Magic Bullet

Braden bought a Magic Bullet blender with some of our Christmas money (thanks, Grampa!) a few days ago, and we have just been going crazy with it. I'm almost sick of smoothies! I'd been making them with our regular blender, but the Magic Bullet has different glass sizes, so you can just make enough for you and then flip it and drink it right out of the container. The lady who we stayed with for Ryan and Vicki's wedding had one, and I guess Braden paid a lot of attention to it! You can make sauces and chop vegetables with it, too, but I haven't been too impressed with the latter purpose; it seems to puree them instead of chopping them. Braden especially has been experimenting a lot with it. He stopped by a Cash & Carry, too, and got some smoothie base (peach and strawberry), non-fat yogurt, mango base, and raspberry sprinkles, so we've been having fun with that, too. I personally have found that adding too much of the base makes it WAAAAAY sugary, so I just like a little bit in there. All in all, it's been a really good buy for our family. Jenna's obsessed, too. Now she asks for "foo-by" instead of "mummy".

By the way, it was not $99; Braden got it for half that at Costco.

All this talk of smoothies...makes me want one. I haven't had one in over a year.
