The Coming Week and Our Menu Plan for July 18, 2016

Happy Monday! Having a good summer?
Did you participate in the Amazon Prime Day last week? We did and picked up an Instant Pot on Prime Day. I actually hadn’t heard about this pot but saw it while we were watching a cooking show. We’ve been noticing the contestants use this digital pressure cooker and (at least according to the judges) put out these flavorful dishes in record time. So it was on our “to buy” list and after some research I decided that Instant Pot would probably work for us since we needed to replace our slow cooker too. Yeah! Isn’t that great? It’s a slow cooker too! And a rice cooker (did that yesterday), yogurt maker, and some other stuff.
So far I’ve made chuck roast and a brown rice/wild rice mix in it. It’s been very nice so far.
I’m still diving in so I’ll let you know how it’s coming along.
Around the House
In other news I’m trying to find the motivation to do some summer cleaning. With summer in full force I’ve been doing the bare minimum but after noticing what looked to be a sticky film of dust on a bookshelf I think I need to more.

At the Dining Table
I’m loving my new Instant Pot and had to refrain from hugging it today. This week I don’t really have any meals planner to go into it but I’ll try the lentil soup on Thursday.
We had crab cakes last week. They were so good but so expensive. Not sure when we’ll be repeating that dish again.
Here’s my menu…

Monday: Pan Friend Tilapia
