To be honest Caroline, I haven't noticed any difference.  If the recipe says 2 cloves, I use 2 which isn't a great quantity anyway.

Thanks for the recipe Cookie, on my to do list.  I microwave my icecream for up to 20 seconds to make it easier to scoop into the cones, wonder if this method would work for home-made ice-cream.

We don't eat a lot of cookies or cake but I promise I will make them when I get back Cookie - can always pass them around to the neighbours or the folks in Mum's retirement village. Good luck in the competition, I am thrilled for you.

Not only can he cook, he is quite cute too  ;D ;D ;D

And I've already put mine on the forum and won't have time now to convert anymore for a few weeks.

Sorry your team lost Cookie, only just though!  Ours was a good match today, bit warm though in the sun. No footy now for 2 weeks and thank you, yes we hope to have a good holiday.

Same here Cookie but I have stopped buying those monthly ones from the supermarket now that I have my TMX

Isn't it great to have the footy back Cookie - have watched every match they've shown here so far then at the breaks I come up and check on my forum site.

Where is the recipe for banana ice-cream Cookie.  You have been busy today, it's nice to have days like that.  I'm winding down now as we leave on Wednesday so am trying to use up things before we go.  Will be nice to have all the cooking done for me for a change but I have to learn to say no to the souffles - I had one every night last cruise.

I can vouch for the thermosavers - use mine all the time. Meat dish sits in there whilst I cook the rice or the rice sits in there when I do the stir fried vegies.  Nice to serve from at the table too.

Great match Riv Mum - suspense was killing me.  Hate watching these types of matches on TV - find it much easier on the nerves to actually be there.  So many young kids in the team - they did extremely well.  I'm off to our match tomorrow - 30o, a bit too hot really for footy and glad I'm only watching!

Suggestions and Complaints / Read the recipe!!!!

Just a word of warning for newcomers as I am still making mistakes in this regard.  Tonight I thought I'd try the Asian style fish fillets pge 104 everyday cooking book.  Did the first bit with the spices then sauteed them as per a suggestion from Joy.  You were then supposed to coat the fish with the spices, place on varoma tray and add water to the TM bowl.  No, stupid me, didn't read it again and I poured the water straight on top of the sauteed spices.  Buggar!! So we had steam infused flathead instead, no way was I starting the process again. Obviously it didn't taste the same as it should have - a simple error but one I could kick myself for.

Another error I frequently made in the beginning was when the timer went off, I checked the food and decided to give it more time, I used to forget to push the temperature button again (just presumed it would continue as previously set but no, it doesn't).  So be careful here too.

Yesterday I froze the peeled (in TMX) cloves from 2 large bulbs of garlic and I removed all the little green bits from the centre. You wouldn't believe how handy that exercise has been - just open the bag and take out how many pieces you want.  Next time I buy garlic, it will be a bagful! I just love shortcuts.

Tonight's tea consisted of Bron's Meatballs in Tomato Sauce (varoma cooked) & her steamed garlic rice.  Meatballs & sauce cooked yesterday and rice tonight.  Lovely meal served sprinkled with parmesan cheese.  Not a great meatball fan but must admit I did enjoy these.  Next time I will add some chilli paste to the meatballs. Heaps left over as DH only wanted 4 and I had 3. Thanks for telling us how many meatballs to make too, it is always a help to know how many you should end up with.

I lived in Darwin for 2 years around 1970 and we bought home a bottle of saki.  At our homecoming party, some of our guests tried it and my now dear departed girlfriend's personality changed dramatically with just 1 drink of saki - potent stuff!! Thanks Cookie, I though that too but it will be a while before I get to this recipe - so many I want to try now - who needs cookbooks with so many interesting recipes on the forum.

Thanks Thermomixer for your advice too. Maybe in future it would be handy to have substitutes for products not usually stocked in our pantry and often hard to get around the suburbs.
