Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Sounds yummy. I have lamb roast in the oven, marinated with lemon juice, rosemary and olive oil. I´ll serve with it vegetable gratin and salad.

And tomorrow I´ll bake a chocolate cake.

Here is a picture of my pressure cooker stuffed artichoke. So fast and easy to cook in the IP.



Sorry no pictures of the main course. Everyone wanted to eat.

I didn't get to the cheesecake last night so I made it today. It will be chilled and topped tomorrow.

Here is a picture of my un-topped pressure cooker cheesecake.
Will update finished cake picture tomorrow. I have never had a pressure cooker cheesecake. Can't wait to try it.

The lamb looks fantastic!

We ended up with only 9 for dinner and lots of food for folks to take home.

Here is the Amana ham I did in the roaster and was probably one of the best I've had.

For this weekend I got out a standing rib roast but still want to do a pulled pork and chicken wings. We will have no company so it may be way too much food.

I also found a recipe for mac and cheese with dungeness crab I want to make.
