Why You Should Refrigerate Tomatoes and Ignore Anyone Who Says Otherwise

Tomatoes: the most controversial topic to hit Serious Eats this week. Let's just be happy that we're not letting the tomatoes rot on our counters and then throw them at others, right?

Again, for some people (who can pick them and then immediately eat them or have access to a Farmer's Market every day), it is easy to just use it that day and no, of course, you wouldn't want to store yours in the fridge.

For the rest of us who have a longer time that we need to space our bounty out? It isn't going to hurt them that much, and you don't have to eat them! We'll be happy to. :)

Why You Should Refrigerate Tomatoes and Ignore Anyone Who Says Otherwise

I'll elaborate more: the Farmer's market here is once every two weeks. I adore tomatoes, in season. So ... I have a tendency to go overkill. But ... I can't eat ALL of those delicious things that quick. Good for preventing scurvy, bad for a varied diet.

Hearing that it is ok to put them in the fridge to extend my joy at least a few extra days? Oh this makes me feel so much better about the next time I go overkill. :)

I wish I could draw little hearts around this article.

The Food Lab Turbo: How to Make Lighter Tuna Noodle Casserole With Just One Pan (and No Knives!)

Ok, I love the story behind you original distaste, and then how you learned to rethink it. And may haps ... may haps I will try this. I too share a distaste for warm tuna. And with your different takes on it (no cheese, lemon, not so heated) make it a little more palatable to me. I'm up for this. Thanks for the suggestions!

Upgrade Your Frozen Daiquiri With Fresh Fruit (and Vegetables!)

I like the cut of your jib, fine lady. The Savory Cucumber and Green Chartreuse Frozen Daiquiri looks ... amazing. Right up my alley.

So You Want to Pitch a Food Article? What to Do (and Avoid)

Can I second Farley? Is this the place where we can write odes to Kenji's locks? Will there be a section for that?

Max, I really enjoy this - especially with the summer winding down, I think you guys will have a lot more articles coming up and giving people advice on HOW to pitch a good one is a great idea. :)

Ideas in Food vs. The Turkey Club Sandwich

I love your idea Kenji! It adds that crucial extra layer! Yum yum yum.

Ideas in Food vs. The Turkey Club Sandwich

Nah, if I want a turkey sandwich, I order it. If I want a club, I want that layered experience, actually. The crunch in-between with the bread, the attempt to be less messy eating it despite it being harder to do so because of the extra layer of stuffs. There is actually a difference, when you come down to it. This would be excellent AS a club, too, with that extra layer and a thin layer of bread.

I mean, yes, they explained THEIR reasoning, but ... that's still not what a club is, that's what a turkey sandwich is when it comes down to it - they thought about a club and it sounds like what they REALLY like is a sandwich. And that's fine. And again, this is a damn fine turkey sandwich, but it is a turkey sandwich, not a club.

I'd say it would be hard to re-imagine cornbread, but they will defy me and next week it will be re-imagined and people's minds WILL BE BLOWN.

Ideas in Food vs. The Turkey Club Sandwich

Ocean: the relevant part: "It is notable for having two layers which are separated by an additional slice of bread." This sandwich is missing that extra layer, that additional bread!

So, that's why several people are saying "good sandwich, but not quite a club."

I think it does indeed look delicious (pork belly and turkey thighs, oh my!), but am also in the "this is not a club" camp.

Gazpacho! The first time my son tasted it was when he swiped it from my bowl at a precocious 1 year old age - he still loves it now. :) Unfortunately my daughter is allergic to raw tomatoes, so it will have to be just between my older kid & I, but it is an amazing gazpacho.

9 Must-Try Vietnamese Drinks

So many of these are already on my list. Which makes me feel good about my tastes. :) Also, we picked up a fresh coconut at our farmer's market for me to drink the other week. I was proud when my two year old insisted that she needed to drink more of it than me!

Low-fiber HELP!

Ok, I tried to do it on my own for the first week and a half, but it looks like I'm on this for a little longer, so, HELP me SE talkers, you're my only hope!

I ended up in the hospital earlier this month for tummy issues and on release was given a low-fiber diet for at least a week. I'm struggling as I'm usually a salad and veggie person. Anyone been through this before and have suggestions? We've been doing A LOT of chicken soup and toast and what-have-you.
