I've been wondering about an Instant Pot for ages, and in-person and on-line consultations all agree that it's a good investment. Amazon had a promotion and then there we were, peering at the inscrutable owner's manual. MoBob made the inaugural tagine which actually came out pretty well.
I took a day off work on my birthday and visited the Sylvia Plath exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery, and then Target. A working mom's ideal day!
This year DC Rec Day was in our neighborhood so after French class we met up with our friends.
Sunday was unusually busy, even for us. We went to the local Episcopal Church for the annual Blessing of the Animals, then we saw a production of "The Adventures of the Extra Ordinary Super Heroes" with City Kids Theater (Z said he didn't like it because everyone's capes were too small), and then a Cal alum playdate. Only DC would have a Fibonacci sequence themed playground.
We finally tried out the carousel at National Harbor on a golden Sunday evening.
I have an instant pot and like it for the things it is good for. If you have been exposed to the Instant Pot community on Facebook, you will see that some people think it is good for everything. I love it for steaming things like corn and artichokes, and (surprisingly) for making lasagna.
