One of the conceits of this blog is that I assume that the simple things I "discover" and am fascinated by are also interesting and fascinating to you. Or not. The other conceit is that anyone reads my blog.

In any case, L and I make a soup called Curried Cauliflower soup. The recipe is basically roasted cauliflower, onions, chicken stock, water, salt, pepper, and curry. It is pretty easy. However, it has always been a very messy soup, since the roasted cauliflower and onions are supposed to be liquefied. This gives the soup the consistency of being Cream of Cauliflower, but involved no cream. Just liquefied vegetables. To liquefy the cauliflower and onions we would put batches into the blender and liquefy. This meant that there was drippage going into the blender, coming out of the blender, and use of unnecessary containers to hold the liquefied soup. It always destroyed the kitchen. For years L and I discussed the need to buy an immersion blender. That would make this all easy, we thought.

Well, last weekend I bought an immersion blender. And last night we used the immersion blender to make the soup. And it took all of four minutes to liquefy the soup, the kitchen stayed neat, and clean up took about ten minutes. And it was all because after taking about getting an immersion blender for five years, we finally spent $49.99 on one.
