Instant Pot Macaroni & Cheese

Instant Pot Macaroni and cheese, Chasing Saturdays

Macaroni and cheese is the best comfort food, ever! I wanted to try it in the Instant Pot.  The IP continues to amaze me.  It hasn't left my counter yet! 

Harvest is still going on in Indiana. I would say we are at 99.9% done, with a few customers left to haul in.  The Instant Pot has really helped me out this fall, getting food prepared faster.  

I would also like to share with you some amazing views we have had lately at home. 

Indiana has not disappointed in sunrises or sunsets! I took this earlier this summer, from our back yard, what a view! 

A beautiful October sunset from our front yard!

This is my view during harvest, this November sunset was a bonus!

This is a great idea to cook this easy meal in the instant pot. This will took even less time then it takes in a regular receipt. I have found a lot of reviews on Trust my paper about meals that could be cooked in the instant pot. There you will find a list of that which will loose their original taste and should be cooked in original way.
