Our grape tomato vine is still going strong, but has slowed down a little. However, one can only eat so many in salads. I had to find some other way to use them up.

A little experimenting with cooking them yielded a pot of soup for now and one for later. They are delicious in this soup and I would think in other tomato dishes like chili. I cooked them alone first by cutting them in half and adding a little water. Once they were done I added some browned ground beef, 1/2 small can of tomato paste, one can of mixed vegetables (undrained) and enough water to cover it all. Then it simmered for a while and made a wonderful meal.
