Cooking with the Thermomix: for meat lovers

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.

Now that I can finally eat again (after the tonsil surgery), I try to enjoy weekend breakfasts even more - you know it's my favorite meal of the day. Really though, it usually turns out to be a brunch. This weekend I served a heart-toast, one with avoado ...
