When Jeremy bought the Thermomix, I asked my Mum every day when it would be arriving. I got to use it for the first time two days after it arrived. Mum asked me a couple of weeks ago why I was so into cooking, especially, now that the Thermomix arrived. She asked if it was because it made cooking less scary? I said, “No, it was just because I knew it was worth over two thousand dollars so I just wanted to cook with it.”
Sometimes, you don’t have to have a meaningful reason to do something. You can do it just because you can. I created this recipe just because ‘I could’.
