You Say Tomato

I Say Tomato

Yesterday my mom gave me a very generous bagful of garden fresh tomatoes. Apparently the plants she grew in her flower bed produced wildly this year and she’s been inundated with all manner of the ruby red produce (thank you again mom). This makes me insanely jealous as I so desperately want to have a “green thumb” and unfortunately can barely even keep a window box of hearty herbs alive. I wont even get into the state of my houseplants…

Now that I have my own table full of tomatoes I’d love to hear some of your ideas on what I should do with them. Is a homemade pasta sauce the best way to go, or maybe salsa? Please take a minute to post your favorite tomato recipe suggestion in the comments, but please hurry! I wouldn’t want them to go bad before I can enjoy them.
