more more more
This week one of our local grocery store had Roma tomatoes or plum tomatoes on sale 25lbs. for $6.99! This sounded good to me and I didn't hesitate in going to pick one up. I'm sure the box was more than 25lbs. but I didn't weigh it to confirm. Just happy in my belief that it was an even better deal than I originally thought! As I previously mentioned our tomato crop this year was the pits! I also prefer these smaller tomatoes to the larger field tomatoes, there's more 'meat' to them and I find they hold up better, so I was pretty excited about it all.
Of course we made another double batch of salsa...
We're also attempting to dehydrate some of them. We've never done this before so it's a bit of an adventure. Hopefully it works!
We've also used some up in a batch of corn relish and some amazing Spanish gazpacho.
Others are disappearing in the normal way of salads and sandwiches.
The rest will find a nice frozen home in our freezer until they get plunked in a spaghetti sauce, chili, goulash, or whatever yummy dish we need tomatoes for during the winter months.
