You are right there Queen Be - my DH always used to proudly tell people in the early days that everything on the table is made in the Thermomix, even the butter.

So true, not long ago I made butter. Had exactly the same  thought home made bread toasted with butter with a free range egg.

It is also really nice when you give quince paste (my fav atm) to your friends made in the TM and love it.  A good way to expose your TM don't you think?

Couldn't agree more Queen Be.  My morning breakfast was home made bread, home made butter and home made strawberry jam.  Delicious.

New next door neighbour moving in yesterday.  Gave them a loaf of Isi's bread and butter I made with frozen cream. I found when emptying my freezer. It was the fastest ever. Took only 30 seconds to churn from cream to butter.  Wrapped the bread in a new enjo bamboo tea towel I bought at my demonstration 3 years ago. Hated the damn things since they cannot go in the dryer.

That was pretty good  too. Nice to give a welcome gift made  I or due to Thermie.

Gert, I always remember our old neighbour who gave us hot scones the first day we moved to our house in Tasmania. That was over thirty years ago. The couple lived to their late nineties and I have fond memories of their friendship and kindness :)

It gives you a lot of satisfaction when you have made all the food in TMX.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Sure does! I just love to eat toasted home made bread with home made jam or marmalade. I feel so, so, so...virtuous!!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

The Fella brought some shop bought choc chip biscuits around the other day & I was annoyed because I'd just made some the day before. So imagine my delight when DD9 asked today if she could have a cookie - "one that YOU made mum, not those bought ones".

We just had roasted vegetable soup made from pumpkins we grew ourselves, accompanied by homemade bread and butter for dinner. It really doesn't get much better.
