Dinner Tonight

You guessed it . . another dinner from the pressure cooker.

Teriyaki Wings

It’s Teriyaka Chicken Wings, leftover mac and cheese and baked sweet potato. The wings were so good.

Everything about the pressure cooker is good but I really love how well it browns. These are the wings after browning but before pressure cooking for 7 minute.

One pack of wings made enough for two meals. Oh, how I love leftovers! 

Design Wall – December 15, 2014

There was a little bit of sewing this week . . not enough. I now have 17 blocks done but I forgot to take a picture and I have a dentist appointment first thing this morning so by the time I get myself ready, get the critters all taken care of .. there’s not going to be a spare minute so I’ll just share a picture from an old post!

More Pressure Cooker Meals

Yesterday I never got around to sharing what I had cooked in the pressure cooker and I knew you were all dying to know!  :)  Not really . . I get annoyed sometimes with people who post everything they cook and then I do the same thing.

Last night, I fixed Sweet & Sour Country Style Ribs and they were so delicious!

Sweet & Sour Country Style Ribs

We had leftover rice and leftover black beans so I combined them, added a little cilantro, cumin and chicken broth, heated it all up and that was our side, along with cole slaw.

Tonight, I heated the leftover ribs and made mac & cheese.

Mac & Cheese

Mac & Cheese

It was so yummy! The macaroni was cooked perfectly, just a bit al dente once the pressure was off but by the time the milk heated up and the cheese melted, it was just right. Before seeing this recipe, I would have figured macaroni would have come out of there as one big glob of mush but not so! It cooked for 5 minutes under pressure so all total, it probably took 10 minutes to make it with no heat in the kitchen, the oven oven was not used and I have one non-stick container to clean!

I don’t think I have to tell you how much we love our Cuisinart pressure cooker!  Vince said today . . tell me again why you never got this before now!
