Nuking's Not Necessary

Still a To Do List post. Are some of you wondering? Trying to figure out what we're going to blow up?

This is when you take your To Do List and go outside and bomb it. F-it. No one likes having stuff to do all the time, right?

Okay, not really. Sorry to disappoint anyone who thought something awesome would come from this word.


Originally this would be the part on the to do where we talk about cooking. Since I needed it to coincide with N, I made it Nuke. Ya know, like when you cook something in the microwave? Of course, doing that is not cooking. But Nuking something in the microwave is considered 'cooking' sometimes, so I used it as my word in place of cook.

We all have those days when it's been such a long day and your tired. Who wants to cook anything when your tired? Not me. But I have kids and therefore I have to cook all the time. There are some nights when I throw something easy in the microwave, but I prefer to eat for real food. I guess, homemade food is more what I mean.

This is another one of those that doesn't have a simple solution. Find a motivator and use it, whatever will get it done for you. If you have a spouse you need to feed, use that. If you have kids, use them. Find something that makes you say, okay, I have to feed them so I have to cook. Then, just do it. Don't think about how much you don't want to do it or how tired you are. Just get in the kitchen and get it done.

Enlightening, right? Sure it was. :)

Happy Nuking :D

I think all we use the microwave for is reheating.

nuke it, eat it... sometimes it works.

Nice post, making it happen...

We don't cook much via microwave, but it is handy for heating drinks or reheating... plus my kids like microwave s'mores... there is an art to those.

The real beauty of a microwave is eating at WORK. I always have oatmeal (cooked via microwave) for breakfast and leftovers for lunch...

Yep, I agree with Alex. But I sometimes cook omelets in there. ;)

The way I got out of eating out/nuking all my food was I developed a passion for cooking. My S.O. is also very passionate about fun and delicious food creation, and having another person help me cook makes it fun and easy and alluring.

And there are so many easy recipes out there, thanks to the internet!
