What to do with tons of tomatoes

They predict a frost advisory tonight. So my neighbor sent over a huge grocery bag of tomatoes. Most were green. I have a bunch in all the window sills in the kitchen and the back bedroom. I may line some up in my bay window. Hoping they ripen up quick. Then got to decide how to use them. I thought about blanching them. Peel off the skin. Then freeze. Or make pasta sauce. A small amount I will make some fried green tomatoes. It was a surprise all the tomatoes. I got in from work. Little while later door bell rings. Who's there now. Wow it was a big Aldi's grocery bag of tomatoes and a few more cucumbers.

Yum! I love tomatoes and will be so sad when ours are gone.
Homemade salsa is so good. My Mom used to make a relish with green tomatoes.
Enjoy your tomatoes!
