How do you live without a microwave?
This is a serious question. I notice that some posters say they rarely use a mw so this makes me wonder.
I understand that some think there are health concerns but I would like to avoid that issue in this thread. Please just tell me how your kitchen functions without the convenience of a microwave.
My story and questions...
Growing up we did not have a MW until I was a teenager. Before the MW leftovers were always dried out. My mother was always yelling for everyone to get to the table to eat so she didn't have to keep things warm.
So, you pour a full cup of coffee or tea and forget it until it is cold. How do you reheat it?
Our family has people coming and going at all different times. How do you reheat a meal two hours later? or at 2 am?
Leftovers: How to your reheat mashed potatoes? or anything?
Maybe I am just clueless but when DS comes home at 8 pm after working all day I need to give him a fast hot meal. I am "done" in the kitchen and certainly don't want to spend another hour in the kitchen. Again, I would not even know how to reheat some foods on an electric range.
