Sometime this week it hovered close to 80 degrees. I ditched my boots and opted for the brand stinking new Cole Haan. Peep-toe low heels.
Bad decision. They pinched my feet.
Still, I walked the whole day in them, at work and after work. Bad decision! My feet were in throbbing pain later that night.
Anyway, while at the store trying to decide what to cook for dinner and ignoring the pain, I saw that round roasts were on sale. Dirt cheap! I wasn’t in the mood for roast beef, but with a price that low and a pain that high, my dinner was quickly decided.
Good decision! Things were starting to turn around.
At home, I continued making good decisions. I put the Cole Haan back in their box and placed it on the highest shelf in the closet, then…I did NOT turn on the oven.
I used the Instant Pot, instead, to cook the roast, because… who would want a hot kitchen on a hot day?!
But mainly because Mollie told me to. You should know by now it’d do you no good to second guess her.
Besides, I needed to get off my feet as quickly as possible. I didn’t need to toil in the kitchen any longer than necessary.
Missing the crisp brown crust of the oven roasted beef, the Instant Pot roast didn’t look as handsome, but otherwise it was easy, quick, and delicious.
Especially when turned into these hot sandwiches.
I’ll be trying out more Fiesta Friday Featured Recipes in the weeks to come, people… Or months, or years to come… So many great recipes! Your recipes! That I’ve been hoarding all this time!
Recipes such as these:
“Cornbread made even better into a bundt cake with topped with sweet honey-butter glaze.” — Lily
“I am so excited to try this Gluten-Free Sweet Corn Bread Bundt Cake. I don’t have a gluten allergy but think I may be intolerant. I have all of these ingredients in my pantry and love the idea of adding some jalapenos to this…. we like things spicy in my house!” — Alisa

“Now this is a master piece and labour of love – a triple layer cake cover in cookies and cream frosting, and topped with Oreos and chocolate ganache!” — Lily
