Thinking about the over ripe tomatoes I bought at ALDI I was reminded sometimes the best things for us in life do not always come wrapped up in a pretty package. No shiny cover, treat at the bottom of the box, can replace the wholesome goodness and sustenance from what is really meant to develop us. Occasionally, the vegatable that looks ugly, battered, and is all bruised, is the sweetest, most juiciest in the bin. One just needs to set aside preconceived notions everything has to be 100% perfect on the outside to have the most enjoyable, succulent experience with life ! By the way the overripe tomatoes made a hell of a tomato soup on this chilly morning.
