Skinflint Sunday: Bake your own bread, grow your own vegetables and make your own stock.


A couple of days ago I pulled out the turkey stock I made from the Chistmas turkey and threw in some home-grown veggies and some pasta remnants. Then I made some bread dough in the thermomix.
A cob loaf and some bread rolls. From this:

    I was given a demonstration of the fabulous Thermomix at the daughter’s last week. It is an amazing machine. We made the Thermomix equivalent of stock cubes, and then some creamy chicken and mushroom risotto…very kewl! I also tasted some mango sorbet she had made … noice also.

    It looks so yummy!
    I used to make my own stock and freeze it in meal sized plastic tubs. I never got the hang of making bread, but my older daughter did quite well at it.
