one of my goals in January is to look harder at my meal planning and budgeting, and see if I can find some "go to" meals that are both inexpensive and low-carb.

Last year I shelled out $250 for a pressure cooker. I haven't bought steak since then, especially since they told me on Top Chef that real chefs turn up their noses at things like tenderloin.

Instead you buy chuck roast or something for $3-4/lb, maybe less. No need for recipes, just throw stuff into the pressure cooker and you have some really tasty food in an hour or so. The left overs re-heat nicely.

My one regret is not getting the $400 model.
