Looks great. I made the Italian Roasted vege tonight - so easy and so tasty. I also added some mushrooms and thought it would have been nice with a little minced garlic. You are a lovely guy - I felt so sorry for you having to sit through the other discussing their sex lives - oohh the idea of listening to Alex's sex life-YUK.
