both-and

It was the Boston Pobble who reminded me that we can have both-and and that it doesn't need to be either-or.

When I first suggested that we get an electric pressure cooker, Terry objected saying that she liked my old stove-top pressure cooker with the jiggling weight regulator on top. It reminded her of growing up in the mountains and her grandmother's pressure cooker.

When I became convinced that an electric pressure cooker would be a real boone to our weeknight workday cooking I told Terry that it could be both-and. We'll keep my stove-top pressure cooker with its "old style jiggling pressure regulator" (to quote a pressure cooker guru who will go unnamed) and use it for beans. But we can buy an electric one too.

It's worked out well.

When I was having a hankering for Chicken Cacciatore from one of my new Pressure Cooker cookbooks, Terry said she wanted veggies. I followed the recipe and threw in some veggies as well.

Both-and.

Thank you Boston Pobble. (And Tahoe Mom's husband Dean for having done all of the advance work and making it an easy process for me.)
