This past weekend my roommate of the last 3 years moved out. When he came in, he had a newer microwave than mine (which was from the mid 80s and couldn’t cook for shit anyway) and I eventually curbed mine. Now that he’s gone, there is no more microwave in my kitchen, and I’ve decided to keep it that way.
All was fine and dandy until I got ready to cook dinner tonight. Last night I made a box of rice-a-roni and stored the leftovers in the fridge in a ziplock tupperware. Normally I’d just reheat it in the microw…oops. Well, I took out a frying pan, threw some olive oil on there and dumped the remainder in there…10 minutes later and it tastes as good as new.
Have any other dopers had to convert FROM microwave cooking to the old fashioned type? Any tips or anecdotes to share?
Do the stouffers orange boxes come out any better in the oven, so should I keep them off my shopping list for now on?
