Let's have smoothies...

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.

Stopped it.

Tried a bit.

Yeah, that WAS good.

What's that?

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...

I made a burger smoothie tonight - Wanted to see what happened if you threw a burger in the blender. It made mush... that tasted like burger.. go figure, hey? - Mmmmm pre-chewed burger! -

Anyway, I used to have a blender that made puddles. It went on a vacation to the dump

My daughter loves smoothies. She always uses a blender. That's mainly because we don't own a smoothie maker.

I think Zig's been drinking. Who puts a burger in the blender? ;-)

Ali - Ha. Ha. Ha. :-) Thought you might somehow!

Zig - I read about someone who had their teeth wired together so they would lose weight - could only drink, but not eat. They blended burgers and fries and sucked it up with a straw!

Terri - Blender is easier and just as good! Think you are right about Zig!

Jen said...

Ha! That is so something that would happen to me!

P.S. It's totally the son's fault. . .

Chief Rock Chef said...

Nonna - It didn't really stick but it was fun trying to blame him.

Jen - Yes, I can imagine you doing that somehow!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Oscar - that's funny! There are some things that just can't be wasted!

Sitting in Silence - I was!
