Aging. It's what happens when you least expect it. One day you're full of joie de vivre, the next, you're pureéing fruits and vegetables and making green smoothies because your digestive system went on strike. It's so not fair. I don't even have dentures.
While Mr. Wild Dingo was in the US last week spending money on iPads and gadgets (for me of course), I joined in on the spending fun. I bought myself a Vitamix and started blending. This blender was beaucoup bucks, but it rocks. Much better than my KitchenAid at home. It even can heat soup.
This flavorful butternut squash soup wasn't an ideal main dish but would be excellent as an amuse bouche. So while I dream about eating solid foods again someday soon, I have at least 387 recipes that I can try in my new kitchen toy.
Don't waste your time at the doctor's office. Spending money is the only cure to relieve aging pains.
