Day 104 of 365: It's Aliiiive!

Welcome to our home, shiny, new, nuker-of-food!!

About 2-3 weeks ago, our old microwave, inherited from Matt's Nan, had a bit of a mishap. It's last "breath" came in the form of a *POP* and then *fizz* -- complete with flashing blue pyrotechnics display. To say it "went out with a bang" would be an understatement. Since then, instead of being able to have a meal in 5-7 minutes, we've had to oven-bake everything, adding at least 30 minutes onto cooking time.

Then, tonight we got a call from MIL and FIL to say we have a belated wedding gift awaiting us. Matt guesses right away that it MUST be a microwave as it was the one thing he could think of that we really needed. So we picked it up earlier and unveiled it's shimmery greatness.

Happy days meals are here again!!

We do not even have a microwave! In our place in Texas we had one built in above the stove but we always used it as a storage area for bread and stuff! lol The only thing I can think we would use it for is for a faster baked potato but then I love the taste in the oven so much I would never nuke it. :)
