Thankful Sunday, January 22, 2017

I am thankful for my microwave.

Our new house has a microwave installed over the stove. While it works, it is original to the house and was built in 1989. It has no turntable and only 600 watts--not very powerful by today's standards.

We had not moved the microwave from the old house because I used it in staging to show how it would fit in one of the cabinets and not take up any counter space. Yesterday we moved it and I had my first decent bag of popcorn since we moved. It turns out that 600 watts only pops about half of the kernels no matter how long you cook them. Someday, we will replace the one over the stove. In the meantime, we have our more powerful one, and for that I am thankful.
