Just when it seems like the zucchini flood has finally subsided, the tomatoes have begun the ripening process. I suspect that in two days, I will have more Rutger’s, Roma, and cherry tomatoes than I can handle!
So I turn once again to the blogging community for recipes and inspiration. Soon my mountain of tomatoes will turn into delicious dinners, savory sides, and a pantry full of goodies that will last through the winter!
