its awesome for a first try at making tomato sauce.
 Second this one was for the FIL (pop)
Lemon meringue pie One of his fav's.

 This is one of those that i make off the top of my head no measuring just how much i think of everything and it all was turns out perfect.

Favorite Veg

You know when i was little i HATED beans.
I don't blame the kids for not liking them
as i said i hated them.
But funny enough they are now one of my Favorite veg's.
I fried these with some button mushrooms a little butter and some chives + salt and pepper to taste.
 I served my veg with some homemade honey and mustard chicken.
The sauce is so simple i added wholegrain mustard honey and cream to my fried chicken and waited till it thickened up i added a teaspoon of corn flower as well so simple.
