Love Apples

I cannot believe it.  I bought V8, pineapple juice, and tomato juice yesterday.  At 4 pm I opened a two quart bottle of tomato juice.  Now, at 4 am, it is almost all gone. I have drunk almost the whole thing...in 12 hours.  I must have been starved for tomato juice.  It has been a long time since I had any.

Grandfather told me that when he was young, just over a hundred years ago, tomatoes were called "love apples" and were considered poisonous. Now they are a treat, and their juice, to me, is addictive, I guess.

I am looking forward to the V8 and the pineapple juice.  Hopefully they will last more than a day.

I remember reading about something like that, it took a famine for the Italians to use the Tomatoes and a War for pizza palors to pop up in the U.S.

I love tomato juice with a splash of worcestershire sauce.  Yes, I go through phases when I simply must have it.  Tomato juice is wonderfully good for you too, better than booze!  Hugs.  Terry x
