Let's Talk Tomatoes

Well, my tomatoes are starting to produce fruit.  And that leads me to my next predicament...what do I do with them all?!?  I plan on canning some tomato juice and some  tomatoes...but that can get a little boring--ya know?'s time to link up (this is my first link I hope it goes smoothly) Get out those recipes and get them posted...I have at least 25 tomato plants that are going to turn red soon!  If you don't have a blog...leave your favorite recipe in the comments section. My husband is on the hunt for a really great salsa recipe...Thanks for Participating!

If you enter a blog address, please make sure it is to your post, not the home page.
Also, I know I don't have a button, but if you would please link back...I would appreciate it!

I haven't written a blog post in ages, so I think my "readers" (aka my family) would be upset if I only posted a recipe. :) So, here's my salsa recipe:

2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 jalepeno, seeded and chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
the juice of one lime

This makes a yummy, simple, mild salsa/pico de gallo.

Amanda, I put the link to my prize-winning Green Tomato Soup with Cornbread Croutons recipe which was in Bon Appetit Magazine and is now owned by McCormick Spices.

Tomato Spice Soup is my favorite way to use up red tomatoes!

Always wanted my own little garden!

Thank you Erica and Cynthia! Jacinda, It was nice linking up with you...I look forward to doing it again. Mrs. T. I grew up with a garden, but haven't always had one as an adult...I love it though! I'll be praying you can have one soon! Thanks for visiting ladies!

Cindy's recipe looks good!! I have a couple I will get to you that we do - salsa and homemade marinara sauce.

Also we cut out the stem and freeze whole with skins. Then, we thaw them and the skills fall right off (yay - no boiling!!) and use our tomatoes in soups and chili throughout the winter. We freeze the in gallon bags.
