How d'ya do Captain Howdy?

It turns out that I didn't need an exorcism afterall.

Isn't it a hoot that demonic possession and food poisoning display the exact same symptoms? I awoke at 3 A.M. yesterday convinced that it would be a spectacular idea to call a priest. Obnoxious substances were jetting forth out of every one of my orifices all at the same time.

This isn't the work of Satan. I can either blame bad ranch dressing or a gone over can of sweetened condensed milk. Those are the two things I ate which my family did not. My family still looks and smells wholesome to a point.

I feel better this morning.


As much as I wanted to, I didn't slurp down the whole can of sweetened condensed milk all at once. What I did do is make up a batch of iced coffee using this recipe:

10-12 cups of freshly brewed coffee
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
6 or 12 good squirts of hershey syrup

(Hershey squirts...yeah, funny.)

I then used May's Bestest Housewifely Doodad to thoroughly mix these ingredients and add a delightful amount of froth.

The Hand Blender!

Despite the many sexual innuendos I could make about the name and shape of this handy little appliance, I think I've already pushed my limit with all the hershey squirt talk. The shape is a key part of it's function. You need to be able to place the blades down into a glass or bowl.

I like these doodads because they work like blenders without having to wash all the blender bits. These are easy to clean and just as easy to jam into the cabinet containing all the rest of the appliances.

Hand Blenders come in several brands, ergonomic shapes, colors, wattages and price ranges. I bought mine for around 8 bucks on impulse. I was craving a malt.

Don't get your fingers or any cords near the blades whilst the doodad is plugged in, alrighty? If you do it's absolutely not my fault...nor is it my fault if you try out my recipe and you too end up thinking you need an exorcism.

Oh yeah, you should refrigerate the recipe when you are done frothing it. That's important when it comes to iced coffee.

Thank you hand blender, I like you, I really like you.


  1. I call it my Whip Stick.

    The sexual innuendos abound.

  2. I may try that as a summer alternative to my daily mocha. Does it last awhile in the fridge?

    I have one of those blenders that we had bought to use in the RV but never got around to it. Pat didn't think it looked useful so we were going to put it into our yard sale. Maybe now I will have a use for it although couldn't you just do the same thing with a big regular blender?

  3. I think you were just having a dream involving Bea Arthur,,,,again.


  4. ok that only took 6 tries to post,,,is your blog too full or am i doing something wrong?


  5. I have no idea Erf!

    Those Bea Arthur dreams are all the better when you are in them, preferably dressed in a tiger costume and serving cheeseburgers...

  6. so what else is long and hard, comes in all shapes and sizes...when used correctly renders a frothy delight....I wonder........oh a toothbrush, right.
