    Nintendo Switch

    My understanding is your account and save files are stored on the Switch built in storage, and its just the game files on the external storage - can't recall if the switch menus have an SD card format option or not but when you pop an empty card in the game tiles let you just choose to redownload the game again onto the new card It's meant to work that you can copy the files across from the old card to the new but seems for a couple of us that didn't work on a Mac - plus my internet is pretty quick so won't take forever to just re-download the whole lot

    I had the same issue on the mac last time round and had to redownload everything - when my 400gb card arrives won't even bother trying to copy.
  3. I’ve spent a lot of money on wheels, with a Fanatec CSR elite and logitech for xbone sat in my spare room unused now. The Fanatec was amazing and the X360 era Forza and Horizons gave wonderful grip and feel, then something with the drivers or implementation of FFB went downhill and things like the newer Horizons never felt as good and always seemed to have issues.

    Thermomix

    I actually merged up 3 recipes I found, saw some added cumin, some paprika another a bit of agave, different amounts of tahini. The more we have it out the more it gets used This weekend made tomato pasta sauce, blitzed up the base for meatballs (minus the meat), hummus, pitta dough, cookie dough (which we froze for emergency biscuits) and the sorbet (which we make every weekend). I know it's a luxury expensive device but feels like I'm just scratching the surface with it. Glad to hear you appear to have bonded with it too @The Hierophant
  5. as a final cherry just read that the amazing sequence that saw us run 2 and get 4 overthrows for 6 should have been given as 5, due to the timing of the throw in relation to the crossing of the running batsmen ! https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/jul/15/england-ben-stokes-mistake-umpire-cricket-world-cup-final-six-runs-new-zealand
  6. some good prices on Amazon Prime day on big SD cards, I'll double post from that thread as suspect many in here have an eShop habit that fills up storage - I've just gone for a 400gb which should see me fine for years. https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-microSDXC-Memory-Adapter-Performance/dp/B074RNRM2B?ref_=Oct_DLandingS_PC_965d5514_10&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

    Thermomix

    Yeah, now I know how easy and lovely the base is those variations would work a treat - quite like idea of making the hummus with roasted garlic for that mellower flavour. we started pretty classic but did add some cumin and topped with some paprika for a little kick.

    Thermomix

    In the most middle class post ever I made up dough for pittas and hummus in this today. Pittas were nice, as any fresh bread is, the hummus was amazing. Got to a great consistency and its all zingy with lemon and fresh tasting. Thats another thing I won’t be buying ready made again.
  9. yeah - I always cook it a bit under, mix the pasta and whatever is going on it thoroughly on the original cooking day when potting up, then reheat in the microwave on a lower power setting than I use for other more resilient dishes (like stews and mash) so it doesn't go hard.
  10. Another Serious Eats classic - this is quite involved with a few steps to get a good result, but its another all time fave and really re-invents in my mind what a good meatball & sauce can actually be. https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/01/italian-american-beef-pork-meatballs-red-tomato-sauce-recipe.html#comment-anchor-40576 Thermomix really helps out for the sauce (which I made a day in advance) and then for chopping up a lot of the meatball ingredients, I got a far better texture this time with the onion, garlic, gel stock, parsley & pancetta much better chopped) - I follow their technique though and then bring the mince and other ingredients together in a stand mixer, the Thermomix would just blitz it all to a meat paste, which you don't want. For dishing up I cook the pasta al dente as will be reheating, and mix it into some sauce so its well coated, before adding more on top. Even got a little bonus extra 2 ball lunch pot.
  11. enjoy, you'll find it very hard to resist the shop, every bit of Weber BBQ gear and accessories going and a huge assortment of imported rubs and sauces (at import prices) - I always walk out with way too much stuff and a desire to buy giant garden umbrellas and furniture.

    I know nothing nice is ever said on Twitter but the responses to this just now are predictable
  13. I've bought a bigger freezer for storage, so needed a good high count dish for stock - luckily this Japanese curry is one of our favourites - its essentially the Serious Eats recipe, which I've tweaked a little having cooked this several times. Its pretty quick to make as long as you've made up the spice blend in advance, which I do and then get a couple of uses out of. https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2018/01/print/japanese-curry-kare.html

    I think its like Storage Wars, they know we only came with $1000 in cash and are trying to bid us up on a locker.

    Arsenal

    outbid by Spurs apparently - wonder if it was us dithering or him/his club delaying hoping to smoke out an auction for a supposed hot talent.
