WHEN YOUR OVEN IS BROKEN.......PRESSURE COOK IT!!!







My 4 year old Frigidaire wall oven quit....with no warning at all! What happened to things lasting 20 years or so? We paid good money for our stuff too. ANY WHO.....I thought I would share with yall one of my favorite things in the world....my PRESSURE COOKER. I bought an aluminum one from Wal-Mart over 10 years ago. It became very porous so I bought a stainless steel pot this year. The difference in price....aluminum $25.....Stainless $60. My Mama told me about the great Pressure Cooker and the time it saves.

You can cook fresh peas from your freezer in 3-4 minutes, dried peas (Soaked) in less than 10 minutes vs. cooking them for hours on the stove. You can also cook meat in them too and its way better than in a crock pot. I cooked a 3 pound pork lion in 30 minutes. If you dont have a pressure cooker.....make the investment and get one. Cooking is quicker and it is much better for you.

So while my roast was cooking I peeled the taters and cooked them, cooked some peas from my freezer....mashed the taters and had it all ready in about 35 minutes.

I'm glad I was able to teach you this one thing. Now where are your green leafy vegetables?

My Momma uses a pressure cooker sometimes too! Cool!

Now, do you have a fast fix for a broken dish washer, besides my own hands?!

This looks delicious! I used to use a pressure cooker, but got out of the habit, and don't even have it anymore. I was a little afraid of it!

I want to try those orange filled Oreos!
