Stuck inside

My weekend did not go as planned. We are in no danger from the northern California fire since we live 150 miles away (it would have to jump two rivers and burn down Sacramento before it got to us), but the air quality here is horrendous. It's gotten progressively worse since Friday, so the playoff game on Saturday night was postponed, and our band director canceled the band's performance for the local Veteran's Day parade. We woke up Saturday morning able to smell the smoke in the house with all the windows shut, so we stayed in as much as possible. The high school has today off, too, so we'll do the same again. I cleaned and did laundry instead. This morning at 7am, we had an AQI of 247 which is smack dab in the middle of very unhealthy, but it's eased up quite a bit as the winds have returned in our favor. Currently, we're at 161. Still bad, but at least I can go outside without choking.

And I still haven't found an instant pot side I'm thrilled with. I've tried a wild rice pilaf, a quiche, and a baked beans over the past three days and none of them were a wow. Tonight is a different wild rice dish. That's what I'd really like to do, so fingers crossed it's a winner.
