1. Someone burnt out the motor on my precious liquidiser (that I love and adore) by trying to mix a very sticky cake in it. I cannot imagine life without a liquidiser for making soups and smoothies which are my go to healthy fast foods. I love this piece of kit so much, especially as I can just chuck it in the dishwasher afterwards.
2. Many of the recipes I want to try insist that you use a food processor, even basic things like Hummus. Perhaps a food processor would rekindle an interest in food? Good food I mean, I've NEVER lost interest in cake.
3. Aldi is advertising a very nifty and cheap food processor today and I'm trying to decide whether to drag Smiley out and use her
I know that I should do some research but there are hundreds of models available at every price point, which just makes me feel overwhelmed. When that happens I usually don't buy anything at all. So I asked the wise women of the Irish Parenting Bloggers Group and everything became a lot clearer. The lovely Sinead from Bumbles of Rice (one of my go-to recipe sites) shared an article that apparently tells you what you need to know about food processors and she also recommended this one from Argos which seems to tick all the slicing and dicing boxes, or something like that.
So now I'm on the horns of a food processing dilemma. What would you do? Go and brave the queues in Aldi? Pop up to Argos? Or stick with the wooden spoon?
