Pressure Cooker Mashed Potatoes

“Pressure” is one of those odd words in the English language. Sometimes used to describe physical force exerted, influence, or persuasion, this time of year we tend to think of stressful urgency. After all, isn’t that what cooking around holiday time seems to feel like?

My mother-in-law was not a fan of stew. She told me on several occasions that stew is for people who are “too lazy to make soup”. I (respectfully) disagree with her opinion, and believe that stew is more practical for those days when I don’t have time to cut veggies into dainty little pieces to be gracefully slurped along with copious amounts of broth. Give me something thick and hearty. And sooner, rather than later!

Inspiration can come from the most unusual places. While on the phone last evening with a fantastic customer service representative, conversation gravitated towards food – no surprise, as it was supper-time. If you’re reading this, Anthony, your suggestion of modified chicken alfredo prompted this amazing dish. Two batches later, I’m still hoping for leftovers!

Liquid sunshine. That’s what this is! When you’re feeling worn out, exhausted, vulnerable to every virus, this is even more therapeutic than a catnap in the sun. And the taste is so amazing that you will make it over and over again – even when it’s not soup season.
