Vitamix: Day 4 / Fail Sauce

It’s snowing!

Or it was when I started this post at 11:30am.  It’s completely melted now.  Sad.

Are you sick of me talking about my Vitamix yet? My cat isn’t:

I made a kickass smoothie for breakfast again, and decided to make a tomato sauce for dinner as my Vitamix recipe of the day.  I used the recipe in the Vitamix book and I followed it exactly I SWEAR, but this happened:

Foamy, pink slop.  I decided I might heat it up anyway and it would be at least edible, but no.

I hate hate HAAATE wasting ingredients.  It makes me feel so frustrated.  I mean, I’ve only really been cooking for about 7 months, so I should probably expect to screw up, right?  But still.  What a waste of a bunch of awesome foods.

I didn’t have enough time before yoga class to try something new, so I made a mini pizza for dinner.  Something amazing happened at yoga though – I was able to do the entire class without having to stop.  That’s something I haven’t been able to do for a long time, because of dizziness or weakness or my arms not wanting to hold up any of my body weight.  I don’t know if it’s because I just started taking pregnenolone to help my adrenal issues, or because of my Vitamix.  I’m going to go with Vitamix.  IT MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER!  Except pasta sauce.

After I got home, I had an Epsom salts bath, and now it’s 10:30 and I don’t feel like making anything else.  So that’s my recipe for today.

Fail Sauce
Serves: 0

1. Put a bunch of ingredients in the Vitamix.
