My oven has died and the part is being fitted next week (!), so am on microwave only. HELP!
Not great with the microwave, and don't want to rely on ready meals for the next 8 days. Its a micro only,about 18m old, not a normal oven as well, and is 850W. Have just about managed scrambled eggs on toast for lunch, - what about the next 8 days please, how can i do pasta/meat etc? Recipes and micro instructions/links needed please! TIA
Dont have a microwave but if your weather is as bad as ours how about some baked potatoes with different fillings, cheese and beans are my favourite, or you could try some of those steam fresh vegetables. Failing that have you tried an internet search for some microwave recipies?
Good luck and I hope you get your oven working soon!
Googled to find out how to do scrambled eggs, but i think i'll see if amazon have got a decent m/wave cookery book. If only i was used to reheating ready meals, i'd be ok! Was going to do JO lemon chicken thighs tonight - maybe Jacket Potatoes instead!!
I had the same problem when we had our kitchen re -done.
Jackets v. good. most veggies also v. good in microwave. never really mastered meat 90except bacon - mw's v well) but all types of fish cook very well in mw in a tub with with just a splash of water on and a couple of minutes for an average fillet piece. new covent garden soups good "ready meal" low salt/fat./sugar alternative for mw lunch. Sandwiches and salads galore!
but my favourite mw meal was - get my mum to cook loads of shepherds pies and lasagne's etc that i then just ahd to re-heat in the mw......
Its fixed, hooray! Can highly recommend a book called " classic 1000 microwave recipes" by Sonia allison, bought for £1.95 from amazon marketplace if anyone else find themselves similarly stuck - made a gorgeous honey and black pepper chicken risotto, and a very passable shepherds pie( without the browning bit). Am going to make a big roast chicken tonight to celebrate being able to cook again.
