Never Done Before: Living without a Microwave

Living without a microwave and lessons in slowing down:

·      Shortly after settling into new dorm realized we didn’t have a microwave
·      Have been only using the stove to cook things for 4 days
·      Reminded me vaguely of being a 1950s housewife
·      At first, kind of annoyed: couldn’t even make hot chocolate without having to heat up the milk in a pot first
·      After a while though, started to enjoy it
·      Forced me to slow down and spend time in the process of making food
·      Spent more time contemplating the food I was about to eat, and was to become a part of me
·      Learned that mindfulness of cooking makes the meal more enjoyable – appreciation
