sigh - I've been down with the flu/cold ALL WEEK - 5 days I stayed home!  today is the first day I did any thing productive

i forgot to put any tomato product in my soup!  hahahahaha....
and low and behold I don't have any canned tomatoes!  crazy!
so I stirred in a whole can of tomato paste and yeah - it's good.
I really just wanted something to drink to keep this fluid train going - all hail to the musinex!

i have no voice either

I made fruit water today
1 cup pinapple 1 cup mango - 8 cups water - 5 mins - QR
you can add ginger or herbs and use any combo - good stuff

Do you then add ice?

some people will drink it warm - especially lemon water - which sort of gets the stink out of your ring too :)

i strained it and chilled it
my dh and ds don't really care for it but I do
it's very watery - it just has a nice a fruit flavor - and I think would be great with VODKA!!!!  :)

you could make lime water ice cubes for Vodka tonics!  oh boy!

Thanks. I think I will enjoy this in the summer.

To be fair, I think that most things are great with vodka.  I promise I am not having any now.

I made another rice pudding. Next time Iím going to make it closer to serving. The pudding seems to get absorbed.

I also used the IP to quickly cook some corn.

I have never had spaghetti squash before. I picked up a small one.

7 minutes on steam, then QR. Instructions were that if it wasnít soft enough steam again for 1 or 2 minutes. Having never had this squash, I wasnít sure but it seemed soft enough. Turned out a bit al dente. But I enjoyed it.

We got a spiral ham. I threw the bone in the instant pot with split peas and onions and carrots and made a quick soup for lunch yesterday. Soooo good. I only made split pea soup for the first time last year. Never thought I'd like it since I'm not a huge fan of peas, but I LOVE it.

SL thatís good to know about spaghetti squash. It looks like the IP really shaved off a lot of cooking time.

We have some recipes we really enjoy with it if youíre interested.
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

I was thinking about you while cooking it. :)

Definitely interested. Do we have a separate thread for spaghetti squash? This time, I just heated up some stewed tomatoes to put on it. But I think even just melted butter would have been good.

I love it with olive oil, garlic and parmagiano.  Would love to hear other recipes.

Did you do it whole, SL?  I do it in the microwave.  Might be about the same.  7 minutes, depending how big. Pierce it a few times first.

I put 1 1/2 cups water into IP. Placed trivet in. Cut spaggetti squash in half and spooned out seeds. Stood the two halfís on trivet, open side up.

I was thinking the IP and microwave are sometimes similar times. But I find things come out dryer from the microwave.

I almost had an instant pot fail last night. I was making carbonara and had pasta and chicken in the IP, but it wasn't coming up to pressure. And there was steam coming out around the edges of the lid. Finally after around 20-30 minutes, I tried releasing pressure to open the lid and look, but there was no pressure to release. I opened the lid and looked at the sealing ring and it wasn't seated right. But the pasta was cooked, so we just ate it. (The chicken had been mostly cooked when I sauteed it, and after steaming for a half hour, it was definitely done.) So lesson learned--make sure the sealing ring is on properly and steam coming out is not right.  :crazy:

I had a similar experience early on in my IP adventures.
