New Kitchen Toy

I feel dorky because I am so excited about this! I think it's a sign of growing up when you start getting excited about things like home decor or, in this case, kitchen appliances. As I had mentioned before, I've really been into smoothies lately. They are such a perfect and easy way to eat healthy and still enjoy something delicious. Plus, I love that I control what goes into it.

Unfortunately, my blender did not feel the same way. It had been making weird noises and the other day it threw in the towel. It was 5:00 a..m. when it decided to stop working and instead shoot parts of itself at me as I tried to control the noise out of fear The Husband (or neighbors) would slaughter me. I was left with no smoothie and a mess of black dust and chunks to clean up.

Yesterday, we decided to take the plunge and buy a Vitamix blender. Although it was pricey, it does so much that I feel the cost is justified. It can knead bread and make hot soup right in the blender. Plus, the blades are made for handling whole fruits and chunks of ice.

It came with this cookbook full of delicious looking recipes and has a seven year warranty. I really am so excited to start using it and step up the healthy eating. I've never been a huge fan of fruits (i just barely had grapes and strawberries for the first time in like eight years) but I can drink a smoothie with almost anything in it. 

The best thing is that it's so easy to clean! After use, you just add warm water and a little soap to the blender and turn it on. It basically cleans itself. Now that I sound like a Vitamix sales representative, I'm going to stop this post. Before that, please let me apologize for the floor picture. My kitchen is basically a cave so pictures there are always weird.
