Chit Chat / Re: A snowy London
« on: February 03, 2009, 02:48:45 am »
I didn't think that much about the east-west rail link being out until yesterday and I popped down to the shop to get milk and a bit of fruit, and half of the fruit and vegie area was empty. I asked why and was told that it's because the east-west link is out. I was disgusted as we grow heaps of stone fruit here, why can't we use that? There was heaps of tomatoes and grapes but very few apricots and plums.

Caroline, the weather over there sounds amazing. There was a picture of a London bus in our daily newspaper today with the snow falling. To a person who has never lived with snow it looked beautiful, but I can imagine the difficulties it presents.

Amanda, do the schools over there have air conditioning? I hate hot weather >:( >:(

I've just given the Salted Caramel Maple icecream its second blending and the family are lucky there was any left to return to the freezer. It is so nice. Glad to read that you had to cook it a little longer too Amanda.
This will be made again and again.

Hi Anne from another Perthite. You must be an absolute wizz on the Thermomix after 8 years. Please pass on your helpful hints.

I have the Salted Caramel Maple Icecream in the freezer at the moment getting ready for its second beat up in the Thermomix. It tasted rather good before I put it in there. I actually cooked the custard for an extra 2 minutes as it hadn't thickened at all. Possibly due to the fact that all the ingredients came directly out of the fridge. It's too hot to leave things out.
I'm looking forward to beating it up again so I can have another little taste.  I'm not going to put the chocolate into it this time.

Hi Petefoot. You're not from Perth in Scotland are you?  ;D
Welcome to this wonderful/helpful forum.

I'm going to have a go at the icecream in the calendar in the next few days.
Feel sorry for all of you having those 40+ temperatures. It isn't overly hot here today only about 31 or 32 but it is very humid and this is one Perthite who doesn't like the humidity.

Antipasto Scrolls
Makes 12
300g OO flour
1 1/2 teaspoons dried yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
125g parmesan
185g lukewarm water
1 teaspoon oil
100g thinly sliced smoked ham
250g Ricotta cheese
1 tablespoon pesto
1 1/2 cups chargrilled vegetables
1 cup mozzarella cheese, chopped in the Thermomix

Chop the parmesan. Speed 8 for 10seconds. Remove about half to use later.
Add the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. 5 seconds on speed 3 to just mix it.
Add the water and oil. 6 seconds speed 8 to combine.
Using closed lid, knead for 2 minutes on ::.
Remove dough and place on a mat, shape into a rough rectangular shape.  Leave to rest.
Roll out dough to approximately 40cm x 30cm.
Sprinkle dough with remaining parmesan, top with ham.
Combine ricotta and pesto and spread roughly over the ham.
Top with chopped vegetables and mozzarella cheese.
Roll up the 'log' from the long side.
Slice into 12 rounds and place on a baking paper lined tray.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 200 degrees C.

This recipe was modified from an advertisement for Perfect Italiano products.


You can use anything you like instead of chargrilled vegetables. eg ham and pineapple, salami, pepperoni etc.
I used low fat ricotta and it worked fine.

No, it's probably a more suitable place for it. We didn't have chit chat when it was started. :D

Mine are in the oven at the moment.  The raw mix was yum. DH will take some to car club and then they will be "all gone!"
I didn't have macadamias so used almonds.

I also find it handy to lock the lid and give a couple of blasts on turbo to get extra mixture off the blades.

I won't admit to anyone that I put mango sorbet all over the kitchen the other day. It was so sticky to clean up.

These look lovely and the type of thing my family love. I will make them tomorrow.  You've certainly been busy with the recipes. Thanks.
