Chang Thai, Our Family’s New Favorite

Chicken-Stuffed Tomatoes, Yum!

Just the thought of going out to the garden about lunchtime and picking a couple of juicy, ripe tomatoes for stuffing is already making my mouth water! Here’s a couple of ways to prepare a great summer lunch, easy and hard (sorta).
