We had one last dinner from the Instant Pot before it went on summer hiatus.
Okay, I don’t actually quit using it over the summer. I make a lot of beans (adzuki, pinto, cannellini, etc.) for salads and sides and I use it to make soup for the freezer with the vegetables from the potager. I just don’t use it to make dinner.
I, also, go on summer hiatus. Mon mari handles the outdoor cooking, smoking, and grilling.
Division of labor and all that….
This was a worthy final dish.
He added hot sauce. I was happy as is.

Things look different when one is riding a bike.
I have probably been through this village a few dozen times but never really noticed it before.
It really isn’t much more than an eye-blink:
This is it – 1 street that goes to that house and turns right & left to short dead-ends.
But it’s a lovely little spot…. Just look at the church (Don’t mind the car – there was someone doing work on the roof.)
Sadly, a lot of the churches are locked now, but it’s easy to get the key for a private tour.
