The only thing I ever use a microwave for is for reheating food. Maybe a fresh corn on the cob, but mostly for fast reheating of whatever SM wants for a meal.
The microwave in our house was slowly fritzing out. It had to be 20 years old at least. Last week the handle came loose and SM started looking to replace it. For some reason he thinks that I care about these sorts of things...but I really don't. If it works and it's a good price then lets do it.
So he went shopping and found a replacement this weekend and we installed the new microwave yesterday.
I was the brains, SM the brawn. As usual.
Ginny could care less.
And it's in.
It's HUGE!!!! SM assured me that all the microwaves were the same size at the store. When did this happen?
"A turkey could fit in that thing!" I said, astonished.
"Some people just might cook whole meals in there." SM agreed.
I just shook my head and wandered away. SM heated up some frozen leftover enchiladas that I'd stuck in the fridge a few months ago and reports that the sucker works great.
It's weird. I know I'll always cook in a traditional manner and SM uses the microwave daily (only to reheat things) but is it possible that there is a whole world of cooking going on out there using only a microwave that I don't know about?
How do you use yours? I know that there's a lot of controversy out there over microwaves, but I've used them my whole life. Can't really imagine not having one, it's so convenient.
