Cooking with the Thermomix: for meat lovers

0 Permalink

Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend just as much as we did! Although it rained non-stop yesterday, we had a lovely time at a friends home party. I even got to bake some muffins (vanilla with blueberry and chocolate ones!) and generally we ate like kings yesterday.

Shortly before we went to the home party (not knowing that there would be a cook), we cooked up a meat recipe with our Thermomix at home. The recipe (called Bunter Bauerntopf in German) is super easy and we used one from the German Magazine “mein ZauberTopf“.

Cooking with a Thermomix really is dead easy. I have always wanted one, then became skeptical in the beginning of having it and now I am starting to slowly love it. It really takes so much work from you and can basically do everything from cutting, heating things up, keeping the warm, baking bread, making soups, weighing ingredients, to even making ice cream. Really, it can do almost everything. I believe the new ones even have a function where you can add all ingredients into the Thermomix and tell it to cook at a later time so the food is ready when one gets home / or wants to eat later. So cool! I do still enjoy actual cooking and taking on the whole work once in a while, so I will most likely continue with both strategies!

Coziness in Miami

Good morning! I still have so much content left from my travels from 3 weeks ago. Looking through my phone last night I just found these photos again and searched through their website. Anthropologie is a store I stumbled upon on my little Saturday shopping spree in Miami – and I fell in love. It has this Scandinavian charm to it (and knowing me, you know I love everything from there) and I could have bought the whole store. They have such cute clothing pieces. What really struck me though, is their interior design pieces. There were so many bronze pieces, so many colorful, amazing plates, such great details everywhere – and so much stuff for my kitchen. However, there are some problems: my kitchen isn’t the greatest, my kitchen is already quite filled, my apartment in general isn’t all too empty (I love everything cozy for my home), and my luggage was already more than full. Good thing is, it didn’t kill my wallet. Yet again, I went on their online shop and fell in love, again. What are your favorite pieces? I am in love with the plates and dog-faces on them. And the bronze cups. Oh. Everything, really. Now I need to jump and go to the office though – so I’ll have to get back to this later tonight! xo
