Hi from Lien
« on: December 12, 2008, 10:20:52 am »
Hi all,

My name is Lien and i hail from Sydney, a miserable cold one at that today.

After a wonderful friend of mine (Alina) told me about Thermomix, curiosity got the better of me and I organised for a demo at my house last night. DH was home and was quite impressed (and he is not easily impressed by the many varied gadget and appliance purchases I have had over the years).

So after a long chat to Alina and some prompt feedback from Brazen/Karen (thanks for the emails), I bit the bullet and today I put in an order for a TMX. I am hoping it arrives before xmas so I can have fun with it over the holidays.

I have a new bubba and a 3 y.o DS so hoping to whip up heaps of healthy meals for both the kiddies and my wonderful hubby!!

Hope to get to know everyone here a bit better and share the recipes & tips!

Cheers

Lien

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

Hi Lien   ;D
 
Welcome on board   :-*  - hope you get it before Christmas.  I have had so much fun with it - probably because I am a male  ::)

Good luck - remember that we all had mistakes when we started, and still do.  So don't lose heart if things don't work out.

We're here to help.  ;D

Hi Lien.  I also only got mine recently and sorbet was one of my first experiments too  :)  I have moved on to bolognese sauce (vegetarian).  Hope you're enjoying your Thermomix!!!!

Welcome, Lien.  And glad to hear that it's here - enjoy!

I'm sure it is a boy thing.
A friend of mine got one a couple of weeks ago and her husband has placed himself in charge of it!!
Suits her to have someone else cook. :D

My husband cooks with it too.  He's largely taken over breakfasts and bread - which is great.  Prior to that he was a largely unknown stranger in the kitchen, except for occasional forays.  :D
