Oven dried tomatoes

There are a few reasons I get really hungry at night-I either am watching a cooking show or on Pinterest, tonight it was both. It's also 3AM, and my back is killing me more than normal (I under went a failed spinal surgery in November 2011). I also remembered that I have a ridiculous amount of ripe tomatoes that I can't possibly eat before going bad. Hence me making "sun" dried tomatoes. Coldest summer in Southern California ever without sun is annoying me. End ramble.

-Ton of organic ripe tomatoes (for me it was a big potful). 

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93 degrees Celsius). 
2. Wash tomatoes thoroughly and de stem. 

3. Cut in half and squeeze excess liquid/seeds into bowl.

4. Get tomato seem juice everywhere because its 3AM...or not because you may not be a vampire like myself. 
4. Place tomatoes cut side up, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

5. Put in oven and set timer for 6 hours (I ended up baking them for 10). 

Try to control how many you put in your mouth! 
And here is a tomato that looks like boobs.
