Art bought another kitchen gadget! I was a bit unsure of it at first. The box was big and the instruction booklet thick...........hmmm. But it was on sale and about 500 reviews gave it a 5*.

So I went online and found a recipe specifically designed for the INSTANT POT and 

within a very short period of time, had a full meal in the pot. A little more delving into the instruction booklet and we were ready to fire it up. (plug it in and turn it on) It is electric.

The result was amazing. We had a 4 1/2 lb. chicken, complete with root veggies ready to eat in under an hour. We had almost 4 cups of super gelatin soup base as well. The actual cooking time was only 28 minutes. I was hooked. We ate some of the leftover chicken the following day and could not believe how moist and delicious it still was. I have also made an amazing pot of chicken lentil soup, which took about 18 minutes cooking time. Art is thrilled at the small amount of energy it consumes for the amount of food one prepares. 

We like it so much I think we will take it camping.

If you use one share with us your experience.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.
