Easy Cheesy Chili Mac - Instant Pot or Not

Easy Cheesy Chili Mac – Instant Pot or Not

If you’re a follower, ya all know by now that I was down in Atlanta at the end of May, early June for my daughter’s wedding. I miss those guys so much, Jess & Brandon and their combination of seven (not a typo – seven) children. And I vowed to get Jess going with the Instant Pot I got her one Christmas, just to try to make life a bit easier. Well, it doesn’t get much easier than this Easy Cheesy Chili Mac, which can be made in the Instant Pot or in the standard old fashioned way, stove and oven.

Shaking Beef – Bò Lúc Lắc

Do you ever make a meal you’re so wild crazy about that you polish it all off regardless of how many servings it’s supposed to be? Well that happened when I made Shaking Beef – Bò Lúc Lắc not too long ago. In my defense my son was over, so he helped out a lot with the eating.

So I was trying to think of the last time I made Soup. It was so long, I had to look it up! I made a White Chicken Chili that can be made in the Slow Cooker, Instant Pot or on the Stove in January, and it’s pretty soup-like but the last bone fide soup I made was in December: My friend Tanya’s Instant Pot Mexican Chipotle Chicken Soup. So I’m due! You, my friends, are due! I’m getting out of my Mexican soup rut and shaking things up with this Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup Instant Pot/Stove Top.

Orzo with Sausage & Peppers

Orzo with Sausage & Peppers

If you follow me (and if you don’t, I’d love it if you do, see the right sidebar) you know I made Boston Sausage & Pepper Grinders right before Superbowl 2019. See the New England Patriots were playing the Los Angeles Rams (and the Patriots won) and I thought those “grinders” (that’s just the local name for sandwiches) would be perfect for the Superbowl or any game day, or really anytime! What’s not perfect? Leftovers. Leftover link sausages? They’re kinda sad. So I’ve refashioned them into Orzo with Sausage & Peppers.

So Happy New Year’s, everyone! I can’t believe it’s New Year’s Eve, already! So what do you do for New Year’s Eve? Me, I’m kind of an old curmudgeon. I mean back in the day I’d go out with the girls but these days I’m usually perfectly happy to stay in, stay warm & safe and maybe stay up till midnight.
