Tomatoes in excess

The flood ended, and our two tomato plants have decided they like dry weather much better. The mosquitoes that hatched after the rain viscously guard the tomato patch, and we each gave a pint of blood to pick a basket full.

Kyle's wondering what in the world we can do with so many tomatoes. My favorite is something I learned from my Belgian family - sliced, with fresh mozzarella, basil (also from our garden), salt, and a drizzle of good olive oil.

We'll also be having lots of spaghetti (my favorite sauce recipe is also Belgian and has tons of veggies), fajitas, and open-faced broiled tomato-cheese sandwiches. It'll be a tasty week!
