Attack of the Exploding Tomatoes!

As good as the tomatoes we ate the other day were, we didn't quite finish the sizable basket we'd bought. So I was understandably chagrined to come home tonight and find that a couple of overripe ones had burst out of their skins and leaked tomato juice all over the counter. And onto my cell phone charger. And my son's GameBoy. And the base of the coffee pot.

I guess they were literally too much of a good thing. Next time I guess I'll make sauce.

Oh no! It hadn't dawned on me that might happen... I'm off to move the very ripe tomatoes out of the basket on my countertop! :)

I had forgotten that there's ripe, and then there's ripe! Fortunately, no permanent damage to anything, although a few paper towels were the worse for wear!
