This morning at 8:05 AM in what used to be my kitchen,  half a frozen banana, orange juice, cantaloupe and casaba where piled into my food processor. Everything seemed normal at first but then disaster. The only thing I can figure out is that one of the blades locked onto the frozen banana and caused a swirling motion within forcing pureed fruit to come pouring out of every seam and out the top.

It wasn't pretty! My once white cabinet doors are now streaked with orange goo as well as the counter, the floor, the dogs and my clothing.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident, the dogs seemed to enjoy it and Angelica (our wonderful cleaning lady) is due this afternoon.

Unfortunately, Angelica only understands about every third word of english and my Spanish does not go beyond "Una cervesa por favor", so to leave her a note of explanation may result in strained relations with Mexico.

So my question is: Is it time to buy a decent blender or do I just give Angelica a raise?

It's a melon, maybe I spelled it wrong, might be "cassaba", no that does not look right either.

joe....i am so sorry but i can't stop laughing......there's nothing worse than making that kind of a mess...........thank God noone got hurt and once cleaned, your kitchen will recover.............
   so if i read this and i had been making smoothies,i would cut bananas,strawberries and even melon(including casaba)in small slices before freezing to take the strain off my blender....niki

TOO FUNNY!  I think casaba melons are similar to musk melons, right?

I think Niki is right about slicing the fruit.  I use frozen bananas in my smoothies, too, but I finely slice them before I freeze them.

Your story reminded me of an even worse kitchen mess when I was a kid.  My mother used to use a pressure cooker for everything.  I guess it was trendy in the fifties and sixties to put good food in a pressure cooker and cook it till it was ruined!  Anyhow, one day, her favorite concoction of beef and kidney stew (ugh!) blew the top off the pressure cooker.  The walls and ceiling were COVERED with brown juices and particles of kidneys.  The smell in the house was unbelievable, as cans of Lysol spray tried to mask the smell of pressure-cooked kidneys.  SO....be thankful your explosion was fruit instead of organ meat!

Thanks for the laugh (and remember not to fill your blender too full!),

Mary

Thank you ladies:

I will be slicing frozen fruit hereafter and I love Tori's dancing produce.  It is good to have friends.

Comedian Andy Andrews once said..." Dilemma + Time = Humor "

He has a wonderful book out called "Storms of Perfection". This book is about the trials and tribulations successful people went through before they became famous or rich. It is heart warming and also very inspirational. We all on LDL are going through our storm of perfection. We have a our good days and bad...we still have mountains to climb and oceans to swim but with the support people like Niki, Roger, Mary and Tori give us we can all make it.

God Bless,
RH

Smoothie Disaster in Van Nuys........Epilogue:


I arrived at my front door around 6:45 PM last night expecting an orderly living room and the distinctive scent of pine cleaner in the air.

Finding neither I came to the conclusion that Angelica had not come that day.

I crossed the living room and gently placed the take out in my hands on the dining room table (Sharkey's Naked Menu of course) and glanced into the scene of that morning's disaster.

The orange goo of my AM mishap was completely gone, I only wish I could say the same for the 60,000 ants that did the job.

I then did what any reasonable man would do............................Closed the kitchen door, ate dinner and went to the movies (Ironically, we saw a film about a possessed house).

ROFL!!!

You see, *this* is why LDL works .... it's not just about the amounts and types of foods you eat, it is about the *family* that we all have become. Friends who understand one another, (and can laugh, cry, pray with, and encourage one another!) are what truly make the LDL way of life worth living. You all are fantastic!!! 

Come on now ... group  hugs!

personally,i'd rather wait until roger is on oprah....no,he isn't scheduled yet...but it's only a matter of time...AND,it won't surprise me if we hear soon that he's going to be on "the view"...in that case,i'm a train ride away.....when i was in the audience of "the view" with roger and his family,i was the only one in this area...now tara lives right near me,kathy is upstate ny and tom lives in jersey..it would be wonderful to have a few success stories in the audience to support roger and his promotion of this program..................niki

Yes, it would sure be fun to have a big ol' meet & greet gathering of Let's Do Lunchers, wouldn't it?  Vegas doesn't appeal to me.....in fact, I was supposed to attend a catering managers' conference there 2 weeks ago and was thrilled when it was cancelled.  It's like 113 degrees there in the summer time, right??? 

A get together somewhere where I can volunteer to do the cooking instead of us having to eat out in restaurants would be really fun!!!  Somewhere midway between those of us on the east coast and those on the west would be perfect.  Does someone have a ranch in Texas we can borrow?? ??? ;D
