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.
