Song of the day: Needtobreathe, Keep Your Eyes Open
Moment of beauty:
So, I've given up... I have been working with little $5 food choppers for many years. Amazingly, I've never broken any of those... I just wear them out.
Every recipe that calls for the use of a food processor becomes an annoying task... I have to break apart the amounts and "process" in 2 or 3 batches, rather than just dumping it all in like I see Ina Garten or Giada deLaurentis do on Food Network. I always watched the simplicity and ease of use with jealous eyes.
Yesterday though, I really wanted to make a recipe for apple butter, but knew it would be a mission with my little chopper. So I finally broke down and made a trip to the dreaded Walmart.
One panic attack and $69 later, I am now the owner of a fancy new food processor!! It's GREAT!! It comes with two bowls - a big one and a little one, a shredder/slicer and all parts are dishwasher safe. Best part? For $7, I bought a 2 year warranty, so if I break this bad boy, I'll get a new one for free!
