not my sort of thing but will be perfect for my high tea - garden party theme b'day party later this year - thanks paul!

Sounds like you have a 'special' birthday coming up Karen?

So when a recipe calls for concentrated vegie stock, have you just been using a stock cube or powder?  You will love the concentrate then and find yourself using it in heaps of things.

Are your pavlovas successful or is it still hit and miss Thermomixer?  If someone has a foolproof recipe, please post and tell us.

Maybe that is the difference in our timing methods Thermomixer.  I use cold water - have never dropped an egg into boiling water in my life.  Haven't timed how long it takes to come to the boil - I just put them in, walk away and come back when the timer goes off.

I haven't had any luck beating egg whites either I Love Bimby!  Pavlovas used to be my specialty but I would still do them the old way unless someone can come up with a foolproof method in the TMX. If recipes are improved, I think they should be posted on the Thermomix site at least, for those of us with the original book.

Just checked out your blog Karen - impressive :)

So, is Bron's vegie stock better than the one in the everyday cookbook.  I am almost due to make another batch.  I think the one in the book would be cheaper to make but cost isn't everything if you are getting a better finished product.

This is a little beauty Bron - had everything on hand so whipped it up in no time. Found it doesn't set hard like sorbet or most ice-creams either so that is another bonus.

Wanted to clear out some of the excess frozen stock of bananas and strawberries ready for the coming winter so decided to try Bron's Instant Banana Ice-cream (in desserts on this forum).  It was really nice but unfortunately didn't free up any space in the freezer once I put the container of ice-cream back in there ::) ::) Will certainly do this one for visitors.

I just assumed it was a thermomix party!  Don't know that you would need too much training - sure you know the machine backwards by now.

Thanks Meganjane.  Love your little reference to wine under the posting.  That was the only thing that spoilt my lunch today - I didn't have a bottle in the fridge to enjoy with the meal. ;D ;D

I did 11 minutes for 4 large boiled eggs  - tried 10, chopped off one of the tops and the white wasn't set so sat him back in the basket with his lid perched on top and did them all for an extra minute.  Pays to check one when you think they are done and easy enough to keep cooking it if isn't to your liking.

Bron's steam pork loin turned out beautifully - I ended up cooking the lot and I reckon we ate just over half of it between the 2 of us. We are meat and gravy people so I made some gravy and also served it with a dollop of apple sauce, made some cheese sauce in the TMX whilst the meat was resting to pour over the cauli and broccoli and with the weber roasted vegies, it was a delicious meal.  DH was suitably impressed Bron.
Question for you or anyone who can answer it is - is it possible to re-use the rock salt.  I have poured boiling water over it to clean it but would it be unsafe to store it until next time I want to cook this way.

Hi Cookie1, yes it was a great match to watch.  Been a long time since I have been in a crowd of over 40,000 at AAMI Stadium, the atmosphere was great and it was a perfect night for footy. Thought your team would have beaten Freo - did you go? Football is a funny game, up one week and down the next!
