The boss, that is my wife, made the recipe on Sunday, the 25th.
We had it last night.
It was out of this world.

Compliments to your lady wife for giving it a go! and cheers for your kind words!
give the tomato soup a try if you fancy, its hearty and comforting. the best one I made was when I had roasted the tomatoes and couldnt be bothered to finish it. I re-roasted the toms the next day and the resulting soup was brill. I dont include the garlic now as it gives me indigestion. I use chopped spring onion greens instead, same taste no after effects!.. best wishes

you wont be disappointed - but dont skimp on the recipe. its a mega meal but not as heavy as you might think. Those of a nervous disposition might use less stock cubes and miss out the puree but give it both barrels and you will be rewarded!
