"Do I smell apple pie cooking?" Alice asked, popping her head up from behind the book she was reading on the couch in her jammies.

The smell wafting out of my Instant Pot as Morning Glory Oatmeal cooked to perfection one Sunday caught Alice's attention mid reading session.

"Nope, its oatmeal. But you're right...it does smell like apple pie. Always a sign that something is going to be good," I responded, sipping my coffee next to her while jotting down the recipe on a notepad.

That smell had me thinking I was onto something good. Especially since it was an easy breakfast I could make in my Instant Pot.

My Instant Pot. It might be the one thing saving my sanity right now in a season of change.

You see, we are in the process of moving (yuck). Into a house (YAY!!!). But at the moment, my entire house, including my kitchen, is in boxes in anticipation/preparation for the move. The only thing I didn't pack was our Instant Pot. Because you can do all the things in an Instant Pot....at least that was what I was going to challenge myself to do.

You see, this is not your basic move. Its not a move-boxes-from-one-home-to-the-next. This is a oh-our-new-house-isn't-ready-for-two-weeks-after-we-have-to-be-out-of-our-current-home kinda move. So our life is not only going into boxes, but into storage and us into an Air BnB for two weeks....with a lovely yet minimal kitchen.

And while this would be the perfect excuse to enjoy eating all the meals out at the adorable little cafes that are walking distance from our Air BnB, let's be honest and say that eating out loses its appeal when your HAVE to eat out. It's just not fun. And you miss home cooked food (and frankly, so does your gut).

And I'm actually kind of looking forward to being forced to see what I can make in it!
