Green Tomato Cake…



This year we have tons of green tomatoes because of the weather. My husband picked them and asked what he should do with them. Of course I said “Well, I can try looking up new recipes for green tomatoes” and he cringed. He HATES when I say  ” I tried a new recipe”. He’s afraid to be really hungry then he is not going to like what I cooked.

Anyway, I did find a recipe for Green Tomato Cake and it’s like magic!
