I am sorry that it is a lot of extra work. Fresh diced toms are so excellent in an omelet.

Yes they are, and they are not even that much work, how much would I need 7-10 cups of tomatoe at the most. But it is my first cousins 60-th birthday night before and I am not about to miss it. And I simply will not have enough time in the morning.

I would just use canned diced tomatoes, but be sure to strain them, maybe keep them in a colander. They keep their shape well. There is a lot of moisture in tomatoes, which can make things watery.

Good quality canned tomatoes are much better tasting than supermarket tomatoes. Especially in the winter. In Minnesota.

Just buy good ones and drain them well.

Canned tomatoes will definitely taste a bit different. Moreover, they will be the preserved ones. So not sure whether the taste will be preserved or not. But you will be surely missing the tatse of fresh tomatoes juice

Charlie, you are in charge, so why not change it up a little, use the drained tomatoes, get good ones, then add some sliced green onions, cheese and salt and pepper. And maybe a little parsley.less work if you get already shredded cheese...simple tasty and it will save you time. I think anyone who has the nerve to complain is rude and needs a swift kick. Good luck and you sure are special for all the cooking you do.
