    old comment, but i'm surprised to see it. i'm not sure where you're from in canada, but you can easily get lee kum kee sauces in vancouver, calgary, toronto, ottawa and montreal from big chinese supermarkets like T&T as well as smaller groceries stores. sometimes they're even cheaper than in hong kong (especially at T&T).

    my mum used to live in saskatoon(you do realise that the 5 cities you mentioned are only a tiny fraction of the country, right?)... no T&T in sight. she could get a few of them from the tiny chinese shop, but not many and not often.

    she moved to vancouver 2 months ago and i'm glad to say that i won't have to take any more of them over to her.

    Hi heres my homemade pasta sauce and its cheaper to use fresh ingredients than buy jars or packets by the way.

    2Tblsp Butter (not marg)
    2 Cloves crushed garlic
    400g Tomatoes (I use fresh but you can use tinned if using fresh make sure you skin them)
    1 Onion finley diced
    1 Tblsp Oregano
    1 Tblsp Basil
    1 Tblsp Tomato Puree
    3 Tblsp Olive Oil
    Salt and Pepper

    Melt the butter on a low heat then add the olive oil, garlic and the rest of the ingredients.
    Bring to the boil and then simmer for 20mins.

    You can use this straight away on your pasta and maybe add some chopped Pepperoni or anything you fancy really. You can also use it as a base for pizza but you need to let it go cold for pizza bases.

    In ParkNshop, I think all the meat has been previously frozen. I didnt like the sound of it either but I dont have a choice :0( lol .

    If you need anymore recepices let me know.
