After letting our new blender take a break over the weekend, I decided to dive in full-force today. For dinner we had:
Cheddar Broccoli Soup
And for dessert we had:
I decided to use the blender's cookbook suggestion of blending the soup for a really long time to heat it up in the blender. It did heat up and everything was blended beautifully and it tasted really good -- but the texture was beyond strange. All that blending whipped in all kinds of air and it was like eating soupy foam. Not pleasant. Note to self: mix and then heat in the microwave.
The orange sorbet was good -- more icy than smooth -- but the kids liked it. They didn't even notice that I snuck some carrots in there. Maybe I need smaller ice-cubes -- I have not been satisfied with the texture I'm getting on my iced desserts.
