So a few years back I begged my mother for a food processor for Christmas. I swore I would use it all the time. It would change my life. I could get rid of the electric mixer. A year later, I was having a fondue dinner party and we ran out of cheese and had to make more. Out came the food processor. But I hadn’t read the manual or watched the instruction video, so I had no clue how to use it. Luckily, my friend had one too and she went to work on it. The fondue was scrumptious.
Fast forward two more years. I just finished cleaning the cabinets and moved the food processor to the front of the cabinet, planning to use it soon.
Tonight I decided to make mini cheesecakes in ramikins. The recipe calls for a food processor. So minor problem. I still haven’t read the manual or watched the DVD tutorial. I know 5 years and I can’t get around to it? Well, priorities my friend. I haven’t vacuumed in 2 months either. Anyway, I decide to read about the three blades. Luckily, my friend left the mixer/chopper blade in. I decide what the hell, I’ll try it.
Wow, it was mind-blowing. So much easier than an electric mixer. So neat and tidy. It blended all the ingredients perfectly. The cheesecake mix was so smooth and easy to pour into the ramikins. I am stunned at how quick and easy that was. I gave myself a mental slap in the head for being such a dumbass about using it. I can’t wait to find something else to use it for. I may even go skim the manual right now.
What do you find yourself buying (swearing you’ll use it) and taking years to get around to it?
