Exciting news on the kitchen front: my mom got tired of listening to me whine and on her recent visit she bought us a microwave. This is quite thrilling.
No, it really is! See, Don is still in school -- and I'm going back to school, for reasons which currently escape me -- so our evening schedule can be awfully wonky, with classes and commutes and the like. A lot of the time, we simply don't eat -- since we didn't have a microwave, I couldn't make anything warm until he got home (nine PM or later, generally), and we couldn't heat up anything frozen or reheat any leftovers without using the oven. Which, in the heat lately, has not been an option. Plus, believe it or not, tupperware melts. I know, I was shocked too.
So now, I can make dinner when I get home, he can heat it up when he gets home, and if neither of us feels like doing it, we can have Hot Pockets. Or, in his case, Steak'ums. Blech.
