Sure , once upon a time they were helpful to the family. Now it seems the “cooking” method of choice. Nothing says I care about feeding my friends and family like standing around a microbox. Really brings everyone together.
The boxes have bake potato and pop corn buttons. They are wrong in the “cook” time (I tried to use it a few times-Fail) and if one was to read the ingredient list on a bag of nuke pop corn? Only a scientist would know what the hell that shit might be. Hell, the USDA is kind of iffy on waved food like stuff.
It takes less time from start to finish to make lasagna from scratch than a frozen stuffybrand.
In all truth, I carry a one dollar bill and two dollars in change. That is it. The debit card is stashed away. My credit union acct is paperless so no checks. I keep a credit card for emergency use hidden away.
I just don’t spend money willy nilly. That is prolly part of being a Chef. Know where you money is going and how long till you get it back.
Sadly, another local restaurant went away because they didn’t know how to keep the books. Happens every day across the world. There is no such make it and they will come as a rule. Sigh
If you find yourself in the Austin, Texas Metro you MUST eat here. You’ll thank me (and John) later
