Here we have the aformentioned tomato soup. We had two cans (Livin' large now!) And from the left to the right, garlic, morton nature's seasoning, parsley flakes, italian seasoning grinder, and Mrs. Dahs (I love that stuff, no salt, I put it in everything)
This, is our secret ingredient... brown sugar. We snagged it out of the cupboard after I had taken the shot of the assembled spices. If we'd had any, we would have put a dash of coffee grounds in too. It sounds gross, but trust me on this, just a dash and it's wonderful.
At this point he tried the sauce and decided there was way too much garlic. In an effort to tone it down he added more parsley flakes. Normally this would have worked, but the garlic had fairly leapt from it's bottle into the sauce. If this happens to you there's one last-ditch thing you can do, add a little salt. It's a bit extreme, but desperate times call for desperate measures, and the sauce must go on!
