    Yeh it does mash in teh bottom and then vegies in the steam inside the jug or on top in the bigger steamer basket. Cooks the spuds in milk/cream and its delish.

    Hubby and I are both chefs and we LOVE the custard - there is a cheats version when you don't have ingredients or are on a diet and theres a really rich real egg/cream one that is amazing. BOTH PERFECT EVERYTIME.

    The 2nd one turns into icecream!

    Thought I would post a link to the recipe forum....

    For lissy and your husband especially

    have a look through for meals you might like!

    http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php#3


    I have done mongolian lamb, lamb korma and moroccan lamb IN the thermie, steamed chicken to make a warm chicken and pumpkin cous cous salad...you can make and steam sausages.

    I fell in love with the swedish meatballs (in the meat on the menu cookbook) - steam the meat balls on top of the sauce cooking, and serve with the creamy mash - O...M..G!!

    You can still cook a steak on the BBQ or on a griddle, and maybe have your sides - salad or vege or some dinner rolls being made in the Thermie

    I'd love a Thermy but being vegan and rarely following a recipe I worry I wouldn't be able to convert many recipes.

    I can see how "normal" eaters would benefit but not sure if our family would.

    Thanks girls. I've reclaimed my phone! He is stoked about the ice cream. Fiveinthebed, I showed him the link you posted, thanks for that.

    Husband handed phone back to me and said, "We want one, we need one... we can't afford one." I think it will be a next year's purchase, and for a machine that will last and last, I can hold out till then. When we do get one, I will think of you ladies as my mentors

    What do you no longer buy?
    Packet mixes or jar sauces.
    Stock.
    Baked goods except museli bars.
    Yoghurt.
    'Instant' food.

    Basically I buy whole foods 99% of the time.

    What do you buy that you didn't used to?
    More herbs!
    Yoghurt culture.

    Really just buy more fresh whole food.

    Do you think you're saving money, and if so how much?

    My bill went from $300 per week to under $200. We went preservative free and we booted most additives.

    I've had my thermy for 2.5 years now so I've saved myself $11,000

    Ok, so you are also my hero. My hall of fame is growing fast!

    Thanks for your response, Thermolicious.

    Now all I need is a Thermomix! Minor detail

    Over the last few days I've heard a lot about this Thermomix and how it would improve our kitchen/save money and time. I would like to ask those of you who own one how does it cook meat & 3 veg? Can it steam veg & bbq sausages? Can I cook a good t-bone?

    I don't want to spend the rest of my life eating risotto & soup.
    hahahah are you and my husband twins? i am pretty sure everytime hubby gets home from work and i serve up something that is not meat and veg in some form he groans LOL

    Ok well I don't exactly belong here as I only just bought a bellini imposter at target LOL... Am quite enjoying it. Hubby was skeptical but whaddayaknow... he's used it a bit too haha he can't resist a gadget!

    So far I've made

    Veg stock concentrate (if anyone could post a pic of how their's looks at the end in the thermomix i'd be so grateful as I don't know if I cooked mine long enough)

    White/cheese sauce for cheesy cauli/broc

    grating lots of cheese

    apple and sultana porridge in the mornings for brekky

    tuna mornay (that was yum) did the pasta on stove

    vanilla and chocolate custard (not 100% got that one perfect yet)

    risotto (YUM)

    Oh and made a ton of buttercream icing for my sons bday cake

    Square 777 you sound like you've been busy. How much did your machine cost you?

    Fiveinthebed, your stock looks fantastic.
