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 even used a little less water in the recipe than I do in the crock pot. 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?)
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.

I've been meal planning 3-4 days at atime. It's less overwhelming.

Tonight is Greek burgers and salad with cookies & ice cream for dessert. My firstborn is 18 today. Her young man is taking her on their first official date and then joining us for dinner.
