Things I Love Thursday: My Hand Blender
When we moved to Scotland last fall, I boxed up all my wonderful kitchen appliances and left them in storage until our return to the States. I moved into a pretty well furnished flat here, but were some big gaps in our kitchen. I had no blender and no mixer, and I really wanted to blend and mix.
When you add in our very tight budget here, something creative had to be done. That's when I spotted these little hand blenders. You can find them here for under £5. And they can do most anything. Today I made myself a banana smoothie and then I used it to blend the creamed winter veggie soup in the crock pot.
My cheap little blender doesn't have all the fancy attachments that would make it a true replacement for all the appliances I'm missing, but it does enough to get me by and was priced just right.
