But that was my Mom. And even though I enjoy cooking I'm just not an everyday-from-scratch-cook. With a busy hectic schedule, especially during the week, I rely on frozen or prepared food and a microwave oven. Unfortunately on Sunday, our microwave stopped working. I thought we'd be just fine. But I found that when I would open the cupboards to look for something to make for dinner, there would only be unopened cans and boxes staring blankly back at me. I was a bit bewildered because I couldn't cook or thaw anything that required the use of the microwave. In my mind everything in my freezer was now going to waste and collecting freezer burn. Then there was the moment when I realized that we were not even able to have a favorite treat--microwave popcorn. Oh the perplexity of it all.....!!...
