2 Much 2 Process 06/03

lunch:
- tuna sandwich
- creamy artichoke soup
A Giada recipe. Artichokes, leeks, and potato cooked til tender, then pureed in chicken stock and a little cream cheese with an immersion hand blender (pretty awesome tool, but took longer than expected). I've confirmed I don't really like the flavor of artichokes. Fun to make, though.

Sue & Mike's wedding shower:

She-H, please list the electronic kitchen appliances which you consider "essential" for an amateur's kitchen. Do I need a Cuisinart?

Yes, you absolutely need a food processor. It opens so many doors! I prefer KitchenAid brand. I've read they have better customer service and their extra blades come packed in a convenient plastic box (I don't think Cuisinart's do). Mine also came with a citrus juicing attachment. Even a $50 Cuisinart mini-prep food processor would be helpful if you don't want to go for the real thing. A regular blender. A microwave. And if you really want to go hard core, one or the other of an electronic hand mixer and an artisan stand mixer. I'm sure a hand mixer would be sufficient.
