Real fresh, delicious tomato decadence, how would you splurge???

OK, so I was off in the land of delicious tomatoes and I couldn't help myself: I overbought. (I'm sure you'll understand when you realize I live at over 7000 feet in the Rockies and home grown tomatoes are scarce in August, let alone the beginning of July.)

Anyway, in my enthusiasm, I bought 5 pounds of these perfectly ripe beauties. I've eaten about one fifth of them sliced or out of hand (and enjoyed every slurping moment), but I think they may turn on me before I munch through them at this rate.

So what would you do? I'm kind of thinking gazpacho, but don't have a killer recipe; do you? I am also VERY open to other ideas. (Caprese is probably out because I only have access to rubber mozzarella and sub-standard basil.) Sharing is an option, lol.

Thanks from your pal the blissful tomato pig.
