Using up overripe tomatoes?

Anyone have ideas to use up a bunch of overripe tomatoes? These are really nice heirlooms and I'd hate to throw them out. They're still edible (not moldy), but pretty squishy.

    tomato sauce, salsa, tomato soup, add some to your rice cooker :), juice them, peel them and make a pot roast.

    Blanch and freeze for a later day.

    mmmmm tomatoes..............

    they might be too squishy for this but...

    whenever i have veggies that aren't looking so hot I slice them, brush them with olive oil, throw some seasoning on them and put them in the oven at 425 for a while until they're crispy.

      I'd slow roast them... I really love slow-roasted tomatoes for their really intense flavor and sauciness.

      You slice them about 3/4" thick, sprinkle a little salt, pepper, olive oil, and, if you like, a little bit of powdered sugar, whatever other seasonings/herbs you like, and bake them at 250 degrees for about 2 hours.
