New Kitchen Gadget!

I've made several soups stews, and chilis that call for blending all
or part of the ingredients after simmering and before serving.

I would just ladle out the amount needed, dump it in the blender,
puree away, and then pour it back in the pot.  This actually works
just fine but today I decided I *needed* an immersion blender
for the new garlic soup I'm serving at dinner tonight.  

I'll post the recipe tomorrow if it's as amazing as I
think it's going to be.

If you're unfamiliar with this gadget, an immersion blender is just
what it sounds like - it's a hand-held blender you immerse in
whatever you're wanting to blend.  This saves the whole step of
transferring back and forth from the blender.

There are fancier and more expensive immersion blenders out
there but I went with this one.
The price was right: $20 at Wal-Mart.
Plus, I've read alot of good reviews online.
