Sometimes I cook things for dinner and it's really good but I don't share it with you because I think, "wait, I can't blog this because it's too easy, it's barely a recipe".
This was almost one of those times.
But today, for some reason, I had another thought come to me immediately after dinner. I thought "Well, it is super easy and that is EXACTLY why I should tell people. This might be something they haven't thought of.". So, call it a recipe or call it a suggestion or heck just take it as me bragging that I made dinner in 6 minutes. Whatever you call it, I'm happy at the end of the day that I'm sharing it because it was yummy.
I hope you are one of my readers that took advantage of Prime Day and bought an Instant Pot for super cheap. If not, seriously, still consider it. I paid full price and it was worth every penny. I actually use my Instant Pot more than I use my Ninja Blender and more than my panini machine. I'm confident in saying it's my most used kitchen appliance/tool.
