Yesterday morning I was making the boys smoothies for breakfast and my blender decided it was only going to do about 1/3 of the job. Kinda like our Congress. Great, what do I do with a milky substance with chunks of frozen banana and chocolate? I struggled with the blender and convinced it to work a little more. Too bad we can’t do that with Congress. They seem content with just pushing out some bills but avoiding the chunks and calling it a complete job.
So, I convinced sons #3 and #4 that it was a chunky style smoothie. Maybe I could have a career in politics! I don’t think they even cared to be quite honest, because hey it was chocolaty! Chocolate coat anything and someone will eat it. Again, much like our Congress. I decided that the Osterizer blender needed an upgrade. A trip to Target helped me achieve that and a Ninja professional series blender (aka Samuari Jack) now proudly sits on my counter. Too bad Congressmen and women upgrades aren’t as easy or fruitful. Pun intended.
Samurai Jack looks fierce! I swear I think it could blend up a 2×4 into sawdust. I put Samurai Jack to the test and made smoothies yesterday afternoon. “That’s all you got?” Samurai Jack seemed to be saying as he quickly assaulted the frozen strawberries and bananas. I can’t wait to try mixing some “adult drinks” in this machine. I saw a recipe on Pinterest some time ago to use lime sherbet, Tequila, and ice for a quick and easy Lime Margarita.
There is a whole board on Pinterest for Margaritas. So many to choose from! Samurai Jack is going to be busy when the weather warms up. Wait! It’s near 80 today. Hmmm….
