Hello Readers, my name is Wendy. I am a happily married mother of two young ladies. Together with my husband we are living an abundant life through growing some of our own vegetables and fruit, cooking and baking everything we can from scratch and being mindful of what we use and buy.
God has blessed us abundantly. We try to be good stewards of those blessings.

* Grated carrot, zucchini or shredded silverbeet can be added to boost the family's vegetable intake.
* I like to make this in bulk by quadrupling the recipe and freezing the sauce in take away food containers. This makes a handy and very quick meal for those busy nights. If planning ahead, defrost the sauce in the fridge for 1 - 2 days to save on microwave time.
