Under Pressure and Evelyn
YEP there are cars that run on pressure, but so far they are not efficient!
Evelyn, BLESS HER HEART, does have one good quality (maybe two, possibly three). She critiques the timeliness of my blogs and actually reads here. But we do have one thing in common, me ‘n her do like to cook using a pressure cooker.
I remember once when I was around ten or so mama's pressure cooker blew up. Something on the top blew off and went into the ceiling for dad to patch. But mama kept using a pressure cooker, mostly in canning methinks. I know some of you use pressure to cook and can.
I have never had a mishap. I don’t have permission, but I don’t think it is a secret, so let me relate a story told by Don and verified by Evelyn.
Once Evelyn had a pot of green beans cooking under pressure when the handle screw came loose leaving a very small hole. Don said the pot went air born like a jet engine and began to spin round and round forcing green beans thru that small hole and painting the kitchen with mushy green beans. Now you would think that country girl would give up pressure cookers, but huh uh, she still uses one.
She graduated to an electric one and said it was much simpler to use than the stove top ones we have always used. I finally did cave in and lucked up on an electric at a good price. Now that I am using it and I must admit, as much as I hate to publicly, Evelyn was right. Yep I am enjoying this one. For years I have adjusted the ‘jiggle’, but now I do not have to. So THANKS Evelyn.
BUT just to make you a little envious lady, we are warm down here. ;-) Don’t worry, we will keep the lamp on for a couple weeks for you.
Now hug Don and try to be nice. :-O
