  9. Add tomato sauce, mushroom, tomatoes and Worchestershire, blending well with a whisk if need be to prevent lumps.

RECIPE BACKSTORY
HI! It's been a while, I know- just getting used to the new site! I tried adding some other recipes recently, and things just didn't work out, but here goes AGAIN! Still married- and here's one of the reasons why- I am an EXCELLENT cook... that's how I hook 'em, and that's how I keep 'em. All else is always forgiven. Enjoy!
