Skippy has a new toy. Actually I received it a few months ago but today was the first time I used it.
A Cuisinart Food Processor and oh, tadpoles this is one sweet appliance.
I have beans and cornbread on the menu tonight and since all of my little choppers are either out of town or at school I was facing some pretty serious vegetable dicing to do. No worries. I like to stand and chop, chop, chop - I find it relaxing. But today? Not so much.
And then I spied it, sitting on the counter.
A quick perusal of the owners manual and within 5 minutes I had finely sliced a whole onion, a bunch of celery, 4 carrots and diced a couple of tomatoes. Awesome! Dumped all of that in with the presoaked beans [kidney & navy], a ham hock, some spices, water and viola!
Crockpot beans. With yummy, buttery cornbread. Nothing like it on a rainy Monday.
Additional bonus to this appliance is that the three pieces come apart easily and pop right into the dishwasher. WOOT! My kind of clean up.
