I have made another lot of Mayo using this recipe. Much the same but replaced 1 tablespoon of vinegar with 1 teaspoon of maple syrup.  I think I like this better as Mayo although the original recipe is excellent as a cold slaw dressing.

I also used a different brand of Chick peas. Woolworths low salt.

It's a real learning curve isn't it Allen. You will find Thermomix saucy recipes usually taste better the next day.

Chookie, I think the birds will eat some, but there are tree branches in the dam so that they can hide.

Today, I tried the Meatballs and tomato sauce in the basic cookbook, for disclosure I have never steam hamburger meat or any red meat as that goes.

By the time I added the soaked bread in milk (squeeze the milk out first) I had a consistency that remind me of step 2 baby food, the next time you are boarded get yourself a jar of step 2 meat baby food and tried to make some 25/50 mm balls. Then it had me grease the Varoma’s bottom and top dish, boy hamburger does not have enough grease (fat) I am thinking. As my new made dish is cooking I am thinking about all that grease dripping in the my tomato sauce, then the chime goes off after 20 min. What I find is a done meatballs, but with a mild taste and lacking in texture and color. The tomato sauce had good flavor and color even with all that extra fat dripping in it. So my culinary skills jump in (or should I say lack of) and I quickly grab my dutch oven, open a jar of spaghetti sauce add the meatballs and the tomato sauce and let them all simmer for couple of hours = good texture and color. Then came the spaghetti, that went as plan for the most part I was cooking with a thin but thicker gauge than I like, so my cook time need to be about 2 mins longer that I set the time for. My preference is angel hair a very thin gauge of spaghetti

Moment of truth my DW who's not a big spaghetti fan said she like it and it was good because she had not had it for awhile, when I ask her about the meatballs she reply they are really good, I like them a lot (she doesn't like to cook so ALL of my dishes are good) but on a real note it turn out better than I first thought it was going to be, I also like it. Will I steam red meat again? Maybe.
