Well we made our second trip to Sam’s. It is just amazing how much cheaper crap is there. We went pretty late, right about closing. The guy who checks your receipt out said “want a chicken?”. My heart filled with joy with the thought he was gonna give me a live chicken and how I would train it to ride the trails with me, but no it was a left over rotisserie chicken.

So Theresa loves stew. Mostly cuz it is gravy soup I think. Figured this would be a perfect time to test out the pressure cooker. We get a cheap cut of meat and usually let it simmer in broth for a few hours to soften it up. 10 minutes in the pressure cooker and it was tender like a strange beef silly putty.

Did the carrots and taters for 2.5 minutes and they were perfect

Made up a roux to thicken it a bit and it was done. It is insane how fast it was and how it tasted like we cooked it all day.

I took the chicken we got from Sam’s and one we had roasted a few nights before and made some uber stock with them and the pressure cooker.
