    Default Microwaving Turkeys

    Is there any reason to own anything but a very small microwave? I know there are cookbooks from the '80s telling you how to microwave a Thanksgiving turkey, but why would you want to? I need to buy one.. and I can't think of a reason not to get a cheap small one.

    Or instead of advice, just tell me what the biggest thing you've put in a microwave is.

    I can't remember anything particularly large.

    But, as long as your thinking about what not to get... avoid getting a microwave with a grill rack. I've used a microwave with a grill rack for 2 years and had to remove and replace the damn thing every time i microwave something in one of my taller bowls or clean. I have never used it once and I only just thought to go ahead and throw it under the oven for good.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Eew! The only meat that tastes good from being cooked in the microwave is poached fish. Even scrambled eggs taste ick.

    Maybe the question should be, do you plan to entertain? If so, what's the maximum number of people and is there anything like frozen veggies that you might be serving?

    Ahh, good point, frozen veggies.. large portions of stuff cooked beforehand for company. Not sure why I didn't think of the obvious, it's been a long time since I've entertained, I guess I was trying to think of why I would ever want to microwave 16 Hot Pockets.

    Microwaved bacon. That can't be bad, right?

    Just use the already cooked bacon. The only good thing to cook in a microwave is the 5 minute chocolate cake in a mug.



    Chocolate cake in a mug

    4 tbsp of self-raising flour
    4 tbsp of sugar (I used light brown)
    2 tbsp cocoa
    1 egg
    3 tbsp milk
    3 tbsp oil
    Anything you want to add!

    Place all in the dry ingredients in a mug (or a jug and then pour it into the mug once you’re ready to cook it) and mix to combine. Add the wet ingredients and mix well, making sure there are no little pockets of flour.

    Microwave for 2.5 to 3 minutes* until it has risen and springs back to the touch**

    Posh Chocolate cake in a mug

    50g dark chocolate
    3 tbsp butter
    4 tbsp self-raising flour
    3 tbsp sugar (again, I used light brown)
    1 egg
    3 tbsp milk

    Melt the chocolate and butter together (you might as well use the microwave) and stir to combine. Mix all of the ingredients together (mug or jug, it’s up to you) and cook in the microwave for 2.5 to 3 minutes***.



    * Bear in mind that microwaves vary so this is just a guide. Most of the recipes state 3 minutes but 2.5 was fine in mine. Plus…

    ** …they will carry on cooking in the mug so don’t cook them for too long. Also, beware, these things are hot. I burnt my tongue on the cake (more than once but I have zero patience when it comes to chocolate cake) so watch any little people that might be joining you.

    *** Again watch the time. I zapped mine for 2.5 minutes and found a lovely pool of liquid chocolaty cake mix at the bottom. I love it but I know it’s not to everyone’s taste.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I don't eat it. I don't really like chocolate much but my ENFJ...he likes his chocolate and this way I don't have an entire cake sitting around to tempt him.
