Thank you thank you. I have made this and just love it. I copy it from a friends Super food Ideas. But lost the note I put it in. Went looking for it tonight so I could put it into my Recipe folder and no where to be found (bugger) Did a google for it and your recipe came up. Your a life saver :) as I am doing this for Christmas day lunch. So once again thank you :) will now have a happy family as they where all lining up for it.
