  1. The Soup Topic (2013–)

    I'm still in England ...my Mom is still in CCU with pneumonia. I'm staying with my Aunt and Uncle and they LOVE homemade soup! I'm in heaven Canja, lemony chicken soup as per my Portuguese brother in law, clam chowder and homemade focaccia, Thai mussel soup, corn chowder with lardon and garlic toastie. mmmm mmmm good
  2. Gawd I HATE green peppers in my western. My Grumps (Grandfather owned a greasy spoon before I was born but he did NOT put green peppers in toasted westerns) Blasphemy I say! Edit to add a toasted western in my life consists of: 2 eggs beaten with diced white onion , diced raw bacon, a splash of water, a splooge of worstershire, salt and pepper. That is all, no green peppers were allowed
  3. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Wait a minute! You sit in the other seat when Ms. HungryChris is there? I see your breakfast posts and always put her to the right hand side...
  4. I ordered the mini....I see yogurt in my future When I checked out at Amazon.ca I received $5.00 off.
  5. The Man brought home a huge roast I just cut it up...so this was a little guy , I didn't weigh it : /
  6. Hi Ann! I sauteed the roast in the pot directly, no trivet when cooking...1/2 cup of liquid. I was pretty shocked how it turned out too. I used an eye of round the outside slice was a bit tough but the rest was nicely tender. Not sous vide tender ...but a good oven roast tender. I'll do it this way again for sure.
  7. Tried a new to me method for roast beast: Eye of round seasoned and sauteed on all sides in the Instant Pot. Add 1/2 cup of water, Manual high pressure for 4 minutes. Leave for one hour. Turned out a lovely medium rare. Made gravy in the Instant Pot for the Man. Spuds were 25 min manual high for whole potatoes. Green beans sauteed in butter and garlic.
  8. I"ll be going to Ireland next week so decided to make freezer meals for the Man while I'm gone. I've already done a few curries. Today I made Pasta and meatballs , inside out eggrolls minus the shrimp and next will be beef with veggies in black bean sauce
  9. HAHAHAHHA we bought that wine for the exact same reason!!!
  10. Me too..your blogs are delicious...I always picture you as a grown up Laura Ingals..finessing everything Ma taught you growing up....ummm yes I loved Little House on the Prairie too Thank you for these wonderful snippits/chapters into your life
  11. Saute chicken thighs in olive oil , add a cubed red onion, 10 whole cloves of garlic, salt and pepper, poultry seasoning, hot chili powder and sumac. Add 1/2 cup of water...and 1/2ed spuds. Manual high 20 minutes, 10 minute natural pressure release. The broth is delicious! I found a pack of 12 chicken thighs, bone in for five dollars. This will make two dinners and a few lunches. The Man eats a lot
  12. Rotissery Greek leg of lamb, stuffed with garlic and rosemary and rubbed with olive oil just like my sister showed me. Greek saladand Instant Pot Salt Potatoes courtesy of this old gal website:1/2 cup of fine saltMixed in pot with three cups of potatoesbaby spuds whole Manual High for two minutes Leave for 15 Add butter after and NO SALT
  13. 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:
  14. 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.
