We’ve been using a microwave.
For those who have managed to not catch on that we’re crazy health-nut weirdo’s, this falls into that category. A couple years ago we got rid of our microwave for a myriad of reasons that I’m not in the mood to propagate at the moment. It’s like most any new endeavor, at first it was annoying but it just became normal & we didn’t really think much of it.
With moving to Orlando & knowing our schedules will be crazier balancing family, school, work, church ect. I knew something in the food department was going to have to give. So for the past 6mo i’ve been internally deliberating what would be compromised. It was a surprisingly difficult decision….one that will probably have to be re-evaluated from time to time. Most difficult was that a lot of things I do (like mill wheat & make bread) are because I don’t want to compromise on health, but also we can’t spend the money on the quality of bread that I would prefer to buy. So I make my own. Thankfully, I really enjoy it as well.
Anyhow, I finally decided to come back to modern society & utelize the microwave. However, there are rules. Only for leftovers. This sounds like not much, but consider the time & dishes used to re-heat food outside of the microwave. Trust me, it’s significant. And ashamedly, i’ve been loving every micro-second.
I also haven’t been making yogurt. This is honestly primarily b/c i really do NOT like making yogurt. But it really does save a LOT of money to make your own, esp. when you go through 3-4 qt’s a week. Ugh. We’ll see.
So it’s out. We use a microwave.
