We finally did it. We bought a refurnished Vitamix. You would never know it was used though-swear! Even came with a cookbook to get us started. We’ve been using it every day, twice a day at least:
We’ve been making juice instead of buying it. ^^^Above is strawberry lemonade, yum! A couple lemons peeled, water, and a couple handfuls of frozen strawberries. Gotta add a touch of sugar too. Still so healthy and fresh tasting. I’ve been making my version of ‘V8’..but I haven’t been counting the veggies/fruits in it so…a couple apples cut in half, piece of lemon, tomato, kale, celery..I think that’s it. So it’s a VF5: veggie fruit drink. I add water and some ice too. Lots of water, as I want a drink, not a veggie smoothie. That just sounds gross to me. Here is some salsa I attempted:
We’ve been making hot soups, and tomato sauce also. Taste so fresh, if you use fresh tomatoes, or at least hot house fresh smelling ones from the grocery store.
That leads me to my next subject: Spring Garden!! 🙂
My dear hubby made 3 raised plant beds for me. No more stooping forever pulling weeds!! Thanks, Mark! We have cucumbers in one of them, roma tomatoes in another, and lettuce in the third one. We plan to add one more next year.
We buy our plants from Fords on Main Street in Gastonia. Always strong, healthy plants! I’ll post more photos as they grow.
HAPPY FULL MOON!
