B: Two eggs scrambled with ham, a 1/2 cup refried black beans, and 2% milk
L: Seared ahi tuna, a ceasar salad (kicked the croutons off the restaurant offering), and a diet cola
S: String cheese and a cup of green tea
D: Pinto Bean and beef stew with cumin and cilantro (big thanks for Kalyn's Kitchen for this recipe: http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/2009/02/pressure-cooker-recipe-for-pinto-bean.html
), a side salad with ranch, and 2% milk
S: Wedge of Laughing Cow Light (couldn't find the regular at BJs).
It was fun to cook dinner and actually chop veggies and herbs especially with our new knife set. Sharp knives are awesome. I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for this round, but it's still early. I was off yesterday so I had time to plan a provisions trip to BJs and Giant and stock up on some P1 staples like refried beans, chicken breast and ground sirloin. I also snagged some turkey sausage and a couple sirloin steaks. Kalyn's Kitchen is a great site for injecting good flavors in the SB WOE. I made her stew (link above) stovetop with canned beans and no pressure cooker and found it to be awesome. I didn't add the extra water or broth as Kalyn advises and ended up with a thicker stew that was more to my liking.
