Instant Pot Black Friday

Affiliate links are included in this post.

 

What did I do before the Instant Pot? I almost don't remember. This has been one of my favorite kitchen appliances since I purchased it last Black Friday. I never sweat if I don't thaw out the meat, I just throw it in the Instant Pot!

The 8qt is on sale (and the 6 quart) which is about what I paid for the 6 quart last year. Saving 37% off.

What's your favorite thing to cook in it? (aff)

Sacrifice

Old Man's Cave Logan, Ohio

As I woke up this Veterans Day morning, I realized that this Veterans Day would be very difficult for so many families. Although, I'm sure it is never easy.  I can't comprehend what it is like waking up daily with a loved one gone on military duty. I can't even fathom what wives, mothers, fathers, husbands, brothers or sisters do each day without their loved one being just a phone call away. Military families sacrifice so much.

One definition from Webster Dictionary defines sacrifice as, destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else b : something given up or lost.  I define what you do as selfless.

Whatever your reason is for joining your particular branch of the military, you are ultimately making a sacrifice for my family, my children and for our freedom. For this, I am truly grateful. My family and I will keep you in our prayers and hope that you can find comfort and peace today.

Gabreial

 3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. - 2 Corinthians 3-4. NIV (Whole Chapter)

Finding Neverland on Broadway Cincinnati!

We simply adore Broadway here at Vintage Indie. Especially stories that tell the history behind famous musicians and ones like Finding Neverland that tell the story of J.M. Barrie, the man and writer, behind Peter Pan.

"Based on the Academy Award-winning Miramax motion picture by David Magee, and the play The Man Who Was Peter Pan by Allan KneeFinding Neverland follows the relationship between playwright J.M. Barrie and the family that inspired Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up – one of the most beloved stories of all time. Directed by Tony®-winner Diane Paulus (PippinHair) with book by Olivier Award®-nominee James Graham, music and lyrics by Gary Barlow (Take That) and Grammy Award®- winner Eliot Kennedy, and choreography by Emmy Award®-winner Mia Michaels (“So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque du Soleil’s Delirium), this new musical, packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, is a timeless story about the power of imagination… and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up."

Prepare your heart as you follow J.M. Barrie, and his relationship with widow Sylvia and her four young sons: Jack, George, Michael and Peter as he embraces who he is and the man he wants to be.

Much like last night's audience you may find yourself falling for J.M. Barrie's dog Porthos who was originally a St. Bernard. Porthos was quite the attraction on stage, and is the reason J.M. Barrie came to know the Llewelyn Davies' boys.
