Have fun jeninwa. Cook those tortillas well. You will be able to have some more of the goodies on offer.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Chicken stock- I left mine in the oven until the skin was crispy..  I did turn the oven quite low, as I didn't want to burn the veges etc.  I did have the tray quite piled up and turned the veges / bones over regularly.  I did also take out those that dried out first, and left others in a bit longer- the celery took longer to dry out than the skin and some of the other veges.  I used fennel seeds too as I didn't have any celery seeds.. All up I reckon the oven was on about 2 hours, not good when it's 40 degrees in the shade, but I'm loving cooking so much at the moment nothing else matters!!
I made the energy bars today..  I processed everything up though- my kids aren't keen on chunky nuts.  I had whole almonds, skin on, so milled down you won't pick the skins.  They are YUM!  Have told my girls they can have them for beakfast with a glass of milk- they think I've gone mad letting them have chocolate for breakfast!
Any one NOR- Jones St, (Stirling) Fruit and Vege have "2nd's almonds" cheap (think I paid $5 for a kg) they're broken bits of almonds, but perfect for cooking...
Yes Cookie, we must make ourselves known!  I will go to Tenina's next day time class if she does one as promised!!!
I'm having a green smoothie for lunch every day too..  Attempting to lose the weight I've gained since thermie came along, so far so good...

Had a look at this book in dymocks today and am deffo going to buy it.  What I liked about it on a quick glance was unlike some of the thermomix books I have, this one is not afraid to use the oven in conjunction with the thermomix.  FSA and MWOC just have the whole lot done in TM which is not always so appetizing

Totally agree with you there Baf!

I wouldn't bother making the chicken stock powder. When I have a roast chicken, I always cook up the bones with celery, carrot, onion and parsley on the stove.  Cook on very low for a few hours. Strain, reduce and freeze in plastic bags.
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.

me and a friend were just in a local bookshop, they had 2 copies of the FFS book, the lady was saying she had only agreed to get 2 as she wasnt sure how they would sell as the TM came with its own book....but after we chatted to her and told her why we thought this book was a good one (plus bought a copy) she is now going to call the distributor back and get more in!!

In Sydney, I have been asking around at the specialist cookbook shop (who surprisingly were very vague about TMX and seem uninterested) as well Dymocks who did try to find out if it was available and came back and said, sorry no.

courton - you'd think when someone is in a specialist cookbook shop (think I know the one you're referring to) you'd think their ears would perk up to someone coming in and bringing to their notice something about which they had little knowlege.  One would hope they'd have the initiative to research it a little more, learn more, add to their professional knowledge, bring in appropriate stock and, in so doing, bring a new dimension to their business.  (my turn on the soapbox is up I'm told . . . ;))

One would have thought so too goldfish but they muttered something about tmx being some sort of franchise (!!!) operation . Obviously, not aware of TMX ...

Hi All, re bookstores, as Tenina's publisher - for current stockists please refer to the links at the top of this review. The staff at these stores should know about FFS. Some bookstores purchasing departments have not heard of TM - so it is more difficult to get a listing!

I know everone on this forum loves Tenina and she has done a great job with both books and I'm sure she has more to come, but I don't understand how she is not in contravention of the rules of this forum, section 5 I believe which was pointed out to another poster who linked to her store a few weeks ago and seems to have been booted off. I understand that Tenina contributes to the forum in many ways, and has helped many purchase her book but this post now linking directly to her publisher and her own post linking to her Melbourne and Adelaide courses I would have thought were in direct contravention of the rules. I'm happy to stand corrected and not wanting to have a go at Tenina but it seems the rules are being applied differently  to different people??
