Look what I've been given!!

Someone in my life rang up a few days ago and told me they'd bought me an early birthday present.

Can you imagine what it is?

A Thermomix TM 31!

I'll try and describe it, but please, if you don't know what that is, either follow the link or look it up. It is a bit hard to describe; yes, it's another kitchen appliance but it seems to be so much more. For example, in making pumpkin soup from a recipe (which I don't usually do, I'm more of a throw-it-all-in kinda gal), the machine chops the onions, sautees them, weighs your chopped pumpkin, cooks it, then blends it all to perfection. So in making soup, all I used was a chopping board, a knife and the thermomix. Oh, and a spoon to slop in a bit of concentrated veggie stock.

Gee, I think I'm sold!

It comes with a recipe book that has all the basics and more, I can't wait to try some more out. I can see myself divesting the kitchen of a few of the appliances we already have in favour of this one. I think I am going to be forever indebted to this person, who is not even family, she obviously knows I'll get a lot out of it, as she has one herself.

I am in culinary heaven!
