that looks good, I have never been a big tomato fan, but I have been trying to eat them anyway in little bits and the other day I had a salad at the restaurant that had these tomatoes on it and it wasn't too bad :) I will be using them more.
Hope you all survive the storm passing over, always a worry about trees falling with high winds.
