I have been microwave free for over 8 years. It really is not much of a problem. I make my popcorn in a pot, for defrosting I just have to remember to pull it out of the freezer the night before and since TV dinners are pretty much all crap I don't eat them. I also reheat my coffee the same way, it works, don't knock it!

I made these for a large Thanksgiving dinner last year, and they were gone within 10 min., 30 people and 4 dozen eggs were just not enough. One thing I did was only let them sit in the vinegar and beet mixture for about 90 min., so they came out beautiful but without having much beet taste. I also sprinkled lightly with caraway seeds on top.

Borax is also used in Ultra Touch insulation...that is it. Well, except for the cotton. Good one.

Try diatomaus earth for ants also...it essentially makes them into mummy's. Ant mummy's outside are much more attractive then in your cabinets!

I love seeing how many other people have the same "darn it I will just do it" attitude. I unfortunately learned it from my mother. I decided to surprise Mom one day and walked into my parents house to find my Mom trying to wrestle/balance a 6' slider and a huge hole in the kitchen. Needless to say, we had the slider at the Re-Store and the hole framed in by the time my Dad got home.
