I've been very busy bumming around, letting all of my free summer time slip by. I had such high hopes at the start of the summer. Now that we are rolling into August, I think it is pretty safe to say that my long list of summer projects is ready to be tossed. The less I have to do - the less I get done. I'll be starting the core of the Dietetics program on the 23rd. I know I'm going to be really busy for the remainder of the year so I'm looking for ways to save time in the kitchen. I decided to order a VitaMix. I use my blender now almost every day. I really think the VitaMix is going to end up saving me a lot of time. I can't wait to have a blender that can handle solid veggies. It takes me almost 10 minutes to blend even a basic green smoothie now. The VitaMix is scheduled to arrive Monday so recipe experiments are on their way.
