Instant Pot Christmas Edition

Instant Pot saved the day during Thanksgiving, and it can do an even better job during Christmas! If you are like me, you have family and friends drop by on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so there’s a lot of cooking going on. Let’s explore some awesome recipes that will make the holidays much brighter:

Once you cut the cord to your cable or satellite tv company, you will want to take full advantage of your freedom. This list is up to date right now, but you’ll want to ask around, and also keep abreast of the latest and greatest free (or almost free) streaming services. I am very wary of questionable sites, so my list is pretty tame.

Sony Crackle – Crackle gets amazing reviews. It allows the viewer to watch high quality tv and movies. It has ads, but they are pretty quick. Check it out.

Vudu – Although Vudu has been known as Walmart’s on-demand movie service, it recently expanded to also offer free content. Here’s a video that explores that free content.

tubi TV – tubi offers a lot for free – once again, you will need to watch their ads, but they are brief. Pretty cool site with no sign-in required.

Hulu (Basic) – Hulu has several subscription plans. One is Live, which includes access to live tv. However, if you are on a budget, or already have other paid subscriptions and just want options, the basic Hulu is pretty darn cool. It is currently only $1.99/month for the first year, then $5.99/month thereafter. Hard to beat.

YouTube – We can’t ever forget the site that started it all. YouTube has a lot of free content – and you just have to watch (or suffer quietly) through their ads. Take another look at YouTube if you haven’t lately. Here’s a video that outlines the top nine free movies.
