My New (Expensive) Kitchen Toy
I'm very excited! I got a Vita-Mix last week. I've been wanting it for a while. I've been buying frozen mixed berries and making slushies and ice cream. I can hide all sorts of stuff in them! But my blender did a lousy job of mixing it up and there were always the seeds to chew on and chunks of berries and ice. I read a number of blogs and other sites that talked about the Vita-Mix Blender so I checked it out. Every time I made something that I would have made in the Vita-Mix I told my husband how much easier and tastier it would be in the Vita-Mix. Nothing like a nag, right?
We were going to go to a Home Show not far from here, where they were demoing and selling it. But I found out they were selling them at a local Cosco even cheaper, so I got mine there instead.
It's really loud, but really fun! :) I've made soup, ice creams, slushies, smoothies, bread, salad dressing and pesto. I bought the dry container and I've started grinding my own grain for my breads (I still use half white/half wheat, I just grind my own wheat and add some vital wheat gluten).
I hope to buy some raw peanuts tomorrow, roast them and grind them into my own peanut butter.
I hope it will make it easier for me to make fresh, chemical-free food for the family. So far so good!
