Vitamix - almost voted off the island
I showed up at the demo at WS tonight. I am one of about 15 others including several couples. They asked who has a Vitamix and all hands went up except mine. I verified and said - who DOESN'T have one - and yup, I was the only one who didn't already own one... As newbies arrived, I checked and they all owned one as well.
So, it appears - I either needed to splurge or get voted off the island...Everyone was cheering me on - talk about peer pressure....
Did I take the plunge - yup and snagged the dry blade as well as I like a variety of flours and hate to buy 1 lb bags for a couple of TBS of flour (rice, oat, chick pea, etc)
Probably won't take it out of the box until the weekend. So, will be watching for super recipes to try.
Definitely want to grind my own almond butter and make hummus.
I am a terrible soup maker - not sure if this will improve my odds - i don't cook with salt, so hard to make soups without salt....
:-) until the bill arrives.. but Uncle Sam is buying this one.
