Tomatoes!

What are some of your favorite recipes using tomatoes? My neighbor gave me a bag full of home grown tomatoes, so I made tomato basil soup, and gave him a container full. He liked it so much, he left another bag of tomatoes on my porch!!! What am I going to do with all these tomatoes??

Pico de Gallo !!

Just be sure to seed the tomatoes to cut down on the liquid. It's my very favorite way to use my home grown tomatoes.

MsM, I just kinda wing it as I make it so often this time of year. Basics are seeded chopped tomatoes, diced red or white onion, chopped jalapeno (seeded and deviened) cilantro (optional), lots of grated fresh garlic, cumin, S&P, and fresh lime juice.
Sometimes for dinner I'll add some small cooked shrimp and with a pile of corn chips it makes a meal.

My dad's I'll cook tonight, he would make this then retire to an armchair to wait for the rest of the food to be ready.
Cut tomatoes in half and prick cut surface with a fork. Drizzle with dry or sweet sherry over the entire cut surface. Then sprinkle with salt,pepper and dry marjoram; top with a piece of bacon.Broil 5-7 min.When bacon is crisp and done, top with mayo,sprinkle with fresh grated parm brown under the broiler.He had no measurments but I just add what I think we will enjoy. You can roast tomatoes then use them as a side with meat,a topping for pasta or rice,or even blend them into salad dressing.Cut plum tomatoes in half, use cherry or grape tomatoes whole.Put them in a roasting pan with a few cloves of garlic that you've peeled and mix with a few TAB of evoo. Sprinkle with salt and roast at 400 for 20 min. Stir then retur to oven for 20 min. moreadd a Tab. ofwater if they go dry,,The tomatoes will collapse, brown a bit and start to carmelize. Enjoy.

Pico is a good idea- bf will like that. And I love bruschetta. Does anyone have a TNT bruschetta recipe? I've eaten it plenty of times, but never made it

When I had a lot of tomatoes I made Tasty Tomato Catsup, I canned tomatoes and I made tomato preserves.
