You gotta love online grocery shopping.  Overall it's very convenient and has saved me a lot of time.  You open up the store's app, plug away at your shopping list, checkout, pull up to the store, and an attendant loads your bags in for you.  Quick and easy!

This time, however, I had a little bit of a snafu.  I wanted to buy 2 tomatoes, you know, for salads or omelets, easy stuff.  I searched for tomatoes in the app, chose the quantity of 2, and added them to my cart.

You won't believe what happened next...

I didn't get 2 tomatoes, I got 2 VINES OF TOMATOES!  Holy tomatoes, Batman!

This is a problem.  I am 1 person, what the heck am I going to do with all of these dang tomatoes?  I really needed to think about this one, because obviously, I don't want them to go to waste.  HOW DO I GET MYSELF INTO THESE SITUATIONS?

So, Ocean County, I am committing to using all these tomatoes.  And since NJ is known for its delicious Jersey Fresh tomatoes, what better way to run through my supply than by making some delicious, New Jersey-inspired dishes?

I'm trying everything from sauces to omelets, to vegetable dishes.  Take a look at my top 10 NJ Italian-inspired tomato dishes (all cooked by me, if I may brag), and let me know if you have any ideas!

I accidentally bought entirely too many tomatoes. Here are all the yummy dishes I am making with them.

Oh yeah, if you want to let me know about your online grocery mishaps, so I can feel better about my mistake, I'd appreciate it.  Misery loves company, am I right?
