We haven't had natural gas for the last day. I imagine it has something to do with Uzbekistan's refusal to send natural gas to Kyrgyzstan. Or maybe that's just the way it is right now.
Anyway, since the gas might be off a lot this winter, I'm looking into cooking more with my microwave (yes, I'm lucky enough to have a microwave). I've never really cooked with my microwave, except for oatmeal, so this is rather new.
Does anyone cook much with their microwave? Keep in mind that I almost never cook meat (I'm not really excited about meat here- see the picture below) and that most packaged and prepared foods aren't widely available, or very expensive.
I've found a few ideas on the internet, but most use ingredients I don't have or are geared for one person instead of a family. I think I'll at least be able to do pasta and rice, and I think lentils might work out too.
We'll see how creative I can be this winter.
