could eat the whole cake! Lots of cinnamon…..yum… & cream cheese icing, heavenly & moist.

So this meme works this way (condensed version):
*You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name.
*If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
* At the end of your post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
OKAY, I’ll play, because I’m a Kind person.
My middle name is Kay.
