I had occasion to go shopping without Left Brain the other day and that always tends to lead to more impulse buys.
Several of the recipes in our new paleo lifestyle would be much easier with a food processor. Yeah, I know...I bought that little one earlier, but it only holds two cups. I realize now I could have used a larger one, and yet I don't want anything huge.
So voila! I spotted the Oster food processor and blender combo at Walmart and it seemed to just jump into my cart.
I had a chance to use it right away to grate the carrots needed to try the carrot cake cupcakes. At first I had the hand grater and a bowl out and could already sense the pain and frustration of trying to grate my baby carrots.
But I remembered (okay, it was within 24 hours) that I had this new powerful tool. I have to admit that it made me jump when it roared into action and make short work of those carrots. Oh the power!
Now I'm researching smoothies since I have a blender as well. I've never been interested in these before, but on a hot summer day it would be nice to have a flavored drink to sip and enjoy. I'll have to get advice from our daughter on those, as she is the Smoothie Queen.
