But I promised you earlier that I would share this Tomato Sauce recipe, the Australian version.
I enjoyed the company of cooking it with a friend and even better, using my own homegrown, organic tomatoes. The sauce is particularly devine with barbeque meat. So here it is...

Thank you for walking through my garden...
