Turn To Tomatoes

Tastiness? Turn to tomatoes, turn-taker.
Tackle Texan tomato tureen, tastemaker.
Take tomatoes, Tabasco to taste, tuna, tie
tagliatelle turbans, take truffles, too, try
timely, tubby tomato types tenderize.
Tasty tomatoes take twofold time, temporize!
Texan tourist trap tainted tomato trash? Tacky!
Tunisian Tupperware tomato tatters? Tatty!
Titillating, terrific Taiwanese
tangy, tongue twisting tomatoes tease
tomato-titbit-taster’s teeth tenderly,
taste tremendously, temptingly, toothsomely.
