There were only three of us home for dinner tonight, so I was very decadent and did steak! Which I don't think we've had since we were first married :lol I did it with a pepper sauce (from a packet) sweet potato fries, green beans and sugar snap peas and it was delicious :yum

Curry again with lots of veggies

Or any Chinese dish where the meat is mainly a garnish for the vegetables and rice

Ooh, good idea. I'm a little thin on veggies, but bet I could do fried rice with scrambled eggs added too.

I dropped my crock pot a couple of weeks ago, shattering the ceramic pot and haven't gotten a replacement. SO.... I'm making crock pot lemon-herb chicken in my Instant Pot. - 35 minutes on high pressure. Here's hoping it works!

It should. I switched all of my crockpot recipes over to pruser cooker 8 years ago when I got my stove top one.

Thanks! Do you have any guidelines for converting recipes? I went by the times for a couple of other IP recipes to figure out how long to cook the chicken last night.

It turned out okay. I didn't measure any of the spices which is why (I think) it was a little under-seasoned, but it was also soupier than the crock pot version. I even used a little less water in the recipe than I do in the crock pot. :think But bone-in chicken done in under and hour? Pretty cool. (I set it for 35 minutes at pressure, but with going up and coming down I think it took about 55. That's about average, isn't it?)

Slow cooker whole chicken with potatoes, carrots, celery and onion; green beans, spinach strawberry salad, and I might make some gravy from the chicken broth.

I think I started with halving the liquid when I was converting them. I think I eventually reduced the liquid even more. I looked at prusher cooker recipes for the time generally.

Actually I think I might have found something that talked about converting them let me go see if I can find it.

Okay, finally trying to get back into menu planning with the craziness of summer. Celebrated DS's first day of high school last night with surf and turf (steak, salmon & shrimp) with prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

Tonight is copycat Cheesecake factory avocado egg rolls and an Asian salad.
