Larry (and Fran) had gotten me an Instapot for my birthday – and we got to put it to good use the first week. I had been so motivated by the cookbook I saw at the Barnes & Noble back in New Jersey that I got the cookbook first without even having an Instapot, that once we finally did have it, we had to dive in. As you’ll see, it was successful and a lot of fun for us – I don’t think Larry expected me to be so into it, as cooking was more his thing and not mine. But I loved the gimmick of cooking all in one pot. Of course the mise en place is where all the real work goes. These two meals took place a few days apart – unfortunately we had a worrisome time in between as Larry’s abdomen started to swell and City of Hope basically got very concerned about what was happening. It’s so fucking unfair what happened, as I write about this in March 2020. Fuck all of it.
