  1. Many thanks Sal! Looks like there are many more recipes this month that I'll be able to try, considering last month for me was very nearly a disaster.

      Oh no! I was out of the loop in September, being away and not having the book. What happened? Your strike rate is usually so good we're all green with envy, while simultaneously somewhat awestruck.

        Oh wow. I have A LOT of tins of Spanish tuna packed in oo and never know much what to do with it. This sounds perfect. Thanks, Joe.

          About this recipe, CO. As I was reading along I noticed that every so often two words were typed together. However when I got to the direction where the text said, "Scoop the spread into a serving dish and swirl the top with aspatula." Didn't I Google to find what out the seasoning "Aspatula" is.

            That's funny. As it read, I was expecting something like arugula :)
