Have you heard about Instant Pot?? A few blogs I follow had talked about using it....and the successes they were having! I hummed and hawed and then weakened and purchased mine from Amazon....that was several months ago and I had never used it! It's a pressure cooker (and slow cooker) and it kind of freaked me out! LOL On my birthday, when Sue and Deb were here visiting, we chatted about it and I decided that was it....I was going to use it the next day (it was not inexpensive!)! Well, first I made a whole chicken....I took this pic while the chicken was cooking....for 25 minutes! A whole chicken was done in 25 minutes...and it was good! I needed some work on seasoning though. Next up was a beef roast. 30 minutes......(I think or 35) and done! And tender! So last night I made "spaghetti" I read on the FB group about it and a lot of people said they replaced spaghetti noodles for other noodles. I happened to have shell noodles.....so frozen meatballs, uncooked pasta, spaghetti sauce, water, spices and 6 minutes of cooking (after it pressured up) and bam! Supper.....we also had garlic bread. Daughter2 and I had some leftovers for supper....baked with cheese on top....yummo! A very handy gadget for sure!
(love Bread and Butter pickles! haha)
I've even spent some time in my sewing room. This super simple wallhanging was stitched...it just needed quilting so I completed that yesterday. Now to hand stitch the binding which I hope to start tonight.
The surgeons office called and I have an appointment for a consultation on October 4th. I am hoping surgery is shortly thereafter. This uninvited "breast guest" has over stayed it's welcome! Time for it to vacate the premises!! :o)
Our little granddaughter started crawling today so we will have to watch out!!!!!!!! I will have to do some baby proofing and safety gates will have to go up on the stairs. Fun times!!! :oP
Soon it will be Thanksgiving weekend. All the kids, grandkids and even my dad will be here. I can't wait! I love this time of year.....I wish it would last longer.........
Yep I'm a lover of all things pumpkin......Daughter2 grabbed these for me today....even pumpkin agave! I admit to being a lover of Starbucks' pumpkin spice lattes too!
Another bad pic of my fall mantle. I really do love fall. <3 Not a fan of the white stuff so it can hold off indefinitely!
