I bought a Ninja food processor today and couldn’t wait to make something with it. So I washed it out, made a place on the countertop for it, and started throwing food in it – chicken, onion/chives, red pepper. I thought that sounded like chicken salad so figured that would be good, but since I don’t like cucumber very much, I threw that in too, figuring the other foods would hide the taste. Then I hit blend.
It didn’t go so well. I suppose the chicken shouldn’t have been at the bottom. It got pureed. Sick!
Meanwhile, the vegetables were still on top and unchopped. I guess I shouldn’t fill the blender. (It makes sense not to put food in past the blades.)
A minuter later, I had something that looked like dip. Not what I intended, but being creative and still enthusiastic about my new Ninja, I washed some celery and spread it on it. Yuck!
So then I put the celery in the blender and hit the pulse button a few times. That thickened it a bit, but it still looked disgusting.
I couldn’t throw it away. I had to find a way to eat it. So I made a piece toast, spread it on it, and took a few bites. It wasn’t very good, but Buddy thought it smelled great, so I broke him off a bite. And he loved it.
And that’s another thing I love about my Buddy. He likes my cooking!
