Inspiring recipes for the Thermomix 

Thermomix Diary - May 2015

Because you asked for it, here is my Thermomix Diary for May.  This was originally done to include in my customer newsletter because I am always being asked "how many times do you actually use it?".  I really had no idea.  I assumed it was a fair amount and said it was at least 2-3 times a day but after doing the diary it is clear it way more than this.  

I excluded any times it was used in a demo (because that doesn't count) but only where it was used to cook or prepare food that my family were going to be eating.  As it turned out May was a crazy month for us so I really didn't feel like I was using it as much as I normally would.  There were plenty of nights we opted for leftovers and one night where we grabbed some frozen homemade pies out of the freezer.  Yet despite this the machine was used over 200 times.  Not bad really.

When you look at all the appliances in your kitchen, how many would you say that you use 200 times in a month, or even 10!!!  Back when I had a basic food processor it was lucky to see the light of day once a week because I couldn't be bothered to pull it out and then clean all the parts, same with my juicer.  So what you will see from my diary is that most days I make a fresh fruit/vegetable juice, my kids enjoy a cacao banana smoothie and I am loving my porridge at the moment.  My kids don't eat porridge so it is only a serve for one but I still use the Thermomix to do it because it cooks its so well and I can be getting ready for my day while its cooking.

So here it is!  I hope you enjoy seeing some of the things you can be using it for, of course this is nothing, imagine if I did an annual diary - um yeah that's not going to happen.  Even after all the years of having one I am still excited at what can be achieved, today after running out of baking powder I whipped some up in 10 seconds!!  Would never had done that pre TMX days. Hope my diary provides some inspiration for you too, please note that some of the recipes are customer exclusive recipes so I can't share them at this stage, just one of the bonuses of having me as their consultant!!  Eb x

So my fridge door became unhinged (as did I shortly after!!)  The chaos of trying to fit all my stuff into 1 very old fridge was not fun.  Thankfully we had a new fridge arrive and life goes on.
