Learning to cook


My DH has decided that he should learn to cook – probably  so  he will get more meals on time.   That’s fine with me, but I certainly can laugh at what he chooses to cook.   Today he found, in the back of one of the kitchen drawers, a bean salsa soup package that must have been purchased at least 5 years ago.   Apparently I didn’t see this when I was cleaning cupboards.  So that’s what he is working on today.    (It turned out to be very good.)IMG_0983

Since beans take a while to cook, I decided to put some potatoes, parsnips, carrots, onions and broccoli stems in the new one pot.   It took about 15 minutes for them to get up to pressures, but only 10 to cook.   Do you remember how the vegetables tasted when cooked with pot roast?   The vegetables were so soft and flavors infused.   That is the way they turned out, and they taste wonderful.   Perfect meal with a tossed salad.


And even more wonderful is the fact that I made enough for 2 more meals this week.
