I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm an introvert and a homebody. Friday night to Sunday is this precious pause of time and space in which I get to catch up with a close friend or two and cuddle with my dog, Quentin, who spends most of her days alone while I'm at work. The weekend is a gift we don't take lightly.
But it's a vicious cycle: Sunday afternoon hits, and you think back on how nice it was to avoid the train all weekend. Then Sunday evening hits, and you start stressing about an early morning meeting you have on Monday. Before you know it, it's Monday and the weekend is gone forever. The "Sunday Scaries," some people like to call that sudden surge of dread ("some people" is me).
The French Way to Instant Pot Is as Chic & Effortless as You’d Expect
Every fall, I look forward to firing up my big and mighty cocotte with the promise of slow-braised goodness awaiting me at the end of the weekend. A tough piece of chuck slowly yielding to pot roast perfection, a mountain of short ribs getting coaxed to be the best versions of themselves after an hours-long interlude: These are the magical transformations that make cold-weather meals.
Yet the crisp fall air always seems to coincide with an uptick in tempo of life, in general. School starts, work picks up, the holidays loom (Thanksgiving is in less than a month y’all). All this to say, life gets busy! And so it’s no surprise that there are legions of Instant Pot fans among us.
