Hey Friend, 

Ok, Lets talk cooking. A few months ago I bought extra crock pot because I cook alot for us.  

My new found friend is the instant pot. This thing is the bomb diggidy. I know what your saying - Kevin - your slow, every body has an instant pot.

Maybe not or maybe you bought one and have not taken the leap.  Truthfully, mine had been sitting on the counter for a few months - finally I bought a 5 ingredient only instant pot cook book. Game changer. 

If you are a busy mom or just busy and trying to eat better, finding good food is one thing - finding time & techniques to prepare it - is another. 

This thing can help you, particularly when you didn't do the meal planning you should have earlier in the week. If you like to cook - get one.
