This is actually my profession, and we offer induction of labour at 7-10 days over, but it's also ok to wait as long as you monitor the well being of the baby and mother.

Not in Spain, they made me go 43 weeks with my 2nd! And with my 3rd 42 weeks, and only induced me as had high blood pressure! Not surprised, my little sod weighed 5 kilos! :o

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.

LOL - haven't been No 1 since she found out her daughter was expecting - all pressies she has bought since have been size NB - which are NBG to me!!!!

Suspect they offered induction but the step-daughter was keen to do it all naturally - unfortunately her pubic symphysis and that stuff forced her to abandon her dreams 20 hours into the natural business to allow cold steel to rescue the situation.

He wasn't that big -we still do babies in the old money - pounds and ounces - suspect it is to make it sound worse for the mothers  ;) ;)

Congratulations!  I have a theory babies are getting bigger and don't fit through as well as they used to.  At least, that's why I'm often up at 3am doing the caesarean thing.

Chicken terrine - this is my first post here

600g chicken breast or thigh fillets, cut into small chunks
5 eggs
300ml double cream
3 shallots (not spring onions, the little onion things)
3 cloves garlic
6 chives, chopped
3 tbsp good olive oil
Salt, pepper, nutmeg


Chop the shallots and garlic for 5 seconds on 5-6, scrape down
Add olive oil and cook for 5 minutes 100 C and speed 1
Add chicken and blend on 6-7 until smooth (or slightly chunky if you prefer)
Add eggs and blend for 3 seconds on 6-7
Add cream, salt, pepper, nutmeg to taste, chives and blend on 3 for 5 seconds
Poor into a terrine and place in a roasting pan with boiling water added to come halfway up side of terrine
Cook in oven for 1 hour at 180 C



This is nice either cold or warm, and leftovers make great sandwich fillings.  I had some for dinner with some toasted wholemeal bread I made from scratch, including milling the grain, in the TMX and I felt good!  I guess you could steam it in the Varoma too but my terrine dish wouldn't fit in there.


Hi Paul, this sounds delish...can I test it for our Meat on the Menu book???
