AC is new to me again as you know having lived in the Bay Area. Can’t imagine not having it now. I went 14 years without, 4 years with and then 4 years without.
When we lived in Point Richmond, we rented an old Victorian at the top of a steep hill right off the Bay, with continual breezes. I worked at home, and I used to sneak the heat on in the morning because I was cold. In July.

We couldn’t grow tomatoes. We had enough sun, but not enough heat.

Boy, I miss that!

Went to Up and Under a fair amount when I lived in Marina Bay, that was a funny place.

Were all the tables lacquered with the extra-sticky finish then?

I still haven't figured out rugby, but it's less mystifying than Australian Rules football. 30+ years ago, ESPN carried that in the middle of the night, and I used to drag out my mad algebra skillz in an attempt to figure out in my head how it was scored, while trying to get fractious babies back to sleep.

I watched enough Aussie Rules Football in the early days of ESPN that I actually kinda figured it out.

Yesterday I got to wanting some red beans and rice. So I went to a local butcher and got a couple of links of house-made andouille and beautiful smoked ham hock. Found some small red dry beans at the grocery store along with broth, etc.

I started at 10:15 this morning and they are already done. I cooked them in my Ninja Foodi. Cut the sausage into rings and put a quick sear on them. Let the hock go for a while, as well. Put the meat on a plave. Diced up onion, green pepper, and celery and sauteed for a few minutes. Added 3 cloves of chopped garlic and Creole seasoning. Put the hock back in along with the dried beans 1 quart of low sodium stock, 3 cups of water, some crushed red, and 2 bay leaves. Pressure cooked for 15 minutes. Released the steam. Added the andouille and pressure cooked for another 20 minutes and let the pressure release naturally.

Letting them cool down a bit before I dive in. Took about 2 hours start to finish.

Can the rice be cooked in the pot as well, or do you have to do it on the side?

I still haven't convinced myself to give up precious counter space to one of these gadgets, and if I store it away, it will never get used. * cough * food processor * cough * crock pot

You can cook just about anything in the Foodi. It's basically an insta-pot with an air-fryer. It's pretty big, My wife calls it R2D2.

I store it away but it's easy to get to.
