The garden has been dumping tomatoes on us the past few weeks, so I've been throwing tomatoes at every dinner: from BLTs to margarita pizza to pico de gallo. Here are some of our favorite finds. The images belong to the original blogger of the recipe as noted below each image.

Pinch of Yum: Drunken Chicken Marsala
I doubled this and brought it over to my parents for dinner after an afternoon of swimming. My dad does not always appreciate my experimental recipes, but even this received his approval.

The Pioneer Woman: My Favorite Pizza
We had some eggplants from our CSA, so I googled recipes and found this one. The girls smelled it and said, "yay!" but then looked at it and said, "eww." Then they ate it and loved it.

Apparently I ate too much ice cream and s'mores during our August vacations and didn't try enough new snack recipes. As it gets cooler, and I can turn on the oven again, hopefully I'll have at least one treat to share next month. As a consolation, here's my favorite chocolate chip pumpkin pancakes recipe, which you'll obviously need in the next two months.
