Vita-Mixin' it up

The husband and I decided to gift ourselves a bit early this year when Amazon had an unbelievable, jaw-dropping, nonnegotiable, kick-ass deal on the VITAMIX. We have been lusting after one of these for awhile, let's be honest-- YEARS! We are both teachers and have a child, so we always thought there was no possible way we could ever justify sending a small fortune ($600) on a blender. But, it is so much more than a blender... you can make just about anything in the Vitamix-- soups, healthy smoothiesMARGARITAS (can I get a "Yes, please!"?), nut butters, ice cream, dips, flour... the possibilities are endless. So, when I saw that the blender of our dreams was on sale for 40% off... I just HAD to buy it, and boy are we glad I did!

So, why haven't I been blogging over my Christmas break? Because we have been too busy cranking out food using our fun new toy and traveling to visit family!

We received our beautiful package in the mail on Christmas Eve, and left town to visit family on the 26th. We returned from NC on the 30th... and yet we still managed to create all this yumminess:

What we have made using recipes from Vitamix:
Thai Pumpkin Soup
Spinach Artichoke Dip (2x because it was so darn good the first time!)
Whole Fruit Margaritas-- absolutely delicious
Peanut Butter
assorted fruit smoothies
