Remember too much squash? Well, too much tomato is happening now in my house. My friend up in Huntington Beach grew these amazing tomato trees. She had way too many tomatoes. Her recommendation is to dehydrate them and turn them into sundried tomatoes that you can freeze. You can do this in your oven.

The solution I seletect: Gazpacho. Homemade gazpacho from fresh tomatoes is especially delicious. I was facing a situation where all my tomatoes ripened at once and were starting to go bad. I made yummy gazpacho and took it to a concert in the park.

We drank it out of big red cups and added toppings of croutons and avocados. Delicious!

Here is the link to the recipe I used. It is very simple to make but you do need a blender.

Another favorite dish to make is ratatouille. The Silver Palate cookbook has my favorite recipe.

Enjoy those tomatos!

My friend Marina gave me these photos. Look at these crazy tomato trees!
