How to make tomatoes look like hearts

So much of Valentine's Day is about chocolate and candy.  Here's a way to do something nice for your Valentine that's healthy!  These tomatoes that look like hearts are a great way to add something special to any meal and it's a fun way to say "I love you."  Whether you use them to dress up a salad or add them as a fun garnish, they can make a special meal extra special or they can be a fun surprise to an ordinary dinner.  It's really easy to do.  Just slice a plum tomato in half with a diagonal cut, flip one half of the tomato around, and put the two pieces of the tomato back together!

Isn't that cute!  Making tomatoes that look like hearts might even be a good way to get kids to eat their vegetables.  Although I'm the only one at my house who's going to eat tomatoes, even if they look like hearts!
