Hi Lien
There seems to be something about the Thermomix that husbands like.  It was my DH that said 'we should get one of those'.
I didn't complain at all.
Welcome and I hope you receive your Thermomix before Christmas.

Yes! Let's have a Thermomix party out in the middle of the Nullabor.  Perhaps on the head of the bight when the whales are in-it is an awesome sight.

Wow, everyone is so quick. I'm quite happy to send any recipes if anyone wants them, or post them on this site.  I guess that is ok. (copyright ?)

I really have had little support from my consultant. They did phone once to see how it was going but that has been all.
After speaking with others who have thermomixes I felt that my demonstration was a little rushed. It was good and I did appreciate the work the consultant had done to come to my home etc. But some people had received that little bit extra, like coffee at the end of the demonstration made in the thermomix.  I don't know if it made any difference that I had already made it clear that I wished to purchase one.
I am quite sure that if I was to contact her I would receive all the help I required.
I'm having great fun experimenting. :D

Yes I was.  It was good wasn't it?  So far I've only made the Christmas Shortbread.  It is really nice.  Hubby took some to his veteran car club yesterday and apparently they all enjoyed it too.  I've brought the cheeses to make the cheese log, so will do that in the next day or so.
I bought the seafood book and we've had the fish curry from that-yummy!
It's amazing how many Perthites have thermomixes when you see them all out.  I have a friend who is away but plans to buy one when they return.

Hi Greenie
Look forward to seeing some of your recipes.  Not so sunny here today though. I'm sure summer will come soon,  probably VERY hot.

Totally off the point: But "I added an avatar!!!!!!!!!!"  Not bad for a totally computer illiterate person. Maybe one day I will be able to change it to something thermomixy. (if there is such a word).

Thanks Warren.  Wow, imagine having a special place to rise your bread. Your kitchen is really something. I love the tribute to your mother in law. You sound as though you really love your cooking.

I've just made the Christmas shortbread from the Christmas book and they are in the oven.  Also have Naan bread rising and that is to go with the Fish Curry we're having tonight from the Seafood cookbook. Should be a good evening meal tonight! :D

Warren, your kitchen looks amazing.  Excuse my ignorance but I am wondering what the piece of equipment is that looks like it has a cover over it (with a window in) at the back, very tall, with wheels. It looks interesting.
 Is that an animal head I see centre right?  Is it for cooking or decoration?
Welcome to the forum, I find it very helpful.

CHRISTMAS / Re: xmas cooking classes

No Tenina, I didn't.  Was chatting to Grace (I think) for quite some time and couldn't see you when I'd finished.  Next year.
Thanks again.  Have made the cupcakes from the calendar-very nice.

Thermomixer, the tips I gained are probably old hat to people who have been using their machines for some time, but here's a couple I remember.
Squeeze your lemon directly onto the lid of the machine, the MC will stop the seeds going in-no need to use a juicer.
To release dough or anything similar easily, simply turn the bowl upside down and wriggle the blades.  I've been labourously scraping things out with the spatula.
To get dip etc off the blades after you have scraped it out, simply give a turbo pulse and food on the blade will fly off. Easier to get the rest out. (lid on of course)
Hopefully I have explained them clearly!

Drinks / Re: Peach Lassi

This sounds rather tasty and very healthy. We use the thermomix to make a lot of milkshake type drinks. We use a cup of milk for each person, then some yoghurt if wanted, fruit that the person has requeste, possibly a splash of vanilla and a couple of iceblocks for each cup of milk. It's so handy, you can make several different flavours of milkkshake in a few minutes.  The last one can be quite a mix of flavours as I don't rinse the bowl between milkshakes. 
Must try your tasty recipe as I haven't used tinned fruit for any yet.

We made the Lemon Cupcakes from the new calendar yesterday.  We didn't ice them but still found them very nice. The last cake we made using the thermomix wasn't too good, but these are nice and airy and light.

I've just returned from the lunchtime Christmas class.  It was really good and all the food was excellent.  I also picked up lots of little tips that I was unaware of.
Tenina, your noodles looked lovely doing a little dance around, sticking out of the top of the bowl. The dish you made (Mango Macadamia Chicken Noodles) was really tasty.
I am even more impressed with things the Thermomix can do than before.  I can hardly wait to go shopping and buy the ingredients for the almond cheeseball. I will have to practise making it lots and lots before Christmas.  (yum)

We had ham and asparagus risotto last night.  There was enough to feed an army.  Good for leftover lunch today.
Will post the recipe asap as it's really nice.
