    Well it was the natural thing to do to it really...

    Quite - in fact Tomato sauce with anything is pretty ewwww.

    And between the possums and ourselves, this photo will be the only evidence... d'oh!

    This one came from up north as my parents brought it down with them.

    Not that cheap here - I think the best I've seen is about $20/box.
