Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Tomatoes

It is finally (finally!) actual, honest-to-goodness, SWEATER WEATHER.

I mean…

Sweater. Weather.

It’s my most favorite time of the year.

Mostly because I let the kids have “fun” raking the leaves.

Parenting Hack: If you have a chore that you loathe (like raking leaves), make it look like so.much.fun. and the kids will beg you to let them do it. This applies to laundry and toilet scrubbing, too, moms!

Anyways.

Back to sweater weather, and using the oven to actually cook things. Like stuffed tomatoes.

Under normal circumstances, I actually have a strong dislike for tomatoes unless they’re in the form of marinara or ketchup.

But stuffed tomatoes? Let me at them, y’all.

There is something so incredibly yummy about the lightness of the tomato and the richness of the filling. And it’s so, so delicious.
