I've got fresh tomatoes coming out of the garden as well. I make tons of fresh marinara sauce (just olive oil, garlic, onions, tomatoes and fresh basil). But, my favorite way of eating tomatoes is just ice cold with plenty of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper :)

yummy, that sounds good too, you guys! I just got done making "3" bean salad too. I put extra stuff in it besides the kidney beans, green beans and yellow wax beans (which came outta the garden too, omg they are sooo much better than canned beans lol). I also put in green bell pepper, fresh broccolli, sweet red onion and cucumbers with the vinegar/olive oil/sugar/salt/pepper dressing and boil it 5 mins so the sugar emulsifies. Its sooo good that way!    I also make a creamy dill cucumber salad with frsh garlic cloves minced up tiny.   Im still trying to find a 100th different thing to do with all the squash here! Ive got squash coming out of my ears here lol.  I usually fry it and put seasoned bread crumbs on it, or stuff it the same way you stuff bell peppers with meat, rice and tomato sauce.    I have no corn harvested yet, its not quite ready to pick.  Theres also the following in the garden this year: tomatoes, cukes, broccolli, potatoes, onions, pea pods, beets (nowhere near ready to pick yet), radishes, turnips, spinach, brussel sprouts, gourmet lettuces, okra (first year growing it, no idea what im gonna do with it!), green & wax beans, yellow squash, zuchini squash, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, a few other variants i cant remember of squash, lemon cukes, watermelon, canatloupe, eggplant, hot peppers, bell peppers, and i cant remember what else, lol.   I love veggies! It sure is a lot of work though when you're in a drought! I have to water it constantly lately!
