Cooking Under Pressure

I think all but the luckiest of us have cooked under pressure.  Some of us have cooked under pressure night after night, trying to make a dinner that will be apreciatated.

But in this case, cooking under pressure refers to cooking using a pressure cooker.

Pressure cookers have come up in the world, now they are electronic or electric.  They are filled with safeties to protect us from the specacular explosions of the past.

But try finding a basic recipe book for one. I think I've made it pretty well known  that we are basci people, not fancy shmancy, so recipes using quail or dried apricots are not for us.

Give us the basic info on how to cook rice or spaghetti in one.  How to cook a chicken breast, or better, a frozen chicken breast.

Those recipes would better serve us.

In the meantime, I've been searching You Tube.  I've found some great recipes, never to be found again.

Now this is cooking under pressure, without the cooking!

How Blogs Move Us

Blogs are mostly unsung and ignored.  Unless you happen to read them.  I've been reading them for about 5 years, and I've seen new ones, or new to me, ones come on, and  I've seen them leave.

The ones that left have done it without drum roll, just me showing up and the blogger not.  And that has left me feeling sad.

Other blogs are started for a purpose, like what it is like to live off the power grid, which is something I've always wanted to try, but never have, and after my adventures of being powerless after a storm, I probably will never do willingly.  This blogger is starting to question if this is the lifestyle she wants to follow.  It's a hard life, so I can understand. But the thought of not having this blog to read in the future, is saddening.

Blogs, maybe they aren't as light weight as they are treated by society!
