Instant Pot Adventures…

I made sous  vides egg bites like they sell at that pricey coffee chain (you know who I mean) where they cost $5 for two!  These are spinach and roasted red pepper, but you really can add any flavors you want.

They are super delicious and easy to make in an Instant Pot.  Hubby and my son loved them.  Here’s a link to the recipe I used but it’s basically four eggs, cottage or ricotta cheese, another shredded cheese, and veggies if you want.  I used cottage cheese and mild cheddar and blended with an immersion blender to make the eggs and cheese smooth.

The trick is covering the silicon mold (I got it from Amazon for $8) with foil, putting a cup of water in the bottom, setting the mold on the metal tribute that comes with the Instant Pot and STEAMING it for ten minutes.  Yes, there is a steam button you use.

They come out like little egg soufflés and release from the mold easily.  They can be refrigerated or frozen and reheated for a quick breakfast or snack.  So, so good!

Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…

Happy October…

Monday Musings about Cruising…

I’m back from Canada, eh, and here’s just a quick overview of why I like cruising!

  1. Spent more than a week with hubby, my sis and brother in law living next door to each other  (we live several states apart)
  2. Wonderful food choices made it easy to eat well and indulge just a little.  And no planning, cooking or clean up…
  3. Only had to take Dramamine for a few days this time…
  4. Walked literally miles everyday (not to mention the stairs)
  5. Great entertainment all in one place.  A show every night — great music, magic, acrobats and comedy, plus musicians in the common atrium areas…
  6. An incredibly small, efficient storage system for clothes and personal effects in your stateroom…
  7. A free upgrade to a stateroom on a higher floor with an obstructed ocean view (that means a lifeboat is partially in front of your window) but, hey, some people pay for that view!
  8. A special drink of the day and wine with dinner (not included in the price, but still)…
  9. Visiting six cities without packing up and changing hotels every few days…
  10. A towel animal on your bed each night — that’s a bulldog!
