Beans and bacon made in my InstantPot!
2 pounds of Hurst’s Ham BeanPinto Bea with Ham Flavor,  cleaned

12 cups of cold water

–add beans and water to InstantPot. Seal vent closed. Turn on BEAN/SOUP.

Allow to cook through cycle, 40 minutes.

While beans cook, fry 1 pound of thick sliced bacon (I used my oven) and drain.

Add bacon to cooked beans. Salt to taste.

Set on crock pot setting for two hours; you may want to add more water.
Enjoy!

Microwave Potatoes with Tuna

This meal is an AllRecipes AllStar review.

You will need:

1 pound small red potatoes, quartered

1/3 cup white wine vinegar

1/3 cup green onion (I didn’t use these)

1 clove minced garlic

1 (5 ounce) can of Bumblebee (r) Solid White Albacore Tuna in Water

2 tsp. olive oil

2 tsp. Dijon mustard (I used brown spicy mustard)

1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper

1 tbsp. parsley

I made this slightly different from the original recipe; here’s what I did:

Place potatoes in microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 5 minutes; carefully remove and allow to sit for 5 minutes (keep it covered).

Drain and chunk tuna in small bowl; add other ingredients to tuna.

Pour tuna into serving bowl. Add potatoes, including water left over from microwaving.

Serve immediately.

My son and I weren’t crazy about this recipe. I think it had too much white wine vinegar. If I make it again, I’ll use less.
