Flog It Blog It, When Two Is A Crowd!


Molly The Wally Does Some Cooking!

Today a funny Cook Book Review on tasty Tuesday .....Microwave Cooking for One (Paperback)




The Gift That Keeps Giving, By Now Ms Independent.

It happened at a Christmas Eve party that one of my friends was throwing. In the middle of our merriment and much feasting on her homemade delicacies, we had a white elephant gift exchange. After dodging a weird banana slicer and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble (I mean, what even is that? It sounds like a cheap law firm), I ended up with a small rectangular box. I opened it and shrugged at the title that was printed on the book: "Microwave Cooking for One". My ex-boyfriend that was across the circle jeered as he wrapped his arms around his new Korean girlfriend, who was wearing the completely wrong shade of lipstick, as she clutched onto the handmade Amish bonnet she had unwrapped. What she really needed was a new face, but hopefully the bonnet could at least attempt to hide her current one. The rest of the night was spent drinking and staying a safe distance from the mistletoe and the karaoke machine. When I left the next morning (apparently I wasn't in the condition to drive home), I nearly forgot to take my book - and what a shame that would have been.
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.

  17. Wow, this is hysterical! Gosh, too bad for the dogs who have owners with this book....they'll never get a walk! AND worse yet, no leftovers. I mean, you can't microwave for one and expect scraps for the pooch. Oh, this is horrible! I'd chew that book up fast!

  19. Dear Molly,
    I'm really happy, that I need no cooking to get my food, so we don't need such a book, for my humans that eat cooked meals are more than only one. So we are safe!
    Love
