Today a funny Cook Book Review on tasty Tuesday .....Microwave Cooking for One (Paperback)
The Gift That Keeps Giving,
Over the next few days, I avoided the book. Calling for pizza or Chinese takeout was just better. I mean, the Chinese takeout boy was kind of cute - but then that fateful Tuesday happened. My account was in the red.
What was I going to eat? Was I going to starve?
The answer, my fellow Amazon users, is that I did not. Somehow I remembered the book: "Microwave Cooking for One". I flipped it open and made my first gourmet microwaved meal - Eggs Florentine. I don't know what the hell Florentine means, but it was amazing and as I was eating, I came to the amazing conclusion that, yes, I could make dinners for one. I didn't have to waste my time at parties and dinners with friends or trying to find a man that would treat me to dinner or maybe even offer to split popcorn at the movie theatre. I could be independent! I only needed myself, a microwave and this miracle book. I was suddenly a new woman.
Soon I was quitting my job, deciding to work from home and only needing to leave when I needed more supplies for these 5 star recipes. I even started a blog about the joys of indoors and how microwaves aren't harmful to your reproductive organs.
Besides even if they are, hey, what do I care? This book is the only baby I need.
I even got a Netflix account and started watching all the shows that I would have been too embarrassed to watch before - like Sister Wives and Extreme Couponing and Animal Hoarders. Not only did this product help me cook for one, but it helped me come to terms with who that "one" was.
Thank you, "Microwave Cooking for One". It has been about four months now and I couldn't be happier. Without you, I might still be going out and wasting money on drinks with friends or spending time with someone who wouldn't enjoy my microwaved Peach Soufflé or having to use the phone to get food or, god forbid, worrying about things like makeup and personal hygiene. This product has truly changed my life.
Have a tasty Tuesday everybody.
