Using up frozen tomatoes & peppers

Ah - but these are frozen tomatoes. They quite lose any shape once thawed. Flavor is awesome and they make for great stews & soups & sauces, but zilch in the shape category. Still - I'll give them a try; the flavor will be fabulous. Who knows what happiness lurks in a roasted frozen tomato?! Thanks!!!

Thanks - a simple question, and your ideas sound yummy. Feeling a bit overwhelmed by their quantity, and not wanting to lose them to freezer burn. Thank you!

I have a bounty in my freezer from summer's tomatoes and sweet peppers. Any good recipe ideas to use them up? Maybe a good tomato/pepper soup? Or...? Thank you!

Thank you so much, everyone! I have peppers coming out my ears this year, and never grew the pimentos before. Looking forward to this evening/making pimento cheese...and will freeze the rest.

need (real) pimento cheese recipe

I have a a lot of ripe and ripening homegrown pimento peppers, and need a recipe for pimento cheese. OK, this should be simple, but I've never had fresh peppers to start with; assume roast them, but then what? Thank you!!!

What to do with Arugula

I'm also awash in arugula and it's starting to bolt-ack!; love it to pieces, especially in salads, but we're overrun. Found a lovely recipe in Elizabeth Bard's "Lunch in Paris" that takes about 10-15 minutes to make; includes 1 lb. bowtie pasta, add 2 cups fresh peas (frozen work fine) in last minute of pasta cooking, drain, toss lightly w/ 3/4 cups or more of good pesto and 2 large handfuls of arugula, dish out & top with crumbled goat cheese (8 oz for this recipe), and fresh ground pepper. She says it makes 4 servings, but those are huge. Big, big yum! Just had some for dinner last night. Many thanks to Ms. Bard for this recipe ane several others from her lovely book.

What do you think about double dipping?

In a word, ewww! In general, it's really bad news. My boss (a DNA analyst) has a friend who published a paper on the cross-contaminants found in double dipping. Scary stuff lurks within....

Advantages of Glass cutting boards?

Thanks for both the white vinegar and the hydrogen peroxide suggestions! Sounds like I have ammunition for the conversion.

Thanks again; you're singing to the choir with me, but you give me extra fodder to pass along and I really appreciate it.

Advantages of Glass cutting boards?

Thank you SO very much for the link (which I'll show him) - and everyone for the replies. Happily he does not use my nice knives (ack, on my g'mother's plates; still groaning). This man is an otherwise saint. If I can't convert him - not probably going to happen, but hope springs eternal - someone posted information on the Epicurean cutting boards, and I'll compromise with one of those as I whimper to him to change his cutting ways. Again, so many thanks. I am thrilled to have discovered chow.com!!!

Advantages of Glass cutting boards?

Only just now discovered this site because I was searching for - horrors - where to get a glass cutting board. NOT FOR ME. But, my beloved daintily cuts cheeses, veggies, etc., on our plates. We have a very nice selection of cutting boards of varying woods and sizes, but he is convinced of bacterial transmission. sigh... So, I will concede and get him a glass cutting board so my grandmother's plates no longer suffer. So - here's another reason for why in the world would anyone get one.
