Do You Love Tomatoes? I Love Tomatoes!

So far, I have recieved tomatoes from three different gardens this year, which is great because I love tomatoes! They're beautiful and taste good with almost anything; one of my favorite, simple things to do is put them on a grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!

Last week, a new cookbook, The Too Many Tomatoes Cookbook by Brian Yarvin arrived at the library. I was amused to see a whole book devoted to one of my favorite garden fruits. As so often happens, curiosity got to me and soon I was looking to see if we had other tomato books. It turns out there are more than a dozen just waiting for tomato-loving cooks!

So, how do you like your tomatoes?

Last night we made shish kabobs and I put cherry tomatoes on them. They were great. I like tomatoes on nearly any sandwich, but they are really good with avocados.

We make gaspacho(a cold tomato based soup) every summer.

I like them with cottage cheese or just plain.

My husband makes a really good basic red sauce for pasta. It is much better with fresh tomatoes than with canned.

Off all the foods I missed when we lived elsewhere,  I missed our Indiana tomatoes the most.

I can't believe I haven't tried tomatoes with cottage cheese yet! I'll have to do that very soon.
