Can't they get together and make up their minds?
Brief post so I hope I add all info.
I try to do a variety of healthy foods, I always try to do new meals
I cook 7 days a week for 5, soon to be 6 people (well more like a year and a bit) after working on five of those days and I always have to cook two meals, one vegetarian and one meat because my husband won’t eat vegetarian.
Every night without a fail he asks me to put it in the microwave to heat up later and every night without fail he’ll wake me up 10-11 to heat the food up again knowing full well I’ll usually have to be up in a few hours to feed the baby.
Honestly I’m sick of it so I started buying him microwave meals.
Husband has type 2 diabetes so his sugars have been going a little higher than usual because he shouldn’t be eating unhealthy foods.
We’re obviously in disagreement here, his argument is he stays at home with the children (6mo,5,8) which means he’s tired and sleeps when I get home so he can’t eat but I work also and get home and cook, do my housework and still wake up during the night when the baby does.
My friends are agreeing with him saying it’s difficult to be at home with young children all day and it’s his time to relax.
I don’t know why he doesn’t do his food himself but even then I’m sick of doing a nice meal only to have him ruin it in the microwave.
Hubs has to work up to 12 hour days starting at 4-6 am and I need better things to make for lunch that can be stored in a lunch box/eaten cold or room temp than a turkey sandwich lol we don't eat a lot of dairy and I'm thinking high protein to keep him going in his physically demanding job.
Like seriously. Beep when you touch a number. Beep to make it start. Beep to make it stop. When time runs out it's beeeep beeeeep beeeep beeeep. The worse offenders are the fucking microwaves that continue to beep after you've opened the door!! Shut the fuck up microwave I know my food is done, I'm literally taking out right now. Shut up!!! Just shut the fuck up microwave. I'm so goddamned sick of your loud ass. It's completely unnecessary and quite offensive. Shut up!!! For the love of food everywhere, just shut the fuck up.
I remember being a kid and not being allowed to use the stove but always wanting a grilled cheese. So I decided to get 2 pieces of bread, get 1-2 slices of cheese, put them together on a plate and microwave them. When I took it out, the bread was soggy but soft and the cheese was melted perfectly. Now that I’m older, I made grilled cheeses on the stove and they’re not as good. Bread is dry from no butter or feels greasy from using any amount of butter. The cheese feels doesn’t feel as nice. Microwaved grilled cheese will always be better
I feel like it’s something everyone does unconsciously, without ever being taught to do it.
I've been eating like maybe three mini donuts per day for about three days because I can barely get out of bed. I've been hungry the whole time but like i just don't care that much.
I finally found the energy to microwave something so here goes. I miss warm food. I fucking HATE this disease.
Title. I don't really like cold things in my mouth so I microwave my ice cream. It tastes about the same when melted into something resembling yoghurt so it seems like the obvious solution. Also brain freeze is THE WORST but this way I never get it. Maybe I could just take smaller bites but then my experience of taste is diminished. All things considered, melting it is way better than eating it frozen.
Why YSK: If you’re wondering why your food is always coming out of the microwave rubbery, tough, and otherwise gross, it’s probably because you reheated your food improperly.
The “time cook” and “power level” settings are your best friend. If reheating something that you don’t want to ruin (like a steak, maybe some seafood, etc.) try microwaving for double the time at half the power (50% or power level 5). You can even do lower setting for longer periods of time if you’re being careful. Your food will be much less “microwaved” when it comes out.
If you’re just trying to get something hot really fast (like a cup of coffee), just use the normal setting.
TLDR: Learn to use your power setting on your microwave. This is truly divine knowledge.
I have been wanting to give mug cakes a try since I only own a microwave for now, but I'm worried if it's enough to cook it through. I'm worried about raw/undercooked eggs or flour, I don't want to get ill and then explain to my bf that I got sick for trying to cook in a microwave, lol.
