Soups / Re: Chicken and sweetcorn soup

We are a chicken soup family too.  When my 39 year old daughter is ill, all she wants is some of my chicken soup and at the moment her 4 year old daughter only wants chicken soup (and she isn't sick).  Mind you, all that changed the other night when I took them down a casserole dish of moussaka and the little one came back for seconds!  Will try your version Paul.

How about this one Caroline. 

1 cup frozen raspberries
1 cup orange juice
1 cup diet vanilla yoghurt
Blend until smooth.  Sounds pretty good to me.

Never used it myself Caroline but just googled 'wild rice recipes' and there are heaps of things on there for you to have a look at.

Potato & Leek Soup Pge 72 Everyday Cookbook

Cooked as per recipe but added more potato.  Found it to be very salty so I think just 1 tablespoon vegie stock concentrate would be enough. Decided to add the cream into the blended soup to see if that would cut the saltiness (instead of swirling it on the top when serving).  This improved it a lot but I still felt it was lacking some oomph so sauteed some bacon and added that along with some chopped parsley.  I was then reasonably happy with it but I think I will add even more potato next time.

For me, 3/5 as I have tasted some absolutely delicious potato and leek soups and this wasn't one of them.

Having a cooking day today for visitors coming to lunch tomorrow.  Just made the Capsicum & Sundried Tomato Dip, everyday book page 54.  Very nice, different!  Far too much though so was wondering if anyone has made this one and frozen a portion for later. If not, looks like daughter will get it when I see her on Tuesday. She has made this one before and loved it so I knew it was going to be OK - not brave enough to try something different like this recipe unless it has been recommended.

I ended up freezing half of this dip and recently took some out for a visitor.  Was able to cut it in half and put the rest back in the freezer and yes, it freezes well.

This afternoon I have made Bron's Banoffee Pie, I Love Bimby's Spiced Chicken & Sweet Potato and the Potato & Leek soup from the everyday cookbook.  Reviews will be made later. All I have to do now is steam some vegies then blitz today's bucket of vegie peelings for the compost and I am done.

Poor ma-in-law! Maybe she did it on purpose so you wouldn't go away  ;D ;D - no only joking!!  Glad you have that book, now you can try lots of things for the rest of us (here's hoping you do catch plenty of fish) and post your reviews when you get back. If you are going to keep travelling like this Cookie1, you will have to get yourself a lap-top like Thermomixer.  Good luck with your departure date.

Thanks Cookie1, now I know how you felt when you won the cooking competition for March although there was much more skill involved in your win than mine - I just went about my daily routine of postings, forgetting all about the book prize ::) ::) ::)

Oh no! Poor grannie, not being their for the birth of her first grand-child.  I didn't think they let them go over by that many weeks these days (different to my day over 40 years ago) and hope all is going well.  15 hours - poor girl!  Your life is going to change now Thermomixer, you won't be No. 1 in DW's life anymore so will be able to spend a lot more time on this site! Let us know when the baby arrives.

I am making this one as we speak but using 3 chicken marylands skinned and some scraggy bits of bone removed - I have 6 pieces - plenty for 3-4 people I would think.  Will report back after tea tonight.  Chicken marylands cost only $1 each here so it is a really cheap meal and I'm hoping the recipe turns out as well as using thigh fillets would.

Review - This is an excellent meal, low fat too.  I substituted the chicken thighs with skinned and partly deboned chicken marylands (cut in half at the joint) for a much cheaper meal.  The cooking time was still perfect.  I think I will double the sauce next time though as I am a real sauce lover and even if it is too much,  the excess can be frozen for something else. Seasoning was perfect.

5/5 from me and DH

You are on holidays Thermomixer and you still find the time to check out our forum - I give you a standing ovation for that effort on behalf of all the other members.  Your knowledge and input is so much appreciated and we trust you are having a wonderful holiday.

Bron, you are the first person I have heard who has said that boys are harder to raise than girls - it is usually the other way round in this country!

What, you haven't tried Bron's steamed garlic rice I Love Bimby! It is in the vegie section of the forum and is delicious - actually it is the only way I cook rice these days.
