The bottom picture is what I'm most excited about. I found an Immersion blender for five bucks! Woot to the Woot! I am going to make soooooooooo many soups! I have wanted one of these for so long, but it wasn't something I was willing to buy new since I already have a blender. It's definitely what I would consider a luxury, and I was almost doing cartwheels when I saw it. Again, it looks like it's never been used. I also got this George Foreman grill for five bucks! High Carb Hannah has been making hash browns on a George Foreman grill and they look so delicious, and also so easy. I tried to make low oil hash browns in a pan and they weren't my favorite. The thrift shop I was at also had a dehydrator, many nice blenders, and even a brand new hand mixer.
So yesterday was a great potato day. I had sweet potatoes for breakfast which were so delicious, and I had a huge green salad along with a green juice for lunch.
For dinner I put my well scrubbed grill to use and made some hash browns. I added some sauteed orange pepper leftover from lunch, and onion and added it to two grated russet potatoes. The grill is freaking fracking awesome! The potatoes totally got browned and crispy like what they look like at restaurants where they are bathed in butter to achieve that look. And clean up is a dream! Not a thing stuck and it takes no oil or water or anything. Man, where have I been. When I'm done with this cleanse, I am going to make so many sandwiches and grilled tofu, and Portobello mushrooms, and so many things!
Whew, this post went on a bit! But one more thing, I just read on either Twitter or Instagram this morning that Ben&Jerry's new vegan ice cream will be rolling out to stores in three to four weeks! At least in the U.S, I hope they spread the vegan love all over at some point! So, all around it's been an invigorating week.
