Health Update/ Thrifty Food Processor

Good Evening Bloggers!!
I feel so blessed. I got really good news about the test results of the colonoscopy!
The doctor says I am cancer free! I do not have to have another test for two years. It had been once a year!! I am so thankful for all the prayers that went out for me.

I wanted to share with you what a great thrifty buy my husband and I got on a brand new Kenmore Elite food processor. We bought the one on display. The original price was 175.00 and some change. When the cashier rang it up it was only 122.00 and some change because it was a display model. We had received a 70.00 gift card from Sears when we bought our new refrigerator about a month ago. So we applied that to the cost. Another big surprise the cashier told us we were now eligible for a 20.00 gift card. With all the discounts the Food processor cost only 30.00. Now I cannot express how excited I am about this. I know , I know its only a food processor. But little things excite me, especially when we get a great bargain!! So here are the photos of this bad boy.

This food processor is really huge and very heavy. I am so happy about having this , it will really help me at holiday times.

I thought I would give you up close photo of the stainless steel part of the appliance.

I love that it came with a storage container to store the blades. My last food processor I spent half my time chasing down where I put the blades. This will keep all the parts organized.


  1. Susan I am so happy for you!!! Cancer free and no colonoscopy for 2 years!! Love your food processor and what a great deal! Love those gift cards and how we can stretch our dollars! Again congrats and Blessings to you!

  2. Susan - I am glad that you are cancer free. Leave your worries to the Lord. Now about that food processor - The deal is ALWAYS the best part. ALWAYS!!!!! I go to the flea market tomorrow for the first time in a long time and I am excited beyond measure. I simply must get a camera and one of the kids to show me how to post pictures cuz I get some amazing deals myself. Blessings

  3. So glad to hear you are cancer free! I know that put you on top of the world!
    Love your food processor... you got an amazing deal.
    Try to stay cool this week-end. We left our condo at MB this morning to come back home in the upstate and it was already Hot!
    Have a great week-end, Annette

  4. Thank you, Susan, for sending the blessing of safety my way. I am sitting here right now, expecting to get hit any minute. Our job of preparing properties was huge, with all the flowers, chairs, etc. I am so happy that everything worked out for you.

    I also hope you enjoy the food processor...looks like a real nice one for a real deal. I use mine all the time! Enjoy creating! Blessings to you, Karen

  5. So happy about the good news Susan!!! Great deals on your new goodies!

  6. That is a wonderful processor and storage is always in parts in the cupboard. Glad your test was good news also!

  7. Oh Susan, that is wonderful news! I am so happy to hear your test results were good!

    What a great deal on the food processor!

  8. Rejoicing with you about your great report!

    And happy that you got such a great deal on the food processor too! :)

  9. Wonderful news on your test!!! :D
    You did good on the food processor. I don't have one, but would not use it enough to justify buying one.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend - You have good reason to celebrate!

  10. I could email you back with the comment that you left on my blog because it stated, 'non reply back' off I headed over here with the message I wrote back to you,,lol. Blessings.

    Hey sweet sis..just taking a break from cleaning, transplanting geraniums (I've had these plants for two years now and bring them inside for the Fall and winter months), laundry, and everything else in between.

    Thank you so much for your kind words over me. I just finished writing a devotional this morning. God IS good all the time. Your right about the 'waiting' part. God gave me Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him when this journey of unemployment started almost two years ago...God IS good!! Be still and know that I am God...that too tells us to wait, to hope, to trust....resting in Him.

    Love ya girl!!

    Susan, tell me what you use it for mainly ...we have one of those "blenders on steroids"..that we juice and make slushies with...but do not know what a food used for. ( ** I am NOT a cook).
