You can call me crazy, you can call me what you want — I just recently brought a food processor into my home. Don't get me wrong, I always knew how popular they are, but I just never thought to purchase one myself.
If it weren't for my generous mother, I still may not own a food processor. I was recently visiting my mother while on vacation and mentioned that I wanted a food processor — to my surprise, she gave me hers! At the time I was obviously excited, thrilled and certainly thankful, but it wasn't until I got it home and used it for the first time that I realized the magnitude of this gift.
I eat a lot of salads and as much as I enjoy chopping all of the vegetables, sometimes I'm in a rush and just want them chopped already. The moment I put the cucumber in the processor with the slicing attachment, I about lost it. Before I could blink, the cucumber was so thinly chopped I couldn't believe it!
After I got over the initial shock and aw that is my new Cuisinart Food Processor — I began to imagine all of the wonderfully amazing things I'll be able to whip up at the drop of a hat. You can call me a late bloomer if you want, I'm just happy I finally got aboard this food processor ship — I just wish it hadn't taken me so long!
