A sad day…an ode to my bullet blender
Well, it’s a sad day here at LLPF. Anyone who follows this blog on a regular basis knows how much I love my bullet blender and how I swear by it. Well, today, I am sorry to say, my bullet blender moved on. It died. I went to make a pre-work breakfast smoothie (a rarity for me in and of itself–I never have that kind of time before work) and found my bullet could no longer blend.
It could, however, screech like an electric screwdriver stripping a screw and send shards of rubber flying everywhere while heating up and emitting a lovely burned plastic smell. So, alas, the bullet is no more.
And I still have the components of an unblended smoothie sitting in a cup in my fridge:
To honor the great life of my dear friend, here’s a look back at some of my favorite creations, courtesy of the bullet:
The good news? Costco has a pretty good sale on these things, so I have a feeling my counter will no longer be bullet-less by tonight! Which means that sad, unblended smoothie can be blended once and for all!
Until then, RIP bullet blender. You were a dear friend and a culinary genius.
