Last night our microwave oven broke. The carousel rotated okay, but it made a funny sound and would shut off after about 5 seconds. Luckily, the leftover meats were warmed up before it broke.
That got me thinking… how did we survive without microwave ovens?
I think we just ate the leftovers cold. LOL Kentucky Fried Chicken cold – no problem – as long as had a fresh pot of hot rice.
Stew? I think my mom used to reheat the whole pot on the stove.
Truthfully, I don’t remember eating much leftovers growing up. With 4 boys in the family, I don’t think there was ever any leftovers.
But not to worry, we bought a new microwave oven today. I think in this day and age – a microwave oven isn’t a luxury item – it’s a necessity.
Put on your memory caps and share with us – do you remember how you used to reheat leftovers back in the day? Do you think you could live without a microwave oven today? Since we cook our rice in the microwave oven, we surely couldn’t live without a microwave oven.
