Adventures in Microwave Cookery

Microwave cooking should be relatively easy, right? So why did I have not one, but TWO mishaps this evening?

I was hungry, and I decided I wanted bacon and Malt-O-Meal. Four strips of bacon. One minute per slice, right? After the four minutes, the bacon didn’t look anywhere near done, so I put it in for two more minutes. When the microwave went off, I smelled that awful burned bacon smell. OOPS. I took those slices off of the tray, drained them, gave a couple of small pieces to Fi and Gracie, then crumbled the rest up to use in salads.

While I was preparing four more slices to cook, I put my Malt-O-Meal in the microwave. Now, they only have instructions for how to cook one serving, not for two (which is how many I wanted). So I played it by ear. I’d done it before with no problems, but tonight, the cereal was out of control… and IT BOILED OVER.

Oops again.

BUT, I finally got it right. Cleaned up the boiled-over stuff, got the bacon to where I like it perfectly, dumped way too much sugar on the Malt-O-Meal (as usual) and had a very yummy late dinner.

The End.

P.S. In case you couldn’t tell, I’m not the most skilled at cooking, unless it’s spaghetti. Or dressing. I can also make a mean hot dish or meatloaf. ONION-FREE at that. Okay, going to bed now…..

A Pleasant Surprise

Yesterday, I found out something REALLY COOL.

Aidan’s completely potty trained!

Let me just say.. YAY!! :D

I’d gone out Friday and bought Pull-Ups because I thought he’d still needed them at night. But I found out that he holds in it all night, and waits to go in the morning.

This is great news, ladies and gentlemen!

I haven’t had to change a dirty diaper in months. He’s pooped in the potty for a while now, but he’d been touch and go with peeing. Now he’s got that under control too!

I don’t have to escort Aidan to the bathroom (unless we’re out at a store or something) because he knows how to go himself, flush the toilet, and wash his hands.

The expense of diapers and Pull-Ups? GONE! Now I can buy him loads of cute underwear with fun characters on them! Wheeeee!
