magimixing in minutes

May 3, 2010 at 7:58 pm 7 comments

It’s true to say I’ve not fully incorporated my MagiMix food processor into daily life yet.  Or used any of the special features that justify it’s ‘twice-the-price-of-your-average-food-processor-but-worth-it‘ reputation.  You could argue it’s an expensive way to improve your grating, blending and chopping experience in the kitchen.  And is it worth it?  Really? Absolutely.  My fingers and time are very valuable to me and both are saved every time I use my MagiMix!  George is able to breath easy knowing I’m not trying to create skinny vegetable sticks and slices with inappropriate knives and I’m relieved that reaching my next birthday with all 10 digits intact is looking more likely.  I’m enjoying the skin on my knuckles being grate free and my smoothies being super smooth.  The time saving I hear you ask?  Believe me when I say I can make a huge batch of coleslaw in minutes.  Trialling my MagiMix in the middle of a cold and snowy January called for an alternative take on the usual mayonnaise laden version.  I used Spiced Damson Ketchup to add a little warmth and colour to the onion, carrot and red cabbage mix.  The damson ketchup was an accidental by product of frozen damsons creating too much liquid in a batch of Spiced Damson Chutney.

    That looks AMAZING! I hate mayonaise but love coleslaw-esque salads; I must try this!

    The coleslaw looks colourfull and appetizing especially on a cold day! I am not the owner of a MM so I do know what grated knuckles feel like!

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
