I don’t know what in the world happened to July, but it’s already time for a new round of Currently! Currently, I am…
Hearting: My new electric pressure cooker. I’ve been reading about these for a good while now and finally took the plunge. This thing is rocking my world! I’ve used it nearly every day–and sometimes multiple times during the day–since I got it. Here‘s the one I got. I’ll have more to say about it very soon in another post! (Short story: the manual is basically useless, but the cooker works really well!)
Watching: West Wing. Thanks to Netflix I’m revisiting this favorite of mine from years ago. Man, I loved this show, and it’s every bit as smart and fast-moving as I remember it being.
Exploring: The DuPont State Recreational Forest, near Asheville, North Carolina. Gene and I camped near Asheville so we could visit the Biltmore Estate and do some hiking. We decided to hike a waterfall trail in the DuPont Forest. We hiked about 9 miles or so and enjoyed seeing some of God’s beautiful handiwork!
Creating: My To Be Read list for August I’ll post it here on the blog Friday!
Eating: Farro. As in, the grain farro. When we visited the Biltmore Estate a couple of weeks ago we ate lunch in Cedric’s Tavern. I ordered the farro “risotto,” and it was amazing! I’ve made a couple of versions of it since we came home, the second time using my electric pressure cooker. And look what I just found! THE recipe!
