Day 4, Stick-blender love

I think I’m in love with my immersion blender — that’s “stick-blender” for the laymen 🙂  My three top uses are: creaming cauliflower, making soup and making applesauce.  Tonight I was really jonesing for something sweet, like a dessert.  The Whole30 says no to sugar of any kind, including Maple Syrup and Honey.  What is a girl to do?  A girl is to go into her stash of several-month-old apples in her fridge and whip up a delicious Whole30 concoction.  It doesn’t have a name, but if it did it would probably be “Apple Almond Butter Deliciousness that Saved my Sanity” or something like that.  I cored and sliced an apple, added some cinnamon and almond butter and then used my immersion blender to blend it all together.  C’est magnifique!  Even after 4 days, my tastebuds are adjusting and certain fruits taste almost as sickeningly sweet as a Costco cake (vomit) used to.

So, I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but the new job is part-time, 24 hours per week.  That means that I work three 8-hour days.  Which means tomorrow is my Friday.  Happy “Friday” to me!
