I've had to cancel weekend visitors due to DH's health so I am going to eat a piece of my frozen apricot slice and use my runny custard disaster instead of cream.  Thanks Cookie1 for putting the idea in my head.

I've had many attempts to get my time right and have got it down to at least am or pm correct.  I'm about 1-1/2 hours out but am having trouble getting it to go back by that amount of time.  I have tried, believe me!!!  Much better than it was though. Thanks for your help guys.

Thanks baf65, a price list of things people usually need to replace would be useful.  eg the spatula - mine is getting tatty looking.
Think the TM bowl will outlast me though and for just the 2 of us I find it ample.

Thanks Baf65 for that information.  If I throw the 'baby out with the dishwater' again and lose it permanently, at least I know it won't cost an arm and a leg to replace.  Are spare part prices listed anywhere on the net?

Funny how mine turned out OK with the wrong quantities!  Does this mean it will go wrong with the correct quantities - I hope not.  Anyway my weekend visitors are getting a slice of the incorrect recipe which I have kept in the freezer especially for them.

Bet it wasn't as runny as mine ;D   I'm going to try Amanda's recipe too.

Now, that's a good word - foofed!!!  It certainly describes what happened in your kitchen, not a nice mess to have to clean up.

Had these for tea tonight but were disappointed in them. Too mushy for me, I like a chunkier pie. Sorry riv-mum :(

Couldn't find my MC lid this morning so had to improvise and wonder how much a replacement was going to cost me.  Searched through bags of rubbish looking for it then went outside to see where I had thrown the loads of water I go through daily when cleaning bits and pieces over a bucket in the sink.  Yep, there it was, amongst the parsley. Happy ending.

Then had my disaster with the custard.  Had made Riv-mum's Chicken & Mushroom pot pies for tea and was going to do mashed potato with them but no, forgot I put the lid of the TM in the dishwasher and can't wait for that to finish.  So mashed potato the old fashioned way tonight.

Tomorrow is another day and hopefully, a better one.

I just invented drinking custard!! Well, there is such a thing called drinking yoghurt so why can't we have drinking custard. I was trying to adapt my recipe for French custard in the TM as it is a 'to die for' dessert but at first attempt in my 'test kitchen' nothing worked.  You make the custard with just whole milk, 3 egg yolks and a little bit of cornflour and plain flour, let it cool then whisk in some beaten cream and lastly fold in 2 egg whites which have been stiffly beaten with some castor sugar.  Even the first step of making the custard wasn't right, it was too runny right from the start. The egg whites wouldn't beat (how people make meringues is a mystery to me) so I gave up and just mixed the lot together and will drink it.  My next try will be just to fold in some beaten cream to the everyday recipe for custard and see how that tastes.
A test kitchen whizz I am not!! Can't say I am not trying though.
