Note to self

Well a quick note to self – don’t attempt to cook meat pies AND apple cakes on a school night.

I made the shortcrust pastry and the meat pie filling in the Thermomix. I love my TM. It makes everything so very easy. BUT tonight I thought I’d broken it. I had just chopped up the beef and just wanted to take the lid off. The stupid thing wouldn’t come off! I tried so many times to remove it and it was stuck tight. Not very happy let me tell you. THEN I had a proper look and realised that I still had the dial set to closed lid. Yes I am an idiot and I am so laughing with you right now.

Anyway all was well with the TM – cue enormous sigh of relief.
So I ended up cooking Pear and Buttermilk cakes which I twisted to Apple and Buttermilk cakes cos that was what I had.


The meat pies just made it out of the oven. They smell good, hope they taste good too. Of course it’s nearly 10pm but I’m still going to eat my pie!

    The pie was great! Using proper pie plates makes a huge difference – thanks Kris!

    Oh yes I was getting so frustrated with it and not very happy with the world in general – than had a good look at the TM. It was a real “I am such a moron” moment *grin*
