It Feels Like Christmas!

Guess what showed up on my door step this week?

Yes way. 

Holy mackerel, do I feel giddy!  I have been wanting one of these for a long, long time, but it never really fit into the budget.  Er, that is to say, it didn’t fit into the budget at all.

I’m already infatuated.  This morning, I whipped up a frappuccino out of vanilla Teeccino, raw goats’ milk, a touch of stevia, and some ice.  Oh, yum!  You would not believe how fluffy and pillowy it was after less than 20 seconds of processing.  Later, I whirled a green smoothie for lunch out of the goat milk yogurt I made last Saturday, a ripe pear, a few frozen strawberries, some romaine lettuce leaves, coconut oil, coconut fiber, and stevia.  It tasted pretty decent, and it kept me full for a long time.

Dear ones (you know who you are), thank you so very much for a wonderful birthday gift!  I love it.  🙂
