Chit Chat / Re: Thelma's Here

Have also done the children's tea of rice, carrots and brocolli and salmon completely in there.  I KNOW I could just as easily have done that on the stove top but, I'm familiarising myself  ;)

I then made custard to go with the (tinned - go on shoot me!) sponge pudding.  They love sponge pudding but I rarely do it with real custard as real custard scares me ...  Not any more  ;D

Later on I shall be doing curry for dh and I.  Its really quite exciting (what a complete saddo!)   ;D

Chit Chat / Thelma's Here

Thelma is here, unpacked and currently cooking corguette soup. (zuchini to some of you maybe??)

As fabulous as I'm sure it will be, its a damn expensive soup maker so I'm going to have to expand my repertoire somewhat to make her pay her way <G>

No doubt I will keep you busy with continual updates over the next few weeks


Chit Chat / First Meal in Thelma - Too Ambitious?
« on: November 01, 2010, 02:18:38 pm »
I've just asked DH what he wants me to cook in Thelma when she arrives tomorrow (I saw that someone else called theirs Dobby, I think I like that name better!)

He's requested curry - fair enough I've ordered the Indian cookbook with it - is that going to be too ambitious for the first time of using the machine.  I'm a reasonably good cook so my learning curve is just the machine and not cooking curry!!  :D



Introduce Yourself / Re: Hi - Nicola in UK

Thanks for the great welcome everyone.

I'm so excited its untrue!!

I forgot to say that we are also caravanners, although we've stopped for the Winter.  When we start again in the Spring I shall probably be taking Thelma with me as there's only so much you can eat from the BBQ.

We have a full hob and oven in the 'van but that's far too much like being at home ....  ;D


Introduce Yourself / Hi - Nicola in UK

Hi all, as the subject says, I'm Nicola and I live in the UK (South Coast)
I've been looking at the Thermy for a while now (I have almost every other kitchen gadget ....) and at the weekend bit the bullet and ordered one.  I'm so excited it comes tomorrow.

I have three boys (8,5 and 2), the older ones are on the autistic spectrum so I like to give them an additive free diet as possible.  The oldest is medically underweight so also needs a very high calorie diet, however their behaviour is very challenging and finding the time to make meals from scratch is getting harder and harder.  Never mind finding the time for biscuits and cakes.  (although lets face it, its the clearing up that's really the problem!) <G>

Anyway looking forward to getting Thelma tomorrow (can I call her that?) and hoping that you people can help me out on my learning curve.

Good to meet you all
