I could try and recap the last week for you, but I don’t see that being particularly entertaining, so let’s just pretend I posted yesterday, shall we?
Despite what is probably the most tumultuous time in my life, I’m sticking to the plan. Down a total of 8 lbs in just about 2 weeks – and I’m not complaining! The one thing you can control in a time where everything else is right outta my control.
Yesterday, incase you didn’t know, is a newly created national holiday. That’s right – it’s National Blender Day. Who created the holiday, you ask? Well, I did. I have been waiting for Blender Day to arrive for a month or so now, and I have to say, it did not disappoint.
I have complained about my cheap-o blender more than once, and the less than fantastic spinach chunks it leaves in my otherwise delicious smoothies. I’ve blogged about it, I’ve tweeted about it, and I’ve considered fancy-schmancy blenders that I could only dream of owning.
Until Blender Day.
Apparently someone was actually listening when I complained, and watching when I used one of my 10,000 kitchen gadgets to puree soup, or make raw donut holes.
Here’s what the mail man brought me yesterday…….
And this isn’t one of those situations that happened when you were a kid, and the box was for a Super Nintendo (yes, I’m old), but inside was a pair of wool socks and a calligraphy set. IT'S A REAL LIVE BLENDTEC TOTAL BLENDER!
Yesterday was spent looking through the fridge and freezer for things to blend, and here’s what I know so far:
- Banana Soft Serve is so EASY in a Blendtec
- Frozen pineapple makes a delicious sorbet with no added liquid
- I have too many canned goods I’ll never use
- you can blend an iPad in an Blendtec blender
Okay, the last one I didn’t do myself, but I did watch it on YouTube.
I see many, many…MANY days of happy blending in my future! If I weren’t already married, I’d be seriously considering marrying Matt from Blendtec, this machine is THAT good!
I’m fully immersed in the cool cookbook it came with, and am finding all kinds of exciting new recipes to try that I couldn’t make before.
What’s one piece of kitchen equipment you own that you couldn’t live without? What would you LOVE to own, but don’t have yet?
