I talked it over with my husband, and we took the leap...we did it. Our first one! There were bumps and bruises, things didn't always go as planned. We went along, making it up as we went, consulting those who had gone before us. It seemed to make our life more seamless, Our new addition fit in perfectly.
Then we had the talk--should we have a second one? Would it work? Could we handle it? We talked it over again with our son. Our family and friends encouraged us and supported us along the way. It would be double the pressure, double the noise, double the work. Could a second one blend into our already busy family? Would it simplify things or make it harder?
We decided. Yes, we want another one.
Our second one came. We now had two! Twice the pressure! Twice the fun! I don't know how we lived so long with just one.
One was great, two was FANTASTIC!
It's been two months now, and I can't imagine my life without them. They fit so nicely in our family.
My husband, son, and I are in love!
Yes, we are the proud owners of TWO Instant Pots.
If you haven't heard of them, check them out. It makes meal preparation with a family SO much easier. Hardboiled eggs in 12 min total. Frozen chicken on your plate in an hour. Rice, 15 min. I heard you can do cheesecake in it, too.
And the BEST part is you don't have to stand there and watch the stove. It is a pressure cooker and crockpot all in one. Dump in ingredients, turn on the right setting, and walk away.
Family life is busy and there is not always time to cook a wholesome meal. The Instant Pot has made it more feasible for my family to eat nutritiously. Having a baby can create some big changes in the way you plan and prepare your meals. As your postpartum doula, I can show you many tips and tricks if you are floundering with meal planning. And if you are an Instant Pot owner, I'll make my favorite recipe for you!
