Bread crumbs, bananas, and green beans

Thankfully, I'm feeling much better today and was finally able to test out our new food processor! This thing is great, just like we knew it would be. (Just like we knew it better be, for the price... :)

First, we threw in the slices of bread that had been drying on my counter since we ordered it a few days ago:

Then presto chango:

Awesome!! Let me tell you, trying to do this in a 2 cup processor was...not my favorite thing in the world. The Cuisinart makes this a breeze (and it's quiet to boot!)

Next, we moved on to the baby food. I chopped and steamed some beans, and once again, the before:

And after:

Woohoo! We also did some bananas, which turned out fabulous (it was Ava's first time trying them tonight!)

I got a call this afternoon in response to an email that I had sent Cuisinart a few days ago, and I'm happy to report that the plastic mixing bowls contain no BPA. Good job, Cuisinart. No, I'm not being paid to write this entry...but I should be, right??


  1. That's great Jamie!!! Ava looks impressed!

  2. I am so glad you like your food processor! Dad and I aren't happy with the Black and Decker he got me for Christmas so we are taking it back. Maybe I can convince him that Cuisinart is the way to go!

  3. Hey! Does this count as "learning something new" ?? =)

  4. hahaha I thought she looked a little nervous, Em!! I think Cuisinart is a great way to go mom, but they are definitely what you would call an "investment" :) Since we plan on making baby food for many more of your grandchildren, we thought it made sense for us!! I guess I learned something new...not really what I had in mind, though!!
