As you know, I've long been an advocate of the pressure cooker. Unfortunately, pressure cookers are now viewed with suspicion by the NSA (you go to Hell Dzhokhar Tsarnaev! You go to Hell and you die!). They've been tracking "pressure cooker" searches on the internet, and some people have been questioned about their pressure cooker-related activities. I had a little fantasy about the NSA, and it went something like this:

Two gentlemen dressed in suits on the stoops. "Sir, National Security. We've been tracking your interest in pressure cookers online and we'd like to ask you a few questions."

"Certainly, gentleman. But what a coincidence. I was just getting ready to make chili con carne in my pressure cooker. Do come in." Then I showed them how quick and easy it is to whip up a delicious meal in a pressure cooker. "You can have fresh, home-cooked meals every night!", I said. Then we all sat down to dinner and traded jokes about Edward Snowden. Tom got up from the table and played a few Sondheim favorites on the piano, and we all sang along. We never got to the questions.

When it was time for them to go, we bade them good night, and I gave each of them homemade cookies that I had packed in little brown paper bags. Then they got into their car and said to each other, "That chile con carne was delicious!", and "What charming hosts! A perfect evening!" They returned to their families, kissing their wives and giving the cookies to their children. And all was right with the world.

That's all I want. All I ever wanted, really

Except for that 8-quart Kuhn Rikon.

If I were going to have a fantasy about 2 Security agents showing up at my door, it probably wouldn't include cooking chili and sharing cookies.

Or wait, what kind of cookies?

To my understanding you can search for pressure cookers, but don't include fertilizer with that.

My mom often used a pressure cooker so I don't recall ever having a time without one. They're so useful. Green chili is fantastic made in them, btw. Brown the meat in it, then add the rest of the ingredients and let the cooker go to town.

Btw, using brown paper bags for the cookies is a nice touch. Retro cooking all the way.

Pressure cookers are great to cook with. They can be very explosive. When I was a little girl the lid blew on my mother's--she was cleaning food off the ceiling for hours.

The thing is that once the NSA checks all the pressure cooker purchases, the bad guys will have come up with another plan. :(

Buy a crock pot.. I have never had a dream regarding my crock pot
Most of us have dreams about national security showing up.. ever since they put those people in the airports you know..
Of course they could also be explained if I knew what you were putting in your cookies ..

Nice try but I am not buying you a 8 quart Kuhn Rikon.. The world is already too dangerous.

I used a pressure cooker once. I got one free from the company I worked for. It was an commerical one, they were getting new ones and told the employees yours if you want them ( worked for a spice company). Pea soup, walls, enough said. The was the end of my pressure cooking.

Our neighbor was a fireman for 30 plus years. The only on-the-job injury he ever sustained was at the firehouse. The spaghetti sauce he was cooking in a pressure cooker blew up and burned his chest.
