Mixed it with a small can of tomato paste (no other tomato product in the house!). Will spoon over the rolled manicotti sprinkled with Italian blend shredded cheese and bake.
With using what you had, your dinner sound delicious! I wish I was there to sample some!!

All I know is we are having corn on the cob. What to have with it? Well, depends if I get to the market and find some nice fresh meat or pull something out of the freezer.

Nothing like planning your meal around a vegetable (guess that is the former vegetarian in me wanting to get out )

What is everyone else having?
Well, I couldn't think of a better vegetable to plan a meal around! There is nothing better than sweet summer corn!

Thanks It was very tasty and for supper I had a little with some chicken which went very well. Next time I will make a big batch so it will last a little longer!

I've just made some redcurrant and onion relish to have with grilled chicken and some crusty bread.

ps thanks for the FB invite

I'm glad you decided on something! That red currant relish of yours really tempts me. YUM! Like I think I said before.. that would be good on almost any meat main course!

We we're both not very hungry so after making the redcurrant and onion relish we just settled for some crusty bread and cheese with the relish on the side

I responded too soon. Sometimes a big ol' hunk of crusty bread satisfies!! .... maybe chicken another day... your plate looks gorgeous!

You can never go wrong with a BLT. What kind of bread did you use? Did you have anything with it... chips, fries... pickle?
