Calendaring Happiness

Zombie flu defeated by Instant Pot

by | Jan 18, 2018 | Blog, Health

Do you have the flu?

I feel like one of the last humans alive in the zombie apocolypse.

Everyone has the flu and we are trying to keep it out! So anything we can do to keep our immunity up is a big plus. I’m grateful we had flu shots in September. Calendar win!  My son shows off his bravery.

Surviving the zombie apocalypse. Step 1, flu shot.

This kid is in a musical that until 7:30 every night for the next two weeks, plus six shows.  So dinner is going to be a challenge.

AND, since the happiness theme is HEALTHY EATING this week and I have an Amazon gift card from my mother-in-law burning a hole in my wallet, I’m buying an Instant Pot.

The Instant Pot. Click on the image to go to Amazon to learn more.

Have you seen these? Do you have one yet? They are the #1 product on Amazon!

Not bad for essentially a re-branded pressure cooker from the 70s!  When I first spotted them, I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I could look at that quirky font every day and take it seriously.

But I did find out that it was created by a team of Canadian engineers who loved to cook, and National Public Radio described it as ‘not just a crock’ so maybe there is a bit more science behind it than the font suggests.

All the same, I think I’ll make my own Instant Pot sticker to put over its name to give it a little more dignity.

Look, you can even take a glam picture and it just looks like it has the WRONG lipstick on.  These things distract me.


I don’t know what I’m going to make with mine yet.  If you have a favorite, post a recipe link!

If you get one too, post here and we’ll try some new things together.
