My new toy
I worked at the local library years ago and I was asked to do food programs once in awhile. I usually was given a William- Sonoma gift card and I still have a few left with credit on them.
We don't have a Williams- Sonoma near us in Florida, maybe that's a good thing. Love that store! They are pricey but I usually wait for a sale. I have gotten some beautiful things after the summer season. They always did a huge sale in March and when we spent winters home that's when I would pick up the things I had my eye one.
I haven't been feeling well lately and most ladies I know would buy a new pair of shoes or clothing. Maybe they would get a manicure or a pedicure and a facial. What do I go? Williams- Sonoma!
There is a recipe I want to make. Carol added a fantastic yogurt bar recipe to Pinterest and my friend Angela also made it. Carol made strawberry and Angela made blueberry bars. My plan was to make Key Lime. The only problem, I didn't have Key Lime extract!
Looked it up on Amazon and it was expensive, so that was a no go. I thought Williams- Sonoma has stuff like that, check it out and see what they have. Dangerous place for me, if I go in I always come out with something.
They don't carry the Lime extract so naturally I had to look around. I saw a Popsicle maker. Pinterest has a tons of good recipes for Popsicles so I bought it.
Once I paid for it I noticed a little machine that makes zucchini pasta. Those who know me I do not like regular pasta. I'll eat it, but only a few bites and I'm done. My poor Gabe, loves the stuff and only eats it when we go out. No wonder he loves Olive Garden!
Put my little popsicle bag in the truck and went into to pick up a few things in the grocery store. While shopping I thought - am I going to use the popsicle maker? Gregory is going to buy me a machine I can make soft ice cream with fruit. Then there's the problem that the house in Florida is half the size of this one. Where am I going to put all this stuff?
I took the popsicle maker back and exchanged it for this
I've had my eye on it for awhile and I know it's not for everyone but it's a new "toy" and I needed to use up the credit on the card.
Does anyone have one? If you do, does it work well? I can bring it back in 60 days ( I think).
I'll give you an honest review on how well it works. It got good great reviews on amazon.
