With the arrival of the nut milk bag (which still makes me giggle), we headed to Whole Foods for a wealth of healthy, organic fruits and veggies. Actually, the Hubs went in and I headed across the street to run other errands. I made it back just as he was checking out. Two of our cloth bags were already packed to brimming with produce. I gamely offered to carry one and promptly almost dropped it on the floor. Who knew vegetables could be so dense (or grocery bags so well packed!)? What I'm saying is, there were a lot of vegetables, y'all.
We arrived home and stored everything, but didn't have a chance to create in the kitchen that night. Actually, we haven't gotten to test out the nut milk bag at all because on Sunday, as life is just wild and full of surprises as are our amazing and wonderful friends, we found ourselves suddenly in possession of a new (to us) Breville juicer. By the time we got it home that evening, it was time to get the kiddos bathed and into bed. We had barely finished tucking them in before the Hubs bounded down the stairs like a kid on Christmas morning and started setting up the juicer.
I have to admit, as much as I love juice, my favorite thing about this juicer is watching the Hubs use it. It is hard to capture in words the absolute glee that was happening in our kitchen as he fed fruits and veggies into this crazy machine! He started with some bok choy... then added carrots... and celery and radishes... then apples, oranges, and cabbage went in... It was at about that point that I began to lose track. The man went juice crazy! It was absolutely delightful to watch, and had a delicious result, too. I honestly couldn't help but laugh while watching the whole process. I think he was rather disappointed when he ran out of vegetables! I am so excited and thankful that we have a new and more efficient way to juice (and that the Hubs has a new toy that makes him so happy!) In honor of his new passion, I felt compelled to personalize a meme for him (based on the phenomenal Hyperbole and a Half's work). I really think I captured his juicing method:
You're welcome, love!
