Lunch - made a quick chicken, mushroom and rice curry.
Added 2 cubed chicken thigh fillets and sliced mushrooms. 2 tbsp of curry paste (I used madras so quite spicy but use whatever you like and to the amount/ heat you like), 1/2 tin of tomatoes (200g) and 100 mls water. 1/2 cup of rice (you could add more for a thicker and more rice-y dish).
Cooked 20mins, 100 ° speed 1 reverse.
Really loved this, an even quicker and easier version of my quick curry recipe with adding the rice to the dish.
Dinner - chicken and chorizo stew - will post recipe later. This was really yummy. Despite being quite spicy dd2 loved it and she usually doesn't like a lot of sauce or too much spice.
Breakfast - pikelets using nay-nays recipe off the forum - yum!!
Lunch - carrot, celery and capsicum salad (with a little mayo and sour cream)
Dinner - Quirky Jo's creamy brown rice soup - yummy as always.
Popped them in the thermoserver, picked up the girls, then whilst dishing up made a gravy from the juices in the tmx.
Yummy and perfect for our busy afternoons.
Dinner - Babi Tempra from the Asian cookbook. Pork with lime and soy.
But I made it with chicken thighs as suggested and only cooked for 30 mins.
Was really nice. I also added some veg 15 mins (next time will do 10 mins, not sure why I put them in early, we like our veg crispy, though wasn't overcooked at all) before the end. All cooked great.
A lovely slightly sweet taste the kids loved. Surprisingly loads of sauce which you could even thicken.
On the will make again list. We all love lime.
Saturday 14th May - boiled eggs, potato salad, mashed potatoes, chocolate icecream, lemon yoghurt cake, Gourmet beef,
Blogger has been down for posting so here is the last couple of days posts
Thursday 12th May
Breakfast - porridge and orange and mandarin juice
Lunch - I went to a friend's Thermomix demo (and she is buying one yah!!!) so not made in my tmx but had a lovely sorbet with orange, lemon, lime, and a bit of pineapple, beetroot salad, mushroom risotto, rolls, hummus and vanilla custard (made with goat's milk)
For dinner we had burrito's. Grated the cheese in the tmx. The mince mixture was from the freezer but had previously been made in the tmx.
Friday 13th May
Made liquid chicken stock in the morning for Dinner - cauliflower soup.
Milled coriander, cumin, and chili flakes, then added garlic and onion and chopped, then sauted, then added stock, cauliflower and cooked 15 mins, added flour and cooked 5 mins. Then blitzed for 1 minute.
It thickened up nicely in the thermoserver but I would add a potato if eating straight away.
All three girls had 3 servings and really loved this soup. It was really creamy and lovely flavours (dd1 picked the indian spices) and didn't need any extra cream.
