Got my Farberware PC on Friday and had time to "play" today. My family loved my all PC lunch and gave me the ultimate compliment by cleaning it all up!

Here's my menu and recipes in case anyone is interested. (I had a slight problem which I will post in another letter).

Roasted Potatoes and Herbs
Chick Pea Salad
Swiss Chard

Roasted Potatoes and Herbs (adapted from from
1 Tbsp. olive oil,
4 potatoes cut into chunks (with skins)
1 onion chopped
Sprinkles of Italian seasoning
Slightly browned with browning feature
1/4 c water
Close lid and pressure on high for 5 minutes.

Chick Pea Salad
1/4 c raisins soaked
2 1/2 c chickpeas (or more) (cooked in my PC, of course)
1/2 c red pepper, chopped
1/2 c green onions, chopped
3 Tbsp fresh parsley

1/3 c olive oil
3 T lemon juice
1/2 t thyme
1/4 tsp salt
Stir till salt dissolves

Combine and refrigerate. optional: 3 T sliced green olives

The greens were so fast and easy. I just put in 3/4 c water and a bunch of Swiss Chard. Then put a tiny drissle of olive oil over top and sprinkled them with salt. 3 minutes pressured on high. (while I called the family to lunch!) Tiny bit of lemon juice on them at the table if desired.

There you go. I collected my reward at the end of the meal from my husband and son!
