That said, I challenge you to give up your microwave for a week and see how you do. I bet you can do it, especially when you see how easy it really is.
I'll admit it- I used the microwave once every day or so, up through Saturday of this past week. But now, I've been getting along fine without it! It takes me no more time to boil water in my tea kettle or heat my chili on the stove than it did to do it in the microwave. WHAT DID WE DO BEFORE MICROWAVES? (actually...we did a whole lot.)
Take my challenge. I bet you can do it, too!
