Hello from Canada
« on: December 25, 2009, 05:22:47 pm »
I received a new thermomix yesterday.  I think I have died and gone to heaven.  I made pastry dough for pumpkin and apple pies for Christmas Dinner last night in 30 seconds flat.  Then when the pies were made next up was the easiest homemade lemonaid ever.  I found the Lemonaid to be a bit sweet but a shot of vodka fixed that right up  :).  Next time I will add a little less sugar.  Probably still add the vodka though.  Mmmmmm.   I woke up thinking about my new best friend this morning.  What to make today?  So many things to make.  So little time.  Hoiw have I ever survived all these years without one?

Welcome Woerd,

Great to hear you are loving your new Christmas baby. Nice hint about the vodka :-) What a nice way to enjoy the festive season.

Have a wonderful Christmas season, and looking forward to hearing about your success stories.

Take care

MM

Woerd, nice to see yet another Canadian here.  Glad to hear you are having fun with your new baby.  Does your new best friend have a name yet? 

Where are you located?

Welcome Woerd. I loved the touch of vodka, will have to try it.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome.  I have been busy thermomixing up a storm.  16 people here yesterday and I had to keep making lemonaid.  Ran out of vodka too.  LOL

Not in Terrace are you? We had an exchange teacher at my school from Terrace.

Ah, Terrace, BC - one of the most 'interesting' airports in the world to fly in and out of - especially in bad weather.

LOL.  Try the Sunshine Coast, B.C. on a two seater float plane in windy weather.

I lived in the Queen Charlottes for a couple of years - the Grauman Goose was the plane that flew in and out of there - when the weather permitted.  Amazing how often you were stuck.  Learned to live without fresh milk and fresh veggies for long periods of time when the barges couldn't get out to us.

Hi Trudy.

Canada has many different weather zones.  In Edmonton it is very cold in the winter.  Here in BC it is much warmer.  It gets slightly below zero once in awhile but we rarely get snow.  Last yesar we had quite a bit for a few weeks but then it was gone.  We have had none this year YET!!!  : )

Off to make leek and potato soup in my new best friend!!!!

Welcome to you! Another Canadian on the forum. I've been reading about the Canadian Freezer and find it so fascinating that you can put food outside to freeze!!
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.
