(In the kitchen, that is!)
When I was growing up, my parents had a pressure cooker. When I got married, I didn't get a pressure cooker to take to my new home. After all, they are quite expensive! It took a bit to get used to things taking much longer to cook, but I adjusted.
One of the things I listed on my wish list was a pressure cooker. My sweet darling husband perused my wish list before he went out Christmas shopping for me, and guess what? I got a pressure cooker for Christmas!
It has been wonderful! I love cooking with it!!! It is a true time-saver, worth every single penny!
I do have to say that if Kevin had gotten me a pressure cooker as a gift the first few years we were married, I wouldn't have been too thrilled. LOL Things do change after a few years!
