Hello from Washington DC!
« on: July 21, 2009, 12:44:34 am »
After 4 years of obsessing about the Thermomix, reading evrything I could get my hands on and lamenting the fact that they don't sell them anymore in the US, I finally got one! (Through one of the Canadian distributors who will sell to US customers.) I have spent the past week having so much fun getting to know this amazing machine - making raspberry jam, cinnamon swirl loaf, beef stroganoff, ile flotant with vanilla custard, tons of fruit smoothies, sorbet, hummus and much more.

I am a wife, mother to 2 (boy 8 and girl 5) as well as a management consultant. I adore cooking and am thrilled at all of the things the Thermix will help me make.

I am delighted to join your community and look forward to learning so much more about the Thermomix as well as trying some of the wonderful recipes posted here. (I tried the fruit roll-up recipe this morning - it is drying in my over as we speak!)

Thank you all of such a wonderful forum and I hope to be an active member

Hi MelissaS,

So glad you found us. It's also nice to hear from Thermomix users in USA. Have a great time with other members. I am sure you will learn LOADS here.

Take care

Welcome and hope to see lots of your contributions. 

I thought about buying one for 4 years, but not obsessively, until finally my wife bought it for my birthday (and I had to pay off the credit card  :-)) )

Welcome MelissaS.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Welcome to our world MelissaS - I love it when people want something and no matter how many hurdles they are faced with, find a way of getting it in the end.  Well done and enjoy your cooking. Will never understand why it is being made so difficult for people in USA to get one of these machines.

G'Day MelissaS & welcome.  Hopefully with more likeminded people such as yourself over there eventually someone will have to make it easier to distribute the Thermomix there. Enjoy!

Hi Melissa.  Nice to meet you.  Finally more members from the States :)  We do have to work hard to get one though, don't we?

I'm sure you'll make a lot of friends and find tons of help on this forum.  Any questions, just ask.
