Yesterday I went on an IP cooking rampage. I got up in the morning and made pork chops for daily lunches and then I went on to make my first pot roast along with carrots, onions, parsnips and potatoes. The roast recipe called for cooking the roast for 45 minutes, and then allowing it to naturally pressure release. Once that process is finished you can toss in your veggies. Well, I had cut up quite a bit of vegetables and I was determined to stick all of them in the pot. I closed the lid and reset the IP to cook an additional 9 minutes. I waited for what seemed like eternity for the IP to come to pressure again and it was taking longer than I could ever imagine was acceptable. I decided to do a quick release so I could get into the pot and perhaps empty it out a bit; I was certain I ruined dinner. When I opened the pot everything was cooked to perfection! I don’t even know or understand how that happened. I will just go with it and assume that there was some sort of miracle that took place inside my Instant Pot.
I did not go to the gym today, however, I used hand weights at home and hoped for the best. This evening I watched Wedding Crashers, I drank wine, and ate thin crust pizza in celebration of some excellent news that I received this afternoon; hopefully I can share this next week. I do not live my life with regrets. This weekend I will work a little harder and eat much better but no apologies for partaking in wine and food in celebration. Back on track tomorrow.
Have a wonderful evening!
