I’ve been knocked flat by a terrible cold this weekend. I even thought I had a sinus infection, and went to the doctor. She told me I had allergies. Funny how I caught these “allergies” from my daughter (who was treated for a sinus infection earlier in the week) and have now passed along the “allergies” to my son. Hmmm…
The result of this is that I did very little in the way of work and now it’s 10:45 on Monday morning and I just now realized I’d never written my post for today.
Here’s to catching up!
1. Charcoal grilling
I’ve used a gas grill for years, but I’ve been wanting to try charcoal for a while. So far, I’m really enjoying it. It does take longer than the gas grill, but there’s the added benefit of toasted marshmallows at the end of the meal, so it’s worth it.
We’ve grilled steaks and hamburgers on it so far. I’m looking forward to more experimenting this summer. I’ll have a post up soon about grilling the steaks.
2. Pressure cooking
I’ve had my pressure cooker for several years now, but I don’t use it much. In fact, I’d started a post about why I’m not jumping on the pressure cooker bandwagon. And then I decided I’d better give it a try again.
Look for some pressure cooker recipes here on the blog soon, as well as my take on when it makes sense to use this appliance.
3. I went to the grocery.
I realize this isn’t exciting. But this is about as exciting as the last week has been for us. I shopped with the Slow Cooker list, which turned out to be perfect for experimenting with the pressure cooker over the weekend.
