What do you bring on a trip?
Last week, I was missing my hand grater although I landed in a kitchen much more well equipped than mine and ended up discovering some cool stuff!
The Braun little food processor (MR430HC-Multiquick-Blender-Chopper) attaches to a handheld “blender”, it does all kinds of stuff and doesn’t take up all kinds of space. Also I found there were small pates we were making that really didn’t do as well in their LeEquip Food Processor. Apparently the Braun is new and improved according to an Amazon comment. It has an even stronger motor and deeper bowl and more flexibility. We were using their older model which they had for years and I was impressed with how finely it chopped the raddichio and pine nut mix into a delicious dish! WOW. Loved it so much I ordered one on amazon for about 27$.
They also had a mini electric grater, Presto Salad Shooter, which was loud and costs 30+, although not as loud as a food processor and it was quick…
Also I discovered the beauty of having large bowls with lids; make it, put the lid on and toss it into the fridge. And glass is so pleasing…although a little heavier…you can see what is in there and not eat plastic; they also live longer and are better for the environment than plastic. Pyrex makes great glass tupperware and mixing bowls all with lids. Cheaper than I thought!
Lastly I discovered the beauty of having four glass measuring cups in play at once.
