Jumped the Tomato
Three weeks ago I declared the end of tomato season. Well, shortly after, BS showed me this contest, I spied 3 beefsteak tomatoes at the farmers market and then today – I received a huge package, from famed commenter “dad gansie,” full of his Jersey-fresh garden tomatoes.
Because the gansie family house had major renovations done earlier this year, dad gansie wasn’t able to plant his tomatoes until late July. So, while we cross our fingers hoping that Fall’s first chill is still weeks away and won’t kill the 20 or so green tomatoes still on the vine, we will — with some luck — enjoy tomatoes well into November. (Tomato themed T-giving anyone?)
So, now that I’ve been proven wrong, and my apartment is bursting with tomatoes, I’m trying to decide what to make. Some initial thoughts are salsa (never made in the blender before), tomato sauce (never done before), and tomato soup (never done before).
Let me know if you have any celebratory (final farewell) tomato dishes.
(Oh, and excuse our masked, caped monkey!)
(Wow – lots of parenthesis in this post, huh?)
