What I Shared This Week

I purchased my Instant Pot last summer and have had so much fun experimenting with recipes.  You’ve probably noticed that I’ve featured quite a few Instant Pot recipes that caught my eye on past Best of the Weekend parties.  I shared my first Instant Pot blog post this week, Instant Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Stew.  This recipe is so easy and it was ready to eat in under 30 minutes.

Musings of a Vintage Junkie shared her latest Vintage Kitchen Finds.  One of her finds was a 1988 Pillsbury Dough Boy Cookie Jar.  My grandmother got one of these in 1988 through a refund offer.  She gave him to me and he’s been in hiding in a closet ever since.  I’m going to pull him out and display him now that I’ve been reminded of how cute he is.  AnnMarie has an Etsy shop where she sells her things.  If you like vintage, you might want to check it out.

I Should Be Mopping the Floor shared a Free Printable Menu Planner.  Meal planning would certainly be easier using this colorful printable.

I look forward to what is shared for this week’s party!
