NUKED edamame??? EEEEEWWWWW! We went to a sushi restaurant last night - conveyer-belt style in Issaquah. *sigh* It's one of the only times I eat white rice. No one can be perfect 100% of the time! LOL Anyway, we don't normally get edamame because it's SOOO bad for you, but I just had to comment on this. As we're sitting there, the owner is near the back NUKING little bowls of edamame and then putting them on the conveyer belt.
This is a fricking RESTAURANT! Can't they COOK THEIR FOOD properly??? Have restaurants gotten so lazy??? Ugh, I know that seems trivial, but it just royally grossed me out. Why can't they BOIL or STEAM them?
I'm not totally against microwaves... They have a purpose... sometimes. I do try to avoid using it though. It just creeps me out knowing what it does to food and how it heats it.
If we remodel our kitchen though *fingers crossed*, I will hopefully get rid of it completely and replace it with a nice convection oven. However, since there is a microwave in my kitchen now... I use it to heat water or re-heat left-overs. I never use it on fresh food. I know left-overs aren't much different than fresh food, but I'm ok with that. LOL I keep telling myself that somehow makes sense. LOL Can't wait to get a convection/turbo oven. Mercola recommends a counter-top style turbo oven, but I'm hoping to find one that can be installed and not just be another appliance to clutter my counters...
That's all for now!
