Here are some of my jump ring beaded bracelets.

Oven Roasted Tomatoes - AFTER

This is what they look like when they come out of the oven.   They taste just like candy!!!

Oven Roasted Tomatoes - BEFORE

What to do with all those tomatoes - roast them - I made two pans of roasted tomatoes, some garlic and banana peppers.  Slice the tomatoes, sprinkle with salt, pepper and herbs de Provence then drizzle with a little olive oil.   Bake in a low, slow oven (225 degrees) for 4 hours.  After they are finished, they taste like candy.  I put them in a zip lock bag and in the freezer for later.   This is what they look like BEFORE
