On Sunday I decided to make strawberry and banana smoothies.
I was getting the blender out of the cupboard when Number 1 Son pointed out that we have a smoothie maker!
But I like the blender, it is a 1 braincell piece of kit, I can use it without causing mayhem in the kitchen.
Number 1 Son looked at me disapprovingly.
I put away the blender...
Checking that the smoothie maker was properly assembled, I loaded it up with strawberries, bananas, milk and ice cream. Yeah, this was gonna be good!
I hit the power button.
Noisy, but nothing disasterous.
Tried a bit.
Yeah, that WAS good.
A pink puddle forming underneath the smoothie maker?
Damn thing was leaking!
I lifted up the container part of the machine and sure enough, my precious liquid was oozing out of the bottom.
No worries, I grabbed the bottom and twisted to tighten it up.
Twisted the WRONG WAY...
2 pints of smoothie makes a very big mess...
I blamed my son...
