Too Many Tomatoes?

I see the most amazing basket of beautiful tomatoes...plum tomatoes, Brandwine tomatoes ands sweet juicy orange and yellow tomatoes.

I also see a busy Monday.
I am going to make Tomato Pie and Fire Roasted Gazpacho.
The tomato pie calles for 2 1/2 pounds of tomatoes but I am going to use 3 pounds.
The gazpacho calles for 4 pounds of tomatoes but I am going to use 5 pounds.
I will still have pounds and pounds of tomatoes left.
I am going to use this bad boy for a tomato sandwich for lunch.
Another pound gone.

I have tried a reasonable discussion but according to Lucy...
cats don't do tomatoes.

Any takers for the leftovers?
I will even throw in a few dozen peppers and zucchini!!!


  1. I'll get there as fast as I can! I love tomatoes!!

  2. We just picked the first tomatoes of the season and had yummy BLT's. I am jealous of your peppers! ;)
    Have fun baking.

  3. Whoa! That is one big tomato! Did you grow those?

  4. Wow - your tomatoes are beautiful!

  5. Sounds like the perfect start to a low carb regimen!
