Oh man, the back to schooling is equal parts “Whew” and “OMG”. On one hand it’s a relief to have a few moments in the day where I am not breaking up fights. On the other hand, we now enter the “Hurry, rush, did you get your homework/lunchbox/project” phase of the year. Add in the gymnastics team practices and Girl/Boy Scouts and it’s enough to make your head spin.


Don’t have kids? No problem. You get to benefit from my mayhem and get a quick healthy dinner in your bod, so errbody wins, see?

So where were we… oh yes, healthy, simple dinner. I made this Instant Pot Paleo Hamburger Soup tonight when I realized that the chaos was about to ensue and that I needed to get my ish together fast.

Just a few minutes of prep and the Instant Pot [3] does the rest, thanks golly. I threw the potatoes in whole so I didn’t have to do any extra work than absolutely necessary and then used a potato masher to break them up after the cooking cycle had completed. Worked like a charm and made for a great thickener for my soup!
