We are nuts about our Yonanas machine.
Right before Mother's Day we were all at Costco, prowling for samples,.. ugh, shopping for groceries. We talked our mom into letting us buy that for her for Mother's Day. As soon as we got home, we immediately put it together and rummaged through all the fruit in the house. It came with a recipe book, that we have used since ten, but that first day, we experimented. We use it so much, we leave it out on the counter.
When we first bought it, we got a CASE of bananas from our local Bountiful Baskets. We stayed up LATE peeling bananas, chopping apples, and peeling oranges. We put all of the fruit in individual bags so that went the mood strikes, the ingredients are ready. Different types of fruit are mixed together in the bags, some according to the recipe book and some "Medley made" recipes.
After watching the first episode of Nickelodean iCarly, where the main character decides to do a web show, my kids decided that they would like to do a "show". Choosing to share our experiences with others, sounded like a really fun idea.
