The tomatoes are finally coming in – fast and furious! That means time to figure out yet another way to eat them up.

Today, I blended up three gallons of tomato sauce so Victor can make sauce on Wednesday. I’ll probably have at least another gallon by then so I’ll be doing a lot of canning Wednesday night. I just core and chop and put into the blender – skin and all – and into gallon jugs and into the ‘fridge.

I took a couple of the absolute best ones and stuffed them with a wheat berry filling. It was a bit of a clean-out-the-refrigerator salad. My favorite kind.

It had 2 cups of cooked wheat berries – I just put a cup of them in a pot, cover with water, and boil for 20 minutes – along with:

  • a diced yellow zucchini
  • 1 roasted red pepper
  • 2 ears of corn
  • scallions
  • a small jar of artichoke hearts
  • fresh basil, thyme, oregano, and parsely
  • S&P
  • olive oil
  • fig balsamic vinegar

I just hollowed out the tomato and filled it with the salad.

These tomatoes are just so damned good that I am really looking forward to eating them in all of their various guises! There is just no comparison to supermarket tomatoes. None.

I work late tomorrow so I’m thinking of something simple for Wednesday… maybe grilled?!?

We shall see…
