Frozen Concoction Maker


My apologies for not posting earlier today.  I suffered an injury a week ago that has kept me off my feet which is rather annoying when it comes to cooking.  I have to tell you this is when a well stocked pantry comes in handy!  So with lack of cooking blog fodder I was browsing through my photos looking for a foodie picture to blog about for today.  Here it is :)

A couple of years ago we went to Key West much to the delight of my husband who is a huge Jimmy Buffet fan.  We've seen him in concert and eaten at his restaurant, Margaritaville.  My husband has been talking ever since of getting the Margaritaville blender.  There are a couple of models available.  Our kids very generously gifted us with the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker (Model DM0500 Series) for Christmas.  It came with one shot glass.  They also gifted us with the lemon/lime serving tray complete with cutting board and shot glass. 

This is one extremely heavy duty machine.  It is too tall when assembled to sit on the counter as it will not fit under the cabinets and it is too heavy to move around.  We have not tried the blender yet but you can bet the first drink out will be a margarita.  I can't wait for fresh local strawberries and other fruits to put this blender through the paces.  Sitting on the dock watching boats go by sipping on a lovely frozen drink...life doesn't get much better!
