Okay folks, so Christy came up with a brilliant theme for Run Swim Bike Cook 2017: Under Pressure. As in, we're cooking with a pressure cooker. Read all about it here.
Even without a pressure cooker, the theme is quite apropos. I have so much to say, but it's getting harder and harder to find a spare moment. Life here is SO BUSY! Wish I had a moment to tell you about it, but I don't. :) Instead, let me just say that the more pressure I feel, the more important it is for me to exercise and eat well. So even though I have no idea how I will squeeze it all in, I am truly excited to embark on Run Swim Bike Cook once more.
Christy's post has all the details, but just as a quick reminder, during February we are doing the equivalent of an Ironman triathlon (Run 26.2 Swim 2.4 Bike 112) plus a weekly cooking challenge. This week's cooking challenge is to prepare some kind of beans in a pressure cooker. I'm thrilled to learn how to use a pressure cooker, but I need your advice. I don't own a pressure cooker--any suggestions on what kind to acquire? I'm always looking to save a buck, but my mom reminded me that a thrift store acquisition could be dangerous if damaged. Should I splurge on one of the electric programmable ones? I'd love any input.
One last word--feel free to modify RSBC to any level that works for you. We want whoever is interested to participate at a level that challenges appropriately. A bit of pressure can bring out our best, but too much can leave us squooshed.
Happy cooking all!
