The New Precious Has Arrived – Concoction Anyone?

I’ve been eyeing these for awhile but it was the Amazon review that said “It’s not an appliance, it’s a lifestyle’” that pushed me over the edge to click the BUY button.

For the record Margaritaville Concoction Maker DM1000 but we just call it The Precious. Purchased from Amazon for $240.00 Something

Poor William and Sonoma – their summer catalogue is what planted the seed for this but alas their price for what is very close to the same product took them out the running. We did however try your Slow Cooked Chicken and Herbed Biscuit recipe while we waited for The Precious to arrive and it was wonderful. Maybe next time.

So back to the story at hand. The Precious has brought with it much joy. And then much pain. I’m talking college sized hangovers, back in the day hangovers. Ughh. But it only took one night to determine that we were pouring way way too much booze in. We are now pouring in moderation, and there is joy again.

Note: The kids LOVE it to. They are having a blast making smoothies, kid daiquiris, and the big surprise – shave ice -  in it. Yes you can just have it shave a pitcher of ice and then scope that out into bowls for Hawaiian Shave ice. So it’s been a treat for the whole family.

At this rate it will more than pay for itself in fun and entertainment as the summer progresses.
