What to do with loads of tomatoes?

That looks fantastic! I'm going to have to look up your tomato posts - my outlaws just went on vacation leaving us to housesit - count 'em - 50 heirloom tomato plants that are hitting their peak yield this weekend. Let the panic ensue!

As for my best dish this summer, I would have to say a couple...a bacon and onion tart from CI - RAVE reviews from the fam and a "quicker" cannelloni recipe. Can attach the recipes if anyone is interested.

My biggest culinary AHA moment was in making the cannelloni, the recipe suggested that the tomatoes be quickly buzzed in a blender. This is my new "cheat" step when using crummy canned tomatoes - even the cheapest taste fantastic when buzzed!
