Everyone's cooking looks delicious. Can't remember the last time I had a pumpkin scone - would love one with a bowl of chookie's soup and Portuguese tart to finish off with.  :D

Lovely cooking everyone. 

ES, those tarts look so delicious and  Chookie your soup looks so tasty, just right for the colder days.

I was given a very large pumpkin so have made some pumpkin & carrot soup and pumpkin scones.  Still lots of pumpkin left :D

Good afternoon all.  A beautiful sunny day here.

DS took this photo with his phone of a sugar glider in the tree last night.  They are lovely little creatures, so tiny  and often hard to see.

Bread / Re: Sour Dough, Rye and Wholemeal Full Flavored Loaf

I've made this bread a couple of times and it's the best tasting sourdough! Thanks all for the tips in this thread. One thing I've noticed is that the thermie seems to be working very hard to knead the dough. Maybe because I've been using a mix wholemeal rye and unbleached bakers flour, or maybe because my thermie is starting to slow with age (like me :P)

Thank you Chookie 8) 8) 8) I had this many years ago at a restaurant, loved it,  but haven't had it since.
Looks divine. Will have to get some scallops and make it. No mushies though ;D

Wow talk about coincidence. I broke a tooth yesterday  :'( so I have been rummaging through my soup recipes. Is this the recipe you are looking for? It looks very similar.  (This was before Paprika when I was disorganised and didn't record the url with the recipe :-)))

Condensed tomato soup
Ingredients
   1 large brown onion - peeled and quartered
   1 large green apple - cored and quartered
   1kg quartered and frozen tomatoes (slightly thawed)
   80g red wine vinegar
   50g water
   150g rapadura (or a little less sugar)
   1 tsp ground mustard
   1/2 tsp curry powder
   pinch cayenne pepper
Method:
1.   Place onion and apple in TMX bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 5. Set aside.
2.   Place tomatoes in TMX bowl and chop on speed 9 using the spatula to assist. Continue stirring and chopping until the tomatoes reach a sorbet-like consistency.
3.   Add remaining ingredients (including apple and onion) and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4.
4.   Cook for 40 minutes at varoma temperature, speed 2.
5.   Blend for 1 minute on speed 9 (turn dial slowly to speed 9 in case of splatters).
6.   Pour into hot sterilised jars (I use two 500ml jars for each batch) and seal.
Use in casseroles, pasta bakes and any other recipe that calls for a can of tomato soup. :-)
Notes:I haven't tried making this with fresh tomatoes, it may very well work the same though.

I just changed my car insurance after 26 years to another company, and saved $95, amazing what they will discount.

so that would be $1600-$2000 I have saved on insurance, by changing. :)
