Happy Thursday before Thanksgiving, everyone! I can not tell you how excited I am to host this giveaway for you today. On Monday, we put up our Christmas tree and stockings because, as you are reading this, we are on the road and won't be home again until two days after Thanksgiving. This way, we can walk into our house and have our Christmas decorations already up and ready to be in full swing for the holidays!
Waking up to our Christmas tree lights for the last three days has really put me in the mood for Christmas shopping! But, since I have no time or even money (hello, saving up for house down payment!) to do that right now, this giveaway is the next best thing. Consider this my Christmas present to you. 🙂 My friends at Blendtec are sponsoring one very lucky Pennies reader to win a factory restored Total Blender Classic Wildside plus a brand new Twister Jar to go along with it! This is over a $500 value, people! Score! 🙂
This blender is seriously the real deal. It replaces many of your other kitchen appliances and does it all for you. It can make dips, ice cream, nut butters, smoothies, soups, etc. And, it all blends so evenly with an operating brain of its own, you don't even understand how you got that perfect consistency! I know I would get pretty frustrated with my old blender, having to always stop it, scrape down the sides, shake it and whatever else in order to get it to blend just right. No longer do I need to do this now that I have a Blendtec!
And, you better believe I'll be putting this to full time use once this new baby comes along and starts eating baby food. 🙂
Here are a few other recipes you can make in Blendtec blenders:
Green Monster Smoothie
Banana Ice Cream
