    As a kid, my mom would cook tomato omelet for me and I hated it… not wanting to disappoint her, I suffered in silence. Still can't stand it to this day… :lol:

    -

    Speaking of tomatoes, in my late teens I worked on a project where I was welding a steel tubular roll cage. I was using an oxy/acetylene torch outside in broad daylight, so when I took off my welding goggles the red-hot joint I had just welded looked normal. As I lifted the full weight of my body with both arms out of the roll cage through a small top opening, I momentarily lost my orientation and grabbed on to the very spot that just got welded. All I remember was a big almighty scream as I tumbled out of the cage and fell to the ground - that and the strange smell of grilled hamburgers! :eek:

    A friend of mine heard the commotion, ran over to see what the heck was happening, and then ran away while yelling tomatoes, tomatoes!! She was in as much shock and emotional panic like I was, lol!

    Anyways, she came back with two cold tomatoes straight from the fridge, split them in half and started scrubbing them on my seared, curled-up palm. I protested from the pain and the stupidity of the exercise (apparently some old wives tale she heard about from somewhere). My left hand started to smell like pasta sauce!!

    The result?

    No blistering, no scar, no loss of dexterity and function, and healed totally within two weeks without medical attention (although I did continue the tomato treatment the following two days for no other reason than it was soothing)…

    I kid you not!

    a few decades ago i read that Graham Greene, late in life, gave up eating tomatoes when he learnt they were related to poison ivy, and he died shortly after

    just quoting

    Mushrooms. The flavor they add to stuff like sauces is good, but I cannot abide biting into a piece of one. It's a texture thing. The squinchy feeling on my teeth is beyond horrifying.

    That is the weirdest thing I ever heard .
    One simply does not accidentally put tomatoes in a sandwich, anything other than tomato and mayo in a sandwich, is accidental.
    How do you make a tomato sandwich without tomato?

    But then again, must be the way I was raised. Had to eat everything on my plate like it or not and wait to be excused from the dinner table.:D

    Nothing like eating a tomatoe right off right out in the garden off the vine just like an apple.:cool:

    Oh my, I LOVE tomatoes, especially a fat ripe Jersey tomato right outta the hand with a bit of salt. I can go through 3 or 4 of those on any given summer day.

    Or sliced with a bit of olive oil.

    Or sliced with some mayo and salt and pepper.

    Or chunked in a salad with onions, hearts of Palm and oil and vinegar.

    Deeeeelucious! Pure summer.

    Can't stand tomato soup though.

    Loves me some vine ripened raw tomatoes. I've made sandwiches of nothing but bread, mayo and thick slices of fresh tomatoes with some salt & pepper. Gazpacho made with over ripe tomatoes...mm...mm...good!

    Now those sun dried monstrosities? Yuck!

    As a tomato hater, I can tell you it really is quite common.

    I once worked in a deli next to a girl who could care less what went on anyone's sandwich. Being willing to eat anything, she couldn't see why it mattered to others not to have certain things on their sandwiches. So whenever she made a mistake, she gave it to people anyways although I'd pointed it out to her. If someone returned something she wouldn't make them a new sandwich either. She'd just take whatever it was off - including mayo.

    I love tomatoes and I'm okay with just about any other type of food. The only exception is Cumen. Anything containing this vile spice makes my stomach turn - immediately. Horrible stuff.

    One of my favorite memories, is summer corn and tomatoes from New Jersey road side stands. I can eat a really good tomato, just like an apple. Wonderful stuff!

    Modern supermarket store bought tomatoes are wretched.
