The Maiden Voyage

There is nothing like fresh pasta sauce made only moments before dinner.  The only way this sauce could be any better is if it was a lovely shade of red instead of the pale pink color that's the result of using out of season tomatoes.  Why we waited so long to get a Vitamix is beyond me.  And why we waited so long to use this one is another question that will forever remain a mystery.  However, now that we have seen how awesome it is I am pretty sure that we'll be blending up a storm!  Canning season is going to be a snap now that we are Vitamix owners.  Next up, getting the grinding blade so we can grind our own grain! Oh, the possibilities!  


  1. Yay for you! We love our vitamix so much!

  2. I felt the same way the first time I used mine...why did I wait so long to get one. We love ours, use it daily, sometimes two or three times a day :)


  3. I finally wore my hubby down and he just gave me the ok to get a Vitamix!! We are going to get one of the refurbished ones, but I can't wait! Going to order it later this week :) I can't wait to see what else you come up with using your Vitamix.

  4. How lovely! We are big smoothie makers around here. Fresh pasta sauce...amazing! We are in Haverhill Mass, how about you?

  5. Kim, I am so glad to know that I am not alone in that thought! :)

    Oh my gosh, this thing is just amazing! Tina, I am sure that the first time you use it you will fall in love like we did (and wish you had gotten one even sooner)! Looking forward to getting the grinding blade to grind our own grain! That will be so fun!

    Teena, we are in Marlborough! I grew up in a small town in CT and moved here after college graduation and have been here ever since! Looking forward to making smoothies with it soon. Maybe we'll try the green smoothie everyone raves about!
