  2. Thanks I thought he was a confirmed bachelor and I thought I'd never go down that path again...we're getting married in PEI ...how could I say no when this is on the menu....I had these at the shellfish festival last week:
  3. Back home from a short trip to PEI where I unexpectedly got engaged! The man wasn't even there Influenced by Shelby's porcupine meatballs I did a play on them: Instant Pot Porcupine Teriyaki meatballs with garlic green beans. Meatballs: 1 lb of ground beef mixed with 3/4 cup of white rice salt and pepper Garlic powder Worsteshire Form into balls Layer half into IP Add Teriyaki sauce about 3/4 of a cup and 1/3 cup of water add rest of meatballs on top Liquid should not cover top row so the rice sticks out Manual high pressure 15 minutes and 10 natural pressure release Green beans were done on saute but I think 0 pressure and quick release would be fine.
  4. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Spicy gazpacho ...very spicy...very good! And filling!
  5. Late candlelight dinner on the deck...grilled steak...I got the bone! Instant pot potato salad with boiled eggs and dill pickle heavy dressing and taber corn in the Instant pot, full on husk for five minutes:
  6. Meatballs with mushroom onion gravy, mashed potatoes and corn. One pot had mushroom, onions and garlic sauteed while I made the meatballs. Brown balls and add a cup of beef stock...manual high pressure for 7 minute with 10 minutes of natural pressure release. Pot two had cubed spuds with skin, 1/4 chopped onion , chunk of butter and add milk or cream and lots of salt. Put some husked corn on top and manual high pressure for 5 minutes with quick release. Mash spuds and adjust seasoning. It looks curdled but its fine when you mash her up. It looks like the dogs dinner...but a fine dogs dinner
  7. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Leftover veggies for lunch...I can't get enough of those garlicky green beans!
  8. Thanks Anna! To be honest I'm a bit of a messy cook...as in a tornado hit the kitchen when I'm free styling without the Instant pot! I find I use way less dishes, pots, pans and utensils when I only utilize my Instant Pot's. (Yes I said pot'S , I have two now ) PS I'm a full on carnivore but to be honest the best part of this meal was the garlicky green beans...they still had just enough bite to them.
  9. Tonite was ribs, corn, spuds and garlicky green beans:1/2 cup of water whole beans on the steamer rack salt and 0minutes manual high pressure with a quick release. I put them in ice water to shock them and finish making dinner. Then I used the Instant pot on saute added butter and olive oil garlic and salt then tossed the beans in until warmed through DELISH!Ribs and Spuds: Season and coil in pot, add whole spuds and 1/2 can of beer Manual high pressure for 25 minutes with 10 minute natural pressure release, brush with your favourite bbq sauce and grill for a bit on each side.Corn in four minutes easy peasy
  10. Just flew to Toronto from Calgary via Edmonton...Air Canada. The flight from Calgary to Edmonton is about 45 minutes so I was surprised they offered refreshments! Water, pop or juice. Coming home was Toronto via Montreal to Calgary. You can only buy food , no meals are supplied. On the way we took our own sandwiches and chips. On the way back we ate at the airport. I bought a kitkat and some wine . Oh and complimentary mini pretzles:
  11. Charcut and Charbar

    My most favourite item from Charcut is POUTINE!!! A glass or two of red wine and a poutine and I'm very happy! Oh the oysters are pretty good too
  12. Charcut and Charbar

    We need to get this Western Canada forum going Today we had brunch at Charbar here in Calgary. An egg's benedict riff on a pizza...OMG so good! I have the egg bennies (sous vide eggies) with deep fried yucca fries and we shared a side of thick bacon! My Mom had thick toast with avocado butter and easy over eggs. And what is brunch without a Caesar or two. OH the kitchen sent out their french toast bites with dulce de leche: Psssst I am affiliated to these two hot restaurants in Calgary BUT even if I wasn't I'd tell you to go there!
