Ok, so the newbies are enamoured with their new Instant Pots.  Now we need good food to cook in the IP. Do you purchase food in bulk? Do you just shop for that day's meals? Weekly shopper?

As luck would have it, I was just invited to be part of the Zaycon Fresh Premiere Influencer program. There is a potential to earn when referring new customers. Share the deals with friends, family and neighbors. A truck will deliver to your area.

My Magic Pot of Yum!



So tonight I was just going to research some more ideas and recipes for my Magic Pot. Then a Snow Day was called for Tuesday.




















Since I don't have to get up early tomorrow, and I was hungry, and I was cold - I decided I needed some pasta.


However, I wanted to try out some Hard Boiled Eggs first - so I made 6 of those. They turned out so pretty. Even Sammy ate one!



Then I started the pasta. I put the IP on saute, added 2 lbs of ground beef and let it cook. I added a little bit of water so it didn't stick to the bottom of my pan. Then I added a box of bowtie pasta. I then broke up a little bit of spaghetti and tossed that in too. One jar of spaghetti sauce got dumped on top along with some spices. I added 2 jars of water as well. I set it to cook for 7 minutes.

On the first try, the pot didn't seal all the way. I realized that the sealing ring on the inside of the lid was still too warm. I rinsed it off and put the entire lid in the fridge for a few minutes. Then I started the pot back up. Set it for only 4 minutes this time. It just finished -

Note the paper bowl and plastic fork - I hate doing dishes. I used to hate cooking.
I can't wait until the boys are old enough to not break dishes while doing chores...

I hope no one gets tired of reading about my Instant Pot adventures because I am having a great time! I haven't smiled like this in a long time - especially from cooking.
