Ode to the Tomato

Oh, Tomato, how I love thee! This is one of the reasons why I like summer (but I dislike the summer-y weather very much) - vegetables and most importantly: tomatos. I only have one question for you. Do you think tomato is a vegetable or a fruit?

And look what we have here. It seems like the basket fits again. This time for Jimi. I'd never imagine this basket to be the next big thing after cat nip. =D

She does look like a fuzzy cup cake, doesn't she?

And now, I'm gonna do a little survey I saw at Nailed It. Because I have time. =)

1. What time did you get up this morning?
At 9.00 AM. That's when I have to take my meds.

2. How do you like your steak?
In sauce, with mushrooms... well, anything goes. As long as it's not raw.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Iron Man 2

4. What is your favorite TV show?
House, Family Guy, How I Met Your Mother, ANTM, Mentalist, CSI (but the old ones with Grissom) - I really miss Grissom.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Italy or Scotland. Or Bora Bora.

Tuna with extra onions and chives. Aren't you lucky you can't smell my breath. XD

If that's meant to be for the salad, then I prefer it without dressing. But I like 1000 Island dressing when I go to McDonalds. And I don't go there often (thank goodness). That dressing alone has 190 calories!

Thanks for looking!


  1. I loved reading these useless but REALLY fun Q&A's. Oh and veggies are great, I was told tomato's are a fruit, but they still are vegetables to me!

  2. Mm, I love summer for the fruit/veggies. I make a great tomato soup! I also like to eat them like an apple. Yum!

    Fuzzy kitty!!! Look like a stuffed animal in a basket.

  3. Tomatoes are a tricky one for me. Love tomato-based sauces but raw tomatoes have to be really ripe and sweet for me to like them!

  4. You're lucky: you have real big juicy and tasty tomatoes in the balkan. Here, we only have the tasteless watery ones. I only like 'em when I'm in Hungary or Romania. And it's a vegetable:)

  5. Tomatoes taste so great.. I like the small ones Cherry Tomatoes I think they are called :D haha and what is up with your cats sleeping in those baskets :P

    And btw. I gave you a sweet blog award :) Hope you will accept it!

  6. It's a fruit, but it seems more like a vegetable to me. Is it from your garden?

  7. The tomato looks delicious. I think the tomato is a vegetable but I can eat it like a fruit. New Jersey is the garden state and is known for the delicious tomatoes. End of July is when they'll start showing up. When I was younger my Mother had a garden with lots of vegetables in it. I ate so many tomatoes that I had a rash running from my elbow to my wrist. Also around my mouth. My Mother took me to the doctors, I was scratching like mad. It was too much acid from the tomatoes. Like the survey. Your just too cute for words!

  8. i love a big tomato cut into slices with just a dash of salt. they are fruit, aren't they? but in my head they are veggies.

  9. Tomato? Who said tomato? Share some with me, "paradajzarca"!! :D

  10. GIRL! We have so much in common I never realized! But when I read your food choices I was like what the?!! I LOOOOOOOOVE Italian, Mexican or Chinese food and LOATHEEE Sushi. For the longest time I thought I was the only person in the whole wide world who disliked sushi hahha. Its yucky!

  11. I love tomatos too. :-)

    And I hate the heat. *almost dying right now*

  12. @jarleo: No, our tomatos aren't ripe yet. =)

    @Biba: moja mama me je kar nekaj časa klicala paradajzarca. =D

    @Maggie: Really? That's great. Maybe we're like taste twins. =D

  13. i will trade you bunches of polish for that kitty! she is so shiny and fluffy!
