I thought I would pop in and show my face again LOL. This is about how I feel right now:
I just finished the last of my shows for the season. Now it’s just online orders to fill for the next couple of weeks. Business has been really busy and I kept thinking it would slow down, but even today it was quite busy. Not that busy is a bad thing, but the above meme about sums it up 😀
Biking season is pretty much done. I did bundle up for a few rides:
I still have not brought the bike inside yet. Maybe I can squeak in a bit more riding in December. It’s possible, right?
We put up our tree Thanksgiving weekend.
I love this tree so much. It’s very real looking.
I did succumb to a Black Friday deal:
That’s my Amazon link (full disclosure). I won a $50 gift certificate to Amazon, plus I had a promotional credit in my account. I ended up not paying much out of my pocket for the Instant Pot. Yippee!
They came out yummy. I think it took maybe 20 minutes from start to finish, most of which was just the cook, so I didn’t have to do anything but have coffee while it cooked.
I really like my pressure cooker, but I haven’t used it much recently and working a pressure cooker on an electric stove is a real PITA. The IP made it very easy.
We also tried doing a pot-in-pot recipe cooking the main and side at the same time. We did a chickpea curry with rice. The sauce had to be thickened a little after cooking, but other than that, the rice turned out perfect!
John wants to make baked beans or (and) a cheesecake. I downloaded a couple free recipe books for the Instant Pot. Something like 700 recipes all together. That’s waaaay too many LOL. It will be nice to incorporate this machine into cooking Christmas Eve dinner this year.
That’s life in a nutshell right now. Hope people are still reading!
