10 Ways to Use Tomatoes
My garden is FULL of tomatoes. I picked at least 10 today, and there are probably 20 more I need to in the next 2 days. I don't even want to talk about the ones on the vine. Soon I will look plump, round and red if I keep eating them at the rate I have been.
The good thing about tomatoes is that they're good for you and easy to toss into so many different salads, sides and sauces that there's never a shortage of things to use them in. Plus, they are wonderful canned.
