I got an email this morning that the Vita Mix I ordered would arrive today! Woohoo! Now, granted, spending nearly $600 on a glorified blender is ridiculous BUT it is GREAT! Look at the difference for heavens sake!
Since I had received the email of its pending arrival, we made a trip to a grocery with a good produce department and were ready for an adventure when we returned to find the Vita Mix on the front porch. First adventure was a green smoothie.
Let’s see. Grapes. an orange, pineapple, banana, carrot, spinach, an apple and ice. YUMMMMMM! It looked like split pea soup ( I do not like split pea soup) but it was great. I look forward to future experiments. Certainly not worth the price on its own, but it show promise.
I am going to try grinding wheat berries into flour tomorrow. Sounds fun.
We went to the nursery to buy another dozen tomato plants today. FOR SURE, I am starting seeds again next year. Just those dozen plants (along with two 4 packs of flowers) cost $43 today. Ridiculous….but we really use all those canned tomatoes and do not want to live without our own canned tomatoes…so bite the bullet.
