We were gathering information on a possible new fishing boat at Bass Pro. Something for the guy that works hard every day and rarely buys anything for himself. The guy that brown bags a lunch daily. Terms like fishing platform, v-hull, carpeting vs non-skid, 25 hp vs 40 hp were tossed around and about as we toured the available models with our salesguy.
My only question – will this make you happy and will this be your forever fishing boat?
I wandering into the main store. This year we have been sampling and collecting different mustard. Amazing the types and flavors that are available. Bass Pro has a gift/food section in their stores. A decent selection of celebrity (Duck Commander, Pioneer Woman) items and a good selection of hot sauces!
While browsing the Bass Pro clerk asked if I need any help? Mustard? From the other side of the display a lady spoke up and began her tales of cooking with mustard and her pressure cooker. She uses the A&W barbecue sauce and mustard in her meatloaf – which she cooks in the pressure cooker. She went into great detail – marinating overnight, sauces she uses, cooking times, added ingredients, and the very small amounts of leftovers from her family of five. She can cook a meatloaf in 25 minutes! I listened as she sold the benefits of the pressure cooker, the time savings her meal planning. Her pressure cooker is electric, she can set and forget – she was a wonderful salesperson of pressure cookers. She offered her model number and maker, where she had purchased her (Target or Walmart) and suggested I buy one.
The clerk added how she loves meatloaf sandwiches and the husband agreed, one of his favorites. I hadn’t even realized he was beside me. We left with 2 bottles of mustard, A&W BBQ sauce and the promise to try meatloaf in the pressure cooker!
Driving home I had grand idea’s to make this meatloaf for about 10 minutes. We used the BBQ sauce on the grilled chicken. It was ok, not spectacular, not terrible. I still don’t understand how a meatloaf would cook in a pressure cooker and honestly it is not one of my favorites but was wondering after the meatloaf in the shape of fruitcake … was this a sign?
