cooking an egg in the microwave

19 Mar

i saw this documentary about how corporations rule the food industry and how chickens are over fed and/or pumped up with synthetics so much that they get too big and can’t walk. one of the people interviewed in the documentary wrote a book called ‘The Omnivore’s Dilemma.’ i’ve been thinking about buying it, reading it, and maybe even changing my diet as a result, to do something good for the planet and what not.

but then the other day i was in a hurry and wanted to eat an egg so i cracked one into a bowl and put the bowl in the microwave. big mistake because the egg exploded. i guess i have a long way to go until reaching culinary enlightenment. maybe i’ll hold off on reading ‘The Omnivore’s Dilemma’ and make some peanut butter/banana sandwiches and visit a farm instead; have a look around.

    Perhaps drumsticks are more your style, Steve.

      i like that chicken can be boiled, but i could never turn down the crispiness of fried chicken, unless of course i reset my palate to tofu and went vegan? these are experimental times.

    Well, ELVIS ate peanut butter and banana sandwiches every day, and that’s not what killed him. Just do yourself a favor and lay off the donuts, Steve.

    “Cooking an Egg in The Microwave” is something I enjoyed reading. Since reading the budget proposals of our friendly neighborhood sociopath who lives in the White house, I’ve needed something UPLIFTING to read. This piece did the trick, and for that I thank you, Steven.

      another one of my favorite choices is single cheese slices, mostly because they melt so easily.

        Yeah, but a the slices have to be American Cheese. For a grilled cheese sandwich, anything other than that is blasphemy.

          there seems to be a yellow cheese on the market now as well, shaped and formed exactly like the american slices and they too melt without the help of a toaster or microwave. Remarkable cheese break through.
