We finally have a microwave! Yay! Technically. Its sitting on our kitchen floor 😦
I need this
To go here
I’m seconds away from just plugging it directly into the wall and using it as is. Pretty confident fire would be the outcome of that frustrated action, but I’m about to get desperate. I’ve lived without one for a year and a half and for some reason now I can’t stand a few more days without. Does it look like its smiling at me? Mocking me as I heat my milk in a pan over the stove for somewhere around the 529th day. But who’s counting?
The reason it is still sitting on the floor where is has found a home since we picked it up on Saturday is because the guy who is supposed to install it and do a few minor cabinet adjustments to get it all situated was a no-show yesterday (I’m a fan of the run-on sentence). He didn’t totally flake if you count the fact that he called me at noon to say he was running late (since he was supposed to arrive at 8:30) and I got a text from him around 9pm letting me know he was sorry he hadn’t made it by and we could set something up NEXT WEEK! (again with the run-on)
It’s your world buddy and I’m just livin in it. Or actually I baked in it. I had a lot of work to do and was out and about all morning while I waited on him to call to tell me he was headed my way (which clearly never happened), but spent the afternoon working on the computer and drumming my fingers next to the phone. Until I remembered a yummy recipe from Julie’s blog this weekend and it occurred to me that one surefire way to make an irritating day better (besides yoga which was out since I had to stay by the phone) was cupcake/muffins. Both the baking and the eating is cathartic.
I made a few revisions based on what I had in-house and they turned out awesome. I replaced the oil with applesauce, the wheat flour with oat, and the skim milk with unsweetened almond milk. I immediately ate two and stored the rest for consumption at a later date.
Blueberry Craisin Muffins (revised from Cranberry Orange Muffins)
1 box 18 oz. reduced sugar yellow cake mix
2 tbsp. oat flour
Egg white equivalent of 3 eggs (I used Better’n Eggs All Whites)
2/3 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/3 c. unsweetened berry applesauce
1 1/2 c. dried cranberries (I used blueberry Craisins)
1/4c diet sprite (needed moisture and its all I had that was citrusy. The original recipe used fresh squeezed orange juice)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix everything together, stirring in the dried cranberries last. Spoon batter into muffin tin lined with muffin cups. Bake for approximately 18 minutes
