    Dinner 2019

    Shake N Bake pork chops, cooked in the BSOA on air fry mode, served with green beans in butter and accompanied by a glass of "Caboose" - a Livermore Valley Zin from 2006. The Zin was from Livermore Valley Cellars, which, at the time, was one of the oldest wineries in the valley and now sadly gone. Caboose was one of the "Big Ass Zin" series. The first was called Big Ass Zin and the name snuck by the Alcoholic Beverage Control board the first year it was released, but they refused to approve it a second time. (Names that refer to potency are not allowed.) So in subsequent years they had fun with euphemisms like Caboose, Triple Cheek, Right Behind, Left Behind, Way Behind, Crack of Dawn, etc.

  11. Set of silicone sealing rings in different colors as food odor will remain in the rings for some time after washing. With color-coded alternates you can always cook (ie: red for spicy foods, clear for steaming/eggs, etc.). Also a steamer basket. Those are the must-haves. Nice to have is an egg holder if you plan to do eggs, but you can do without.

    Dinner 2018

    Chimichangas, made in the BSOA on airfry mode , stuffed with last night's leftovers of carnitas, rice and beans. Came out a tad overdone but still good.
  14. Amazon had the Instant Pot Ultra Mini (3 qt) on sale for $59.95 so I couldn't resist. It arrived early enough today to give it a test spin, so I made carnitas. It was around two pounds of pork and the Mini was the perfect size. I had read a few reviews that said it took too long to come up to pressure, but it was just 12 minutes. Not bad. Now that I am eating alone 3-5 nights a week, I also plan to use it when I just want to do a small amount of broccoli, a few eggs, a single artichoke, etc.
