Actually, he thought it worked that way when he was a puppy. I convinced him otherwise. Dogs are "pack" oriented. They know who the top dog is, and as a dog owner, you have to establish yourself as the "top dog." Once a dog reaches that understanding, they are actually very happy.

Cats, on the other hand, never stop thinking that they are in charge, and their humans exist to serve them. A study from researchers at the University of Edinburgh determined that, if they were big enough, your pet cat would kill you and eat you.

and that is why they are called domesticated - and wild cats are called wild cats - 'cause they will eat you...

Size counts, dragn. When LittleBit nibbled at my hand it was no big deal. Had she been a "big cat", I'm pretty sure I would have lost that battle. And hand.

Hence, I see no reason to have a pet that has a bigger bite than I do.

I'm now an Instant Pothead

I have a stovetop pressure cooker, and there are some things that are best made in the pressure cooker. However, I have to monitor it so that it maintains pressure, so I don't use it as much as I could. I really like "set and forget" appliances.

Amazon had the 6 qt. Instant Pot for $60 on Prime Day. I'm not a member, so I asked my daughter to order it for me. By the time I sent her an email and she tried to order it, it was sold out. Damn!

Kohl's had the same pot for $70, but included $15 in Kohl's cash, bringing the price down to $55. That's the best price I've seen, so I bit. One more kitchen toy to play with.

Was it the Duo 6 quart? I have a duo 6 quart and an ultra 6 quart.

I think you’re going to love it.

It's the Duo 7 function, which is about 6 more than I will use. For slow cooking I'll continue to use the Cuisinart Multi-Cooker, which is an oval shape, and has a lot more surface area for browning, and much easier to clean. My stovetop pressure cooker is an 8 qt. Fagor, which is also much easier to clean. I love having all of these options. Fortunately, storage area is not an issue.

I'm confused. Probably because I'm not an Instant Pot user. If you already have a pressure cooker and a slow cooker, what will you use the IP for?

I'm sure Rosiecat would - small as she is! I sometimes catch her staring at me with a very calculating expression.

Dogs are very clever. They make you think you're in charge in order that they should get a quiet life.

DH as well as my Mother were very generous this year to me for my birthday.

I've already made two batches of Ice Cream, Vanilla with mini Chocolate chips and Meyer Lemon, MMM! (we had some vanilla ice cream with carrot cake for dessert for my birthday this evening )

AND
have vacuumed the entire house TWICE!
It's just hysterical to watch this thing do what it does.
Even DH was chuckling, "What did we do before technology?"

Now I don't have to hurt my back any further than it already is, I let the IRobot do it for me.
