Today we really gave our new blender a workout. For an after school snack, Frances made:
fresh spinach leaves
It was so good she had to make two batches. I feel so healthy!
Then for dessert after dinner I made:
whole wheat flour (I ground the wheat myself in the blender)
sugar (only 1/2 cup -- my normal brownie recipe calls for four times as much!)
a can of black beans (instead of butter)
Though you couldn't taste the beans, you could taste the whole wheat flour and lack of sugar. They were pretty good, though -- especially when you topped them with...
Vanilla Ice Cream
half and half (only one cup to make five cups of ice cream)
powdered milk (I love recipes where I can finally use up my powdered milk)
ice cubes (four cups!)
This was surprisingly good -- especially since it was mostly ice and very little cream. It did melt quickly, though. We're looking forward to making some delicious sorbets with this new blender.
