    Porridge?!? You can keep that Smoke, I'm going to Dean's house for some of that bundt cake. (If we all show up looking pitiful you'll make us a cake, right Dean? lol)

    What is this instant pot you speak of? I'd get one if it made things instantly all on its own.

    It's the newest kitchen gadget to really catch on. Basically, it is just a fancy pressure cooker, lol, but websites have sprung up that give you some really great recipes and tips. There are several brands on the market and " Instant Pot " is a brand. For most of the recipes, it's a one-pot, easy way to make homemade, superfast food.

    Electric Pressure Cooker, Smart Cooker, Multi Cooker, 饮尚宝电压力锅 DW just fixes for the two of us, but a 2# roast, potatoes,and carrots, takes about 45 mins. Because it cooks with steam and pressure food remains moist. Also it's kind of a one pot meal deal. Using trivets, racks, etc. you can fix more then one thing at a time in it.

    Also, the porridge is a mixture of white grits, yellow grits, cracked wheat, & whole rice, we like ours with just butter on it, but you can add white & brown sugar, honey, raisins, nuts, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, sliced bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple pie spice, & fresh cream if you want a little change. Good stuff on a cold morning.

    Edit: we also do a hot cereal from the same place - 10 Grain is a mixture of cracked wheat, barley, stone ground white and yellow grits, millet, rolled oats, rye, triticale, brown rice, soy grits & whole flax seeds. Add a little fruit or sugar, its really good.

    The last of the Beef Tips and Rice for dinner. And an RC Cola Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla float for dessert.

    I had a sports banquet to go to with Princess tonight. Instead of the usual pizza or gross fried appetizer buffet, was pleasantly surprised by Chinese food that was very good.

    One of the other mwacs put together a slide show of photos we had both taken at the games. It was cute with fun music to go along with it.

    Our crowdfunding campaign has had a great start. Through just over 24 hours, we are 75% funded (or about $9k so far), and we are the top trending campaign in CT right now, as well as the top trending brewery in the country. So this is a good morning, haha.

    It rained hard a couple times last night.
    The last tarp I put up seems to have stopped the leak into my room and the utility hallway was dry this morning.
    It is a sorry looking grey day here.
    I'm over in Cold Springs for propane.
    5 hours is assured. Maybe more depending upon what she says when I get back.
