Yes! Last week was La Tomatina in Bunol, Spain. Otherwise known as Tomato Fight, the whole town fills the streets for a good 'ole tomato mash. Head over to "The Big Picture" from the Boston Globe for more photos of the fun!

The following is a email we received from Jon Wells on his experience with Tesoro. We thought we'd share...
Following the suggestion on your bag, I sautéed some onions and garlic in a cast-iron pan. I let them go a little longer then I think you might have. Meanwhile, I cut the Tesoro tomatoes into halves and when I thought the onions were ready, I added them.
I left the skins on, but was soon able to pull them off with tongs. After that, the tomatoes merged with the onions to make a really lovely sauce. Just before serving, we added some finely chopped, fresh basil—for color as well as taste—and threw in some parmesan.
Because we’re not doing a lot of carbs these days—and because I really enjoy it—we scraped the insides out of a spaghetti squash and that we had zapped in the microwave for 20 minutes, rotating it every five minutes. We also grilled a sausage to have on the side.
The sauce was fresh, delicious and was ready in less than twenty minutes.
I've included some pictures from my iPhone. Jon Wells
