Instant Pot Cranberry French Toast

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Do you have plans? My son and I are spending the holiday together. After talking to a great friend, I explained to her that I was thinking of ordering a “pre-made holiday meal” from a local grocery store. She convinced me that I should do it! So, I ordered a vegan Thanksgiving meal that feeds two people. There is so much food included and with my son being such a picky eater, I know there will be plenty of leftover food for at least a week! Since I have an Instant Pot, I love making delicious meals and such for us. I recently made Instant Pot Cranberry French Toast and it was a hit! This makes an awesome breakfast, especially with those cranberries you may on hand!

This summer, I learned to balance my time between housework, blog, social media, and fitness. There were times when I recognized that my son needed to get out, we both did, so I would go for a walk. I made it an adventure for him. We walk by 3 playgrounds on our walk, depending on the distance. Many times, we only went by 2 playgrounds. Regardless, he’d play on each of them for about 5-10 minutes!  We usually went for a walk in the morning before it would get too hot and the playgrounds were empty!
