I didn't set out to buy a juicer this weekend. I had wanted a juicer for months - years, even - but they were always too expensive or the size of a small family car.
But then, Mom gave me several thousand coupons and this Cuisinart compact beauty revealed itself to me.
I may never eat solid foods again.
The adventure began with the utmost goal of recreating my favorite beverage from a local bookstore / cafe.
Apple Ginger Seltzer
And a 'Green Monster', modeled by my assistant
A bunch of green grapes
Handful or two spinach
Then a little bevy I like to call 'cleaning out the fridge'
large chunk of ginger
7-8 green grapes
A little fresh juice makes justifying dessert that much easier...
