Cooking tips

•Use tomato paste on hamburgers and hot dogs instead of catsup.
•Recycle small plastic bottles, (remove labels from the container). Put tomato paste into them and put name of item on it.
•If you are using mustard and catsup to make hamburgers or hot dogs or any other recipe that calls for these ingredients. Blend the two together and place them into a container and label it.

6 quarts of boiling water
2 to 3 tea bags

Stuffed figs
