hot pockets, here i come

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.

microwaves and microwave ovens are the best inventions for kitchen appliances ever! :-)

In my kitchen is the microwave my parents gave me when I moved out -- it was their first microwave EVER and if memory serves, they bought it in the mid to late eighties. The thing is like twenty years old!

(I've set it on fire, too).

PS - Hot Pockets taste much better after being through the oven.

I'm digging the new Lean Cuisine paninis... they actually get grill marks in the microwave. and they're quite tasty! :-)
