    Note – that first comment was meant as a joke … and in those parenthesis, before that first, lonely comma, there was supposed to be a -grin- in angle brackets … but it looks like it got filtered out … sigh …

    Eric: No worries. I’m not easily offended by tomato gaffes. As it happens, the recipe called for puree and all I had was chopped tomatoes. That always happens.

    Immersion blenders are GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!! They are wonderful for so many things. They may even be the best thing since sliced bread :)~
    They also make a special immersion blender for baby bottles to mix formula – FABULOUS!!!!!!!!
