6 Fast & Easy Recipes From Canned Tomatoes!

I hope you all had a great Christmas yesterday!  And even if you don’t celebrate the holiday, I hope it was a good day for ya!   When I was a little kid, I just loved Christmas.  All the excitement.  Presents.  Spending time with my family.  Going sledding.  All kinds of things.

I was web surfing and come across some recipes from The Cheat Sheet.  Here are two I am definitely going to try this week.  Check out the others while you are at it!
