I’ve discovered potatoes are easy to cook in the microwave. Ours even has a button specifically for potatoes. Press it and the number of potatoes and start. Voila! Perfectly cooked potato. Works on my yams and sweet potato, too.
I’m purging some of my books. I’ve kept books I liked okay or because they were autographed, three bags full. However, they’re taking up space for books I truly love and want to read again. I also unearthed books that have been in my To-Be-Read pile since the early 90s. Time to read them or let them go.
