“Update from the Swamp”

 

To fully understand this post, you must read “Green Juice,” (my morning post.)

For the benefit of those who already have, I will proceed…..

 

I decided to start small on my juicing adventure……

A couple of apples, perhaps a celery stalk, a carrot……

Nothing exotic like kale or spinach….

I need to build up to my Kermit endurance……

Step one involved the trek to the basement to unearth the juicing machine…….

It’s an annual trek……

I retrieve the juicer……juice one glass……it sits on my counter for a couple of months……..

Then, one day, it goes home back to the basement shelves….

 

I unearthed the dusty machine……not without disrupting at least ten other dusty purchases that have been its comrade for the past decade…..

 

I washed each part……..but alas, the pulp container was missing…..

Perhaps it grew tired of languishing days in the basement and ventured off on its own journey…….

Anyway…….I got a suitable, (at least in my mind, replacement)…….

Washed, cut my apples and celery, peeled my carrot……

And began…….

 

There is a reason the pulp container fits “just so” next to the juicer……

Do you wish to know that reason……..

So pulp does not go flying everywhere and stick to all your other counter appliances……..

So, after washing down the appliances, which probably soaked in more nutrition than I will…..

and cleaning off the major amount of vegetable pulp still left in the machine, (and not my body)…….

 

I now for the eleventh year in a row…….understand why I don’t juice……….

 

My 4 oz. of juice is waiting……..I will try to enjoy every precious drop.

 

Namaste……….

    The image of the pulp flying all over is hysterical! Your expression had to be priceless…

    I`m going to use my old blender. Will let you know of any “incidents” 🙂
