Tomato season is almost over and I am looking for any excuse to buy and eat them. I've been slicing them into salads with watermelon and feta, roasting them for pasta sauces, layering them on pizzas.

One of my friends who shall remain nameless (Oh, okay. His name is Colin. Colin P. Delaney. He lives in Greenpoint.) says he's been eating a whole tomato with olive oil, salt, and pepper for breakfast in the morning. Even as a fellow tomato-lover this strikes me as being a little insane. But who am I to judge?

Here are some tomato-centric links to inspire Colin and the rest of us:

The "best" BLT (with tomatoes, burrata, and crispy pancetta) [via Bon Appetit's Project Recipe]

A simple salad with fresh corn and basil [via Lottie & Doof]

Creamy heirloom tomato soup (with grilled cheese...mmm) [via Bella Eats]

Smitten Kitchen uses tomatoes in a cornbread salad, a clever twist on panzanella. [via Smitten Kitchen]

If you're lucky enough to get your hands on Green Zebra tomatoes, an heirloom variety, here's a recipe for a Green Zebra gazpacho (I'm sure it would work well with unripe red tomatoes or regular beefsteaks, too.) [via Food & Wine]
