This one and the potato one look good and def worth giving a try. What I like about the list of ingredients is that there is no garlic. Yes, I hate the stuff and will not use it nor eat food with it in it. I know - there are things such as Lea and Perrins, Heinz Tomato sauce which have garlic in them but as long a I can't smell or taste them then I am happy. I'm even happier knowing there really is no garlic used at all.
Never used garlic in anything one would normally find it used and people are under the impression that I used it because it is expected!

LOL you absolutely right Rob that's why so many people are leaving this country and moving abroad.

I haven't been to Calis yet but will do the SOuth coast when we go to live there.

By the way I got all the ingredients in for the above dish and ended up watching the rugby and then hubby cooked a Thai curry. Will do it soon though
