Love tomatoes but looking for new ways to use them? Then check out these 20 Uses for Tomatoes and find all the inspiration you need.
I love most vegetables, but tomatoes have a special place in my heart.
I have love them since childhood. My father always grew them in the garden and sometimes dinner in the summer was as simple as a tomato sandwich.
I have such clear memories of picking tomatoes. Sometimes, when we were feeling impatient we would eat green tomatoes (raw) early in the season.
I still shake my head at that one.
Once we got into the summer, there were always more tomatoes than our family of four could eat. My parents were generous with gifting friends and co-workers with fresh tomatoes, but always saved enough so that my Mom could can them for fall and winter.
I miss those home grown tomatoes but feel fortunate that I'm able to buy tomatoes that are almost as delicious this time of year. (Because nothing is as delicious as Dad's homegrown tomatoes!)
