Fancy Smancy Food Processor


Took a tote bag of veggies to daughters for her to chop in her food processor as she insisted. Celery and 2 color peppers to make her macaroni salad. I really wasnít fond how the peppers came out. Weird too big pieces. She tried a different blade and they were a bit mushy. Macaroni salad at the deli has neat little squares of peppers. I wonder how they do that. Surely not by hand? I know people who would cut things perfectly by hand. I think next time Iíll cut those things by hand as Iíve always done. (Not perfect but better than FP)

Main reason for going over was a big head of cabbage. Man, that food processor is the only way to go! She also chopped the carrots and onions for the cole slaw and they came out perfectly.

What are things other people use their food processor for?

I don't know this for sure, but, I bet the deli uses pre-packaged squares.

There is probably some computerized dicer, with a screen that lets only the proper sized bits through, to be bagged.

Gravel crusher miniaturized to accommodate foodstuff.

Re: Fancy Smancy Food Processor


The wife said she uses her processor for slaw type veggies but other than that mostly for shredding roast for BBQ.
SeniorSitizen gets the arduous boring task of slicing and dicing peppers. Daughter likes those sliced and of course wife must be different with more labor to dice. But it's all worth it for daughter's chinese dishes and the wife's homemade pizza and all those other goodies she uses peppers in. These pics were from a good pepper year. 2019 was a disaster for peppers.

Re: Fancy Smancy Food Processor


I make all my bread and pizza dough in my (kitchen aid) food processor.
It takes 45 to 60 seconds to up a perfect batch of bread or pizza dough.


When you remove it to the counter, kneed it for 30 to 45 seconds.
It the best way ever to make dough.

I use my mini chop for chopping veggies and nuts and grading cheese.

Re: Fancy Smancy Food Processor


She seens to have a problem with her herbs disappearing.

She plans to cut some of my bamboo to stick in the pots making a fence around the herbs. I’m doubtful. This bunny has all the best fresh greens and alfalfa, in his bowl so why do this?

Because he can? Like climbing Mount Everest for humans.


He can look out at where he wants to be and still have the adventure of eating off a "bush". Could she make him an outdoor cage? He so wants to be outside. . .

By the way, did he get fixed?

Re: Fancy Smancy Food Processor


He had a thorough checkup. Heís very young which was good to know. Itís difficult to determine sex in young bunnies but vet thinks heís a boy. They have to wait till later to neuter him. Probably August.

We learned when they jump and twist in the air theyíre very happy. Its called blink.

He was running around and suddenly froze. Neighbors cat had meandered past the porch. Bunny couldnít see him but may have smelled him.

PS
Nik, thanks for the list. Iíll send it to her.
She has a harness to walk him in the yard but she had to run to keep up. we have so many hawks here. Her grass is thick so it would be easy for him to burrow out. But she did research outdoor pens. his new favorite place to sit in on top of the patio table.

That would allow the cat to come in also.

There's no cats or Bunny would have already been dead.

Re: Fancy Smancy Food Processor


Get him a bunny playmate! ( No, not that kind, Guys.)

@SeniorSitizen - You never know with animals. When I lived in Hawaii, I came home one night to find the cats had knocked over the cockatiel cage & it opened.


The two cockatiels were standing in the moonlight on the floor, shoulder to shoulder at the sliding glass door, looking out at the ocean. Absolute truth.



I had several cats.


Your daughter could put chicken wire on the bottom of the outdoor cage, securely. Or thicker wire, if needed.

Nik, you should have gotten a picture of that. I’d love a cat but her allergies are too bad.
