It's a simple sauce base ideal if you don't want to buy processed stuff although obviously butter milk and flour are all processed haha, but not to the extent that jar sauces are for sure, we're trying to do more wholefood but it's tricky, fruit and veg and meat are easy anything else from scratch can either be very time consuming or expensive, first meal I cooked the missus was a Thai curry reckon the ingredients cost me £40 could've took her out for a sit down lol.

I do all the cooking in this house. Simple meals, but wholesome and healthy. 

Plenty of fresh meat, veg and fruit  you can't go wrong.
