Power Tools

Well you guys know my beloved Beehive Blender bit the dust last week. I decided I would upgrade. I have been wanting one of these forever. I figured I'd put my cooking contest winnings to good use and get myself a treat...

Vita-Mix 1364 CIA Professional Countertop Blender with 2+ HP Motor.

Oh yeah come to Momma.


This baby has some power. It's like the difference between using a knife and a buzz saw.

Yeah I figured $70 for another Beehive plus my cooking contest winnings I was pretty close. I'm calling it a B-day gift to me :)

Something new to keep me occupied at 3AM. LOL. Looking around the house to see what I can whiz :)

We got a Vitamix years ago to help with some dietary issues my dd was having, and it was a godsend. I love that thing. But I reaaaally like the new models!!!
