How-To Get a New Microwave - A Step-by-Step Tutorial

Alternately could be titled "How-To Never Have to Cook for your Family Again

  1. Take chicken out of freezer
  2. Neglect to see the twist tie on the bag
  3. Don't worry about BPA and put said bag in the microwave
  4. Set it for 10 minutes on time defrost
  5. Sit down and spend some time on Facebook/blogging/email etc...
  6. Smell something funny, but ignore it, cause it is probably nothing
  7. Have amazing peripheral vision that you see something orange out of the corner of your eye
  8. Jump up screaming "oh my goodness...what happened??" even if it is only the 3 year old in the house
  9. DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR cause you learned in school that oxygen feeds the fire (I knew that money would be worth spending;-)
  10. Open door when flame is out and take a picture of the burned chicken and the twist tie that caused it all
  11. Tell hubby that microwave is broken so that he can see for himself
  12. Watch it start to flame again
  13. GET NEW MICROWAVE!!
It was even stuck to the plate...


See the twist tie? 

So, there you have it.  A step-by-step guide to getting a new microwave.  We figured we may as well get the one we have wanted for quite some time so are going with an over the range microwave.  I put a question on Facebook about installing it and how easy that was...cause we really aren't that handy, and a friend called to say she has one, in the box still, sitting in her garage, on it's way to Goodwill!!

We are so blessed!!

Stay tuned for my next How-To (Get Out of Doing Laundry)
