Canola oil is what I buy, other than olive oil. I buy it because I read the same health information. My husband loves fried food so I figure he might as well at least be using a healthier oil. I don't usually eat pizza, but I might like it deep fried!

Something insane I made "Colombian style hamburger". When I was in Colombia they had all kinds of crazy sauces for hot dogs and burgers.

Looks good. How did it taste? Is is good enough that you will give us your recipe?

It tasted very good Zhizara - but whether it was anything like an actual chowder is anyone's guess!

And I didn't really follow a recipe in the end - just softened chopped onion and finely diced potato in sunflower oil. (The finely diced potato was for thickening purposes as I didn't want to use flour). Then added some chicken stock, potato chunks, frozen sweetcorn and a little thyme and simmered gently til the potato chunks were cooked through. After that I added the crab chunks to warm through, some heavy cream and a good grinding of pepper. (And I threw some chopped parsley on top to make it look pretty.)

I imagine the chowder police are on my tail even as we speak!
