meal plan

I got a pressure cooker for my birthday (thanks, Mom and Dad!), and I'm trying out different recipes in it this week. It's the 8-ounce Presto stainless steel pressure cooker, and, so far, it's very easy to use and cooks foods fast, fast, fast. Love it!

Here's the meal plan for the week:

Meal 1: Summer squash and black bean sauté with zucchini salsa verde and brown rice
Meal 2: Asian chicken packet, cucumber salad, brown rice, and arugula
Meal 3: South Pacific shrimp with brown rice
Meal 4: Indian chicken packet, steamed Romano beans, and grilled summer squash
Meal 5: Grilled sirloin, steamed beets, and sautéed beet greens with wheat berries


  1. what the heck is a chicken packet? Sounds like space shuttle food.

  2. It's a foil packet with chicken & sauce inside--the chicken steams in the packet in the pressure cooker. I use foil packets to cook vegetables on the grill also.
