I'm going to try to post more often. I think it's really interesting to see how the Thermomix has settled into life here a few years down the track.
I no longer feel I have to use it every day but it's a much loved part of the kitchen.

The last few days the Thermomix has helped make:

Sunday - being a Sunday and at home I made a few staples.

Chicken stock. Still such a regular in our house as we love soup (and other things made with quality stock). I also find store bought stock too salty. (eldest loves it, lol).
So chicken bones, onion, garlic, celery, peppercorns, bay leaf, (maybe a carrot? but don't think so) all in the basket, water in the bowl.
Cooked for 45 mins .

Pancakes for breakfast. Basically use the crepe recipe in the EDC but I make 1.5 + times the mixture, we go through a lot of pancakes and any leftovers go into school lunches.

Strawberry jam and banana muffins. Jam I use 500g strawberries, a lemon (peeled and some of the rind added), 200g sugar and 1/2 a packet of jamsetta.
Monday 25th I made chicken and sweetcorn soup using the stock made on Sunday. With garlic, chili, leftover chicken and a tin of creamed corn. Such a simple and quick soup.  

And today I made this caramel slice. Reading SFI's whilst on the treadmill at the gym this morning and saw this recipe. So simple. Packet of milk arrowroot biscuits, 295g tin of sweetened condensed milk, 125 g butter and choc chips. 
Pop the butter in the tmx and cook at 50 degrees for 1 min till melted, add the biscuits and whizz at speed 9 till crumbed, add condensed milk and mix. Then added some dark chocolate drops and mixed with the spatula and popped into a lined slice tray. Bake 45 mins, 150 degrees. Very sweet and rich and yummy!!!
