The Think Write Thursday topic is to tell us what you do when you find yourself with an abundance of tomatoes because ’tis the season!
Well. Can I just say that an abundance of tomatoes is a very very good problem? Because it is. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing, like a homegrown tomato. I mean, really, there are even songs about the beauty of homegrown tomatoes.
So, when I have too many I focus all of our meals on tomatoes. I make grilled cheese with tomatoes and english muffin pizzas. I make tuna melts with sliced tomatoes and caprese salad – which is a bonus because it also uses up the abundance of basil. I roast tomatoes in the oven and I make BLT sandwiches. I make gazpacho and salsa and tomato jam. And if I still have any left I bring them to work.
This makes me quite popular, I must say.
