After my kitchen was finally remodelled, I began thinking "toys." You may recall when I got my KitchenAid, however, before that I had treated crazycook to a Cuisinart food processor, and
long before, had bought a toaster oven, large enough to bake a whole chicken, holds an 8x8 pan or pie plate, and (they claim,) will bake a 12" pizza... Crazycook is now on a new quest, and would like thoughts/advice... I have an ancient (not quite
pre-electric) blender, but try as I might, I cannot get it to "puree" ice... Smoothies.. ok, that works I guess! Tequila, triple sec, juice and ice... I would guess it "qualifies." Face it, folks, there's nothing more refreshing when it's 115+ outside,
than a frozen Margarita! While I'm not remembering brand names, I really do think that it's time to get a "mega" powered blender, to concoct puree'd ice and additives, so if you have one that you really like, please share! I've also often (of late) thought
that I'd like a toaster oven with two racks, as for we two, I can bake an entire meal... Thus far, I've "stacked" pans which I doubt is the most effective method, but then, "we" can get inventive when the time comes... Again, thoughts, ideas, advice, will
Not long ago I responded to the two comments left on my last post, and while many a cook here at AR simply "provides" a web address, alas, I've never mastered the art of copy/paste, so sorry, but I did "guide" SB to an online, and will be more than willing,
due to my short commings, would certainly be willing to TYPE out the entire recipe on a post!
Regarding the last 24 hrs in the oggydoggy sitting biz, for me it has been terribly "trying." Our "guest" has NO idea what a "kitty" is, at least to be close and personal. Needless to say, while our cats are used to big dogs, they are NOT used to being "chased"
or "investigated." Poor things hid all day today, not to mention that Bablu was up much of the night (keepin me awake) terrorizing the poor felines... We've also experienced the issue of 3 male dogs, fighting for Alpha placement, and Bablu being "intact"
for breeding (he IS a beautiful animal!) has decided to "mark" his new territory... Just how many times this week am I going to have to mop up puddles? I've also been amazed, that by adding one dog to the brood, my floors have 3x the amount of yard debris
than with only our two! Ah, the life of a friend... 24hrs done of a week's sitting! Kitties are coming more to terms tho, which make me feel much better...
Crazycook prepared a beef stirfry this eve, which was ok, but not much more than! Should I make it again, I will DEFINATELY have to tweak the recipe, but that's the way things go, I believe! As far as the "dinner on a dime" goes, it really was an inexpensive
meal, I did add to a leftover - good for the fridge...
Now it's time for a salty snack before bed... early for me, but I guess the stresses of the day have taken their toll on this old body...
Be happy, be healthy, cook crazy!
