But surprisingly we did find a mini food processor at the PX, the only one that was 220 voltage and snagged it up. Let me tell you, this thing works like a beast. I made homemade salsa in 10 minutes or less and all I had to do was push a tiny button. My hand was thankful!
.....and so was my belly. We ate our weight in salsa and chips during lunch yesterday, to the point where I was still full when it was time for dinner. I actually gained two pounds.... TWO pounds from eating salsa yesterday. Ya, Jon said it was just water weight gain, I'm pretty sure it's TWO pounds of salsa in my stomach that hasn't digested yet! But it was totally worth it especially since we haven't had good salsa since July when we were back in the states.
Ted's watch out, my salsa might be better!
But, some other great things about my mini beast of a food processor is that it is also a mixer and a blender. So we can use the tiny whisk to mix ingredients and the blender to make smoothies! Woohoo, I'm super excited about our new find!
I was so happy yesterday, all giddy and squeally, Jon said "Who knew a food processor would make you so happy." Yep, it's the little things like mini blenders that make me happy.
A couple of movies that Jon and I rented this weekend.
"Nights in Rodanthe"
Like I've said MANY times on my blog, I am not a chick flick kinda girl, but I love both Diane Lane and Richard Gere. This movie is based on the Nicholas Sparks book "Nights in Rodanthe." (I'm sure you already know, he is the author of "The Notebook.") Honestly, I really liked the movie a lot, it had a wonderful story, but I've never cried so much in my life over one single movie. It is an understatement to call this a tear jerker, it was more like a sob-jerker. I cried so hard that my eyes are almost closed shut. I looked in the mirror this morning and couldn't help but laugh, I look hysterical. When I showed Jon he couldn't help but giggle too and say "awe you look cute." RIGHT, I look like I got into a boxing match or hit by a mack truck! Cute ha!
Darn you Nicholas Sparks you get me every time!
And last but certainly not least, we bought Casablanca from Amazon and recently received it in the mail.
I was so excited because I LOVE old movies. I want to start a better collection of these older movies, because I want my children to be able to watch them. These movies were so dramatic and original. I loved the way they talked and how they dressed and their acting style. I love that the movies are in black and white, it makes it more romantic. Humphrey Bogart, what a classy man!
