My end of summer is not as poetic as Des'.
What is missing from this picture?
I am not cooking like Pioneer Woman, I AM pioneer woman. I had no idea how often I use my microwave.
"Let's have chicken for dinner. It's frozen." "How about flautas? "Sausage.... tacos..... hamburgers..... meat....Frozen." "Cocoa. Takes too long to heat water on the stove." "I'm going to make popcorn. Nope." "Can I make cookies?" Sure, go put the butter in the sun for a couple of hours. The kids take turns cooking & of course, it didn't dawn on them or me that we still can't defrost. Guess what we're having tonight? Eggs. The perfect food. Luckily, we bought bacon & it's still in the fridge.
My husband went to buy a microwave at Home Depot. "What? They don't have them, you have to order one?" "What!?" So we've been cooking over a flame (gas stove) for three weeks. The new microwave was delivered today. It's a beauty, but husband is out of town and I just don't see me installing it as much as I would like to. I just tried lifting it ------- don't hold your breath.
