Next time I will try 5 tea bags. I’d like it a bit stronger.

DS’s and SO are tea drinkers, so I had them try a glass before they left. DS loves anything lemon, so he added lemon and loved it. SO, like me, thought it was a bit weak...though they would have left tea bags in longer because they also like tea bitter.

Has anyone ever made spaghetti in sauce in their IP?

I want to try it tonight because I cannot open any windows and steam will cook me.

I am thinking of making some fruit water. (To then make ice cubes to use in soda water.)

Can I wrap the fruit/berries in cheese cloth and put in IP? Would be a lot easier than straining after.

I’ve not heard of doing this in the IP, but does make sense, if you don’t want any fruit solids in the water.  I’d just infuse my water directly with a few macerated or muddled berries, sliced cucumbers, and slices of citrus and/or strawberries.  Whatever is handy.  A local pizza restaurant had a jug of strawberry/basil infused water.  It was yummy!

I did try it. I found it a bit strong. I did like using the ice cubes in soda water. Much better than the flavours you can buy for soda water.

I have not tried these unstuffed cabbage rolls. But I plan to.

https://www.simplyhappyfoodie.com/instant-pot-unstuffed-cabbage-rolls/

This was dinner tonight.

I used 2 pounds meat instead of one, but otherwise basically followed the recipe. It was good, but not quite as flavourful as I would have liked. We decided it needs more tomato.

But, the cabbage and rice came out the perfect texture. (I used basmati rice...that’s what I had.)

This is in my pot right now. Used 2 pounds meat again. Added a can of spaghetti sauce as well as the canned tomatoes. Hoping I didn’t screw it up. The directions say to add ingredients, stir, then add canned tomatoes on top and do not stir. I added everything and stirred.

It’s still preheating...hope it pressurizes.  :crossed:

Am I the only one that uses FAS as my recipe book?

LOL, SL - I do too.  ;D

Last week I made the Mac and Cheese recipe that Becca posted awhile back. I made it in the pot the day before my company came, then popped it in the oven to reheat and brown the top before serving. It was really supposed to be a side dish for the meat eaters and the main dish for my niece, but it was clearly the evening’s biggest hit.  :thumbsup:

I should try that.

Yesterday I bought a cabbage to make ColeSlaw. It doesn’t use much of the cabbage, but can’t use the rest to make rolls. So I remembered making this and searched.
