Tomatoes and more tomatoes!
 
That time of the year & our tomato plants pumping out 8 varieties, so trying to keep on top of it, just did 2 large trays of tomato confit, a few jars worth of tomato chutney and a baked spaghetti, Italian sausage and veggie casserole using fresh tomatoes.
Any suggestions for more ways to use tomatoes would be appreciated.

looks to me like you are doing just magnificently. i don't have a recipe for you, but my mom made fresh tomato juice for us throughout tomato season. she had no recipe either, just blended tomatoes, strained the mixture, tasting, and dding seasonings the result was indescribably delicious--a frothy reddish coral concoction that still has me smacking my lips thinking about it....:smile::smile:

I am so jealous! We just ate our first fresh tomatoe of the season and we won't be having an abundant supply since all of our plants are in containers this year. You might consider trying to make a nice thick catsup from roasted tomatoes. I'm sure you can google a good recipe.

Tuna-stuffed tomatoes. We had these for supper a couple of nights ago. Really, really delicious and amazingly filling. I added about 1/4 cup of shredded 4-cheese blend to the mixture. It really showcased the tomatoes and the tuna filling wasn't gloppy mayoniassey, which really went well with the fresh tomatoes.

Oh my! Those look delicious! I was going to suggest stuffing them too, we are fans of chicken salad. We also tend to eat quite a few grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches when they are really coming on.

really liking the looks of this recipe--the incorporation of the tomato's pulp and seeds with the tuna--nice, fresh, simple combination of goodies, and NO mayo!:smile:heading out to buy italian parsley....
