Cream Cheese & Tomato Sammie

The heirloom tomatoes at our farmer’s market are so insanely delicious right now, it brings me close to tears when I take a bite of one. And there are so many different varieties to choose from like Big Rainbow, Green Zebra and Mortgage Lifter. Kenya's favorite are the dark reddish Cherokee Purple variety because of their sweet taste. I think any time kids can put a fun name on a food, they instantly respond more positively than they normally would (and they're much more likely to eat it). Hence, Kenya's love of Dinosaur Kale.

Our family could just sit around and eat slice after slice of these tomatoes totally unadorned (and we do), but for Kenya's school lunch, I add just a smear of cream cheese and two slices of bread to make this simple Cream Cheese and Tomato Sammie something so special it doesn’t even need a funny name for Kenya to gobble it up!
