Becoming acquainted with my microwave

Now that we are starting to update our kitchen it has made me think back to when we first moved into our home and replaced the kitchen.  Between moving in, ordering the kitchen and the work being completed it took around 8 weeks of having virtually nowhere to prepare or cook food.

The first week or so was lovely as it was a great way to try out the local takeaway spots however there is only so much takeaway that you can eat (trust me you’ll be begging for a home cooked meal after a period of takeaways night after night).  With no cooker available I resorted to becoming acquainted with my microwave and found that there is in fact so much more you can do with your microwave than just heat up baked beans.

From making tasty breakfasts, fabulous dinners and even a delicious dessert or two.  Now of course I would be lost without my microwave (it actually cooks cakes better than my oven! and in a faction of the time), it’s used at least once a day for a whole host of things and not just heating up baked beans.

Which appliance would you be lost without?

    I usually only use the microwave to heat up leftovers but I’m learning lots of new things to use it for. I would be totally lost without my washing machine though.. 🙂
