Did you know you can make your own rice flour with a Blendtec Blender?  I just found this out!

Yesterday Costco got me!  You know what I am talking about.  Your intentions are good, and your guard is high. All your going for is your Costco staples, and before you walk in you give yourself a pep talk to avoid temptation island.  Temptation island is the area in the middle that has all your wants, but they are not yet needs.

Your confidence is high, because you intend to walk in like a horse with blinders on.

Then you hear the lady over the microphone, talking about her yummy samples made with her Blendtec. Well one sample doesn’t hurt. After all, I don’t need some fancy blender just to make smoothies!

Then my husband wanted to see how it could crush ice, because we occasionally like to have a margarita.

He gives me the look, but I was still not sold. Then she mentioned how you can make your own rice flour? I said really?  And then she shows me. You can do the same with oats, wheat, almonds, and more!

She’s good, really good

We walked out with a Blendtec, and just like that I came home and made my very own Brown Rice Flour!

1 Cup Rice, powered it up to 10 and it’s done!

The current price at Costco is $299 after $30 instant savings.  It also comes with an extra 1 year warranty. The links above lead to Amazon.

I am super excited about this purchase – and one that I know will save me tons of money in the future –  for example the Bob’s Red Mill Rice Flour Brown, 24-Ounce (Pack of 4) is currently on sale for $13.04 – which typically is a great price for rice flour.  But I can make 160oz for $14.79 using the Bombay Basmati Brown Rice, 10-pounds Sack

I am prepared to take my homemaking skills to a whole new level! Get ready for some awesome recipes!
