Tomatoes are coming out of my ears!

I've got lots on my to do list, but I had to take a break from it all yesterday to process all the tomatoes I plucked from my parent's garden the other day. And boy did I process! Two huge tubs and then some, was blanched, peeled and squeezed. It was rather nice to be in the safety of the kitchen while hurricane Irene blew and spit and cried right outside the window. I watched movies on my little kitchen TV while I was elbow deep in a sink full of tomatoes and it was quite cozy.
All of these tomatoes now fit neatly into the fridge and await Ben to work his magic and transform them into his delicious yummy I could (and do) eat it with a spoon! Yum!

I hope everyone survived the storm unscathed!
All you easterners were in my thoughts yesterday!

mmmm!!! Have you ever made tomato and eggs? Thats one of the things I would do with all those tomatos! But homemade sauce sound pretty heavenly!

I made it through, just fine! Tomatoes and sauce sound right up my alley! I love to make my own, as well!

I can't believe you have all those tomatoes...I have two tiny cherry ones that are just turning ripe. Everything is late here this year - a much cooler summer than normal.
