I don't have a name for her yet, but this chic and I are going to be tight.
I can already tell.
She arrived yesterday and she works hard and the red looks good on her.
I love to cook, but I had never heard of this type of blender before.
We're now working with specialists at St. Joseph's Hospital in New Jersey.
Owen (and his momma) will be spending five weeks there in August, but in the meantime they're watching him eat via video and giving us recommendations.
They specialize in kids like Owen.
(You know, awesome kids that just happen to have disorders that make eating unpleasant.)
Because of his many allergies, I am now making a lot of his food, and they said I needed an immersion blender. One from vitamix that costs close to $500.
I did my own research and got this one for $60.
Obviously - I got the red.
(You do know I'm obsessed with red appliances, right?)
We got acquainted yesterday and I love her.
She took bananas, pumpkin, and eggs, and made this:
Perfectly smooth! No lumps!
And with much persuasion and distraction this morning, he ate five bites of it.
5 bites of something with egg in it.
That's a new food and one he's not allergic to!
That's some good protein, yo.
She (name suggestions are welcome for my new companion) also made avacado and chicken with almond milk, and chicken noodle soup with extra chicken and egg in it.
You go, girl.
Now all we need is this Lil' Man to eat like he's never eaten before.
Because dude needs to get out of the third percentile.
Here's to my new companion and hitting the fourth percentile.
I think together, she and I can get it done.
