Mashed Pumpkin

I made some mashed pumpkin for baby’s first foods, other than Farex.

Peeled and cut up a whole Jap Pumpkin. It ended up being about 1.8 kilos of pumpkin. I put in 1 kilo of pumpkin, then chopped it for 20 seconds on speed 7. Added 1 MC of water, then cooked it at 100C on speed 3.

Once it was done, I pureed it some more at speed 8 for 20 seconds.

Nice and creamy and baby LOVES it!

It did stain the bowl though ….

Restaurant Quality

An interstate friend visited us tonight. I decided I’d make Thermomix Risotto – it’s what we now call the Mushroom Risotto. Nice, easy and no fuss. I added 8 rashers of shortcut bacon to saute with the onions, but the rest of the recipe stayed the same.

“Oh, wow! This is restaurant quality!”, exclaimed our friend.

If that’s not a success, I don’t know what is. 😀
