Now you all think that Viveka are getting down and dirty – naught, naught !!!! It’s adult toys – but not of that kind … wishfully thinking, folks.
… one I got from my friends in Victoria when visiting them – saw one of the top chef’s on the TV using one and I was smitten by it, an egg poacher for the microwave. He created the most stunning breakfast with everything out of a microwave, so I had to have one.
While I was shopping for bags and dresses, my friend had phoned his wife and asked where to find one – at London Drugstore, for a price of CAN$3.95 – so he bought one and gave to me. Haven’t used until last week when it was time for grilled bacon, Heinz beans, boiled potatoes and all topped with a poached egg. One of my favorite meals.
It took a couple of trails before I got it perfect for my taste – 50 sec is all that I need using my micro. No more messing around with salt, vinegar and slow boiling water. Love it.When I visit my friend Margurithe – she used her Tupperware omelette micro form – what a tool. So she put the form in my bag – she where going to a Tupperware party in the evening as I left in the afternoon. I’m useless on doing omelettes – in a pan on the stove – in the oven they comes out great every time.
So the Tupperware form I used the other evening – had laundry afternoon – and that means I will not eat before 8pm – so a omelette and a little salad – something quick and painless. A great opportunity to use the form. I just put in some defrosted vegetable mix, soft fried diced bacon and onion. I put the grated cheese and season in with the egg and milk mixture; 4 eggs and 2tbsp milk, sprinkled with some of Findus frozen Italian herb mix. And 5 mins later – Voila!!! Magic had happen.
So me as woman – not much into Ipad and Iphone – I’m very contempt with my two plastic toys, sometime we women are very simple creatures. I bet they both been on the market for years – but for me they are new and still fun to play with. *smile
