I finally got ahold of someone at Best Buy, and almost had to be resuscitated when they told me how much they charge to install a microwave. The installation would cost more than the appliance itself! I have decided that I’m in this for the long haul, and will watch sales, and any deals on installation, and if takes me months, (or longer), to find a microwave I really like, at a price that doesn’t make me sick, than I’m OK with that.
Leftover turkey soup for dinner. Easy enough to heat on the stove top–that is where it was cooked to begin with, after all. It did start out a little on the frozen side, which is the real down side to not having a microwave right now–no defrost setting.
We tried our luck at making popcorn in a kettle tonight. It actually turned out really well. There’s a bit of a learning curve involved, but it tasted good, and didn’t burn, which is always a problem with the microwave variety. And a bonus: it was really fun to watch!
