Money for Nothing

Okay, so I have less than an hour to post this.  I guess I work better under pressure.  Today’s question is one I have an answer for.  The reason anyone would have a different answer?  I don’t know.  Hopefully it will come to me as I write.

Rob’s question today is… what have you cooked in the microwave the longest?  Luckily, I don’t plan to gross out anyone with this question…by me anyway.  Some people cook ground beef in the microwave.  I swear it’s true.  I can’t be sure why since ground beef takes literally no time to took in the non-disgusting way.  I can’t even go into that anymore. So gross.

I know people make “baked” potatoes in that microwave. That probably takes a while.

The only thing I can think of is when I was a kid and we had a super old microwave. There was a popcorn button but you couldn’t use it.  It took 5 minutes to pop a bag of popcorn.  It also took 5 minutes to microwave Bagel Bites.

One day, that microwave finally left this world and went to microwave heaven…. along with a few bags of popcorn and boxes of bagel bites I tried to microwave for the same amount of time in the new microwave.  It turned out that the popcorn button should be used and 5 minutes was way too long to microwave popcorn in a properly functioning microwave.  I also found that the Bagel Bites could now be microwaved as directed on the box.

I guess the answer to the question is 5 minutes, but that probably is not true.  I’m sure I have had some kind of complex TV dinner that had to be vented, then stirred, recovered, stirred again, remove the plastic… you get what I’m saying.  I can say I have never cooked raw meet or a potato in the microwave though.  Go me? Thanks for reading and let me know in the comments what was for lunch today.
