I just finished my classes for today. Love teaching! I nibbled on plain, cold baked potatoes between classes and it worked out great! I just put a bunch of yellow potatoes in my instant pot at night and they are ready in the morning. I like having a change from oatmeal sometimes and this is it. Very simple, too.

We have had a couple of great days! Thanksgiving dinner began on Wednesday. We had mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, summer squash, brussels sprouts, no-crust pumpkin pie, homemade cranberry sauce, brown gravy. So good! We have eaten this meal three times now. We also shared it with some friends: dropped it on their porch, knocked, and backed off. They said they loved it, too.

Happy Holidays!

I have moved again! We bought a house up north in the USA and are in the middle of moving. I think I am a bit crazy. Our contractor will be ripping out some down ceilings and replacing them downstairs while we live upstairs. Guess where the kitchen is? That's correct, downstairs. So we will be living out of our Instant Pot for a week. Lots of potatoes! I have a class starting, so I will be leaving.

Tonight the entire house smells like dinner: navy beans, onion, carrot, garlic and seasoned with smoked paprika, garlic, and bay leaves. Bean soup! Smells so good. :) My spouse went and bought a fresh loaf of bread. Can't wait!

Hi Buns! It was so good. I will probably fix another one tonight. My house is still a wreck. The contractor I hired ended up not knowing much. I had to fire him. He reminded me of Rumpelstiltskin, jumping up and down and threatening all of the things he would do, what he would charge me, etc. Fortunately we have most of it on video and in writing. The two men we hired for the plumbing and electric work were able to do it in 4 days; the original man was still humming and hawing after almost 8 weeks. So.

We are looking at having beans and rice tonight. Then potatoes and sweet potatoes and even more potatoes. I was wanting them when I woke up today and am already planning to eat them for the next several days. Hope everyone else is doing well!

Ack! Nothing like an incompetent contractor. My parents (dad...my mom wasn't enthusiastic about the idea) had one of my dad's drinking buddies do a big remodel on their house, and he flubbed everything. Like...EVERYTHING. Didn't follow the blueprints, piped hot water into a toilet, did not establish bedrock for a room addition so it started literally sinking after a few years. Left a plumbing pipe exposed in the basement and PROPPED on a door ajar so that when someone (I) closed the door, the pipe fell and bonked me on the head. Big pipe, too.

You're wise to get rid of Rumpelstiltskin, that's for sure. Glad you got video. Enjoy your potatoes!

I have to admit, I love eating! This way of life allows me to eat whatever I want. Today it is/has been lettuce, tomato, bell peppers, and red potatoes with bacos on top. Yum!
