I’ve been busy with my new business, pretty flat out actually. I’ve launched a couple of new items, the testing, labelling and presenting take up a lot of time. Such great fun to do!
One of them is a curry paste, using mostly locally grown produce. What I don’t grown myself (or got plowed over by my chooks, long story), I get from other local home growers.
I use this curry paste a lot in cooking myself, a spoonful with roasted pumpkin and a coconut milk, makes a beautiful pumpkin soup. Curries, stir-fry, marinade or salad dressings become very quick and easy. And it keeps very well.
Another one that got launched last week is the Paleo Granola. It’s highly addictive, a huge hit with our family and friends. A delight to make too. I mill my own (winter) spices for it, making it a lot more pungent. A batch takes up a couple of hours in the oven, by then the whole house is perfumed.

Things you feel passionate about don’t take energy, they give you more.
And I’ve been asked for a local gym to do their after-workout snacks. Playing around with lots of ideas and recipes to work out a plan. So much fun!
Thermomix. I’ve been ogling them for a long time, I love their power and their diversity (cooking, chopping, blending, stirring, whipping, steaming,...), but I could never justify the hefty outlay to myself.
With the launch of a new model last year, a lot of people are wanting to upgrade. The new one looks fantastic and has a build in recipe book, but I happily bought the older model, second hand, for a price I could afford. I absolutely love it and am using it all the time. I’m cooking and creating with it a lot, I’ve always loved cooking from scratch. But now so much quicker and with a lot less washing up, sounds like heaven to me...
