Take tonight for instance. Tonight I wasn't feeling so well. I even skipped our evening Relief Society meeting. Danny came home early (around 6 pm) in case I felt well enough to go to my meeting.
I decided I needed chicken soup for dinner. I made this recipe with a few variations. I used precooked chicken this time, added lots of extra frozen veggies, and used all noodles instead of half rice.
I had a 10 lb. bag of carrots in my fridge, plenty of celery, and a few limes. Everything else could be found in my freezer or pantry.
A well-stocked pantry is a major timesaver for me. Prep time was probably 10 minutes to chop carrots and celery, pull frozen veggies, chopped onions and pre-cooked and diced chicken out of the freezer, grab half a dozen cans of chicken broth and a couple handfuls of egg noodles and toss in the pressure cooker.
It only took 8 minutes at pressure to cook.
I can't even get all my kids buckled in as quickly as that!
If you use a pressure cooker for your family, I'd LOVE for you to share your favorite recipes. Pressure cooking works for me!
