Been up to my ears lately with homegrown cherry tomatoes and some great produce from a family’s farm. So we’ve been eating them up, here’s a few things I made.

This has by far been one of the best years I've had with tomatoes.

I'm getting a large crop myself with only 4 plants. Just wish the buggers would start to ripen!

Thank you Jake, here’s how I make my bruschetta


When I make it for pizza/flatbread I add diced onion and garlic to it.

If I just make the tomatoes to eat as an appetizer over toasted/grilled bread, I omit the onions, and rub a fresh clove of garlic on the bread as soon as I pull it from the grill. You could definitely add onions if you like, even some fresh chives over top is good too!

Love those little guys, we get them here called wild Everglades tomato’s. They grow all over the yard, even had some in my neighbors gutters. Great for just about any dish, but on crispy bread with some evolved, wow!
Everything you made looks fantastic!

Thanks Ray! It was still pretty good for being how hot it was. I don't normally eat a lot of pasta in the summer...but I have no room to complain when your high temps are 120F

Damn Joe! That's not a bad problem to have! Great looking meals!
Steve, you're right. I don't really get tired of tomatoes in the summer, especially once winter hits they're pretty lousy.

This has by far been one of the best years I've had with tomatoes.
Thanks norman, it's been a hot and dry summer here in PA.

Man that looks good!
Thank you Brian!

Thanks again Jake! I make bruschetta quite a bit, especially when tomatoes are at their peak. I don’t get tired of them...and sometimes dinner is just bruschetta and beer.

Thank you Al, when everything is super fresh, simplicity is the way to go!

Thank you! It’s a great summertime treat!


Definitely some good looking dishes you made!

Ryan
Thanks Ryan, everything was great. I’ll make a few more batches of tomato soup to freeze for the cooler months


Man that all looks great Joe nice job!
Thanks John!

Man that is one fine collection of tomatoey food porn!!!! All of it looks top notch. I am intrigued by the soup. Did you post a recipe for that? Does it freeze well? I have tons of cherry now too. Picking a gallon bag every 2-3 days.
