Among other (small) things, Chuck got me a toaster oven for my birthday because he knows I love tuna buns. (I believe "tuna buns" = "tuna melts," but I'm not sure. They were just called tuna buns in our house. Also, I grew up calling ramen noodles, "soba" because of the time my parents spent in Japan in the 70s. Scarred for life, I tell you.)
Anyway, we have yet to open the toaster oven because I'm just not sure it's worth it. However, I really dislike microwaves. I feel like we hardly use ours, and therefore it's just wasted counter space. So if I could just swap the two, then I'd be happy. But because I didn't grow up using a toaster oven (again, the scars! the scars!) I don't know that much about them. Does anyone out there have one? If so, how do you use it? Could it replace our microwave? And if we go with the toaster oven, do we need a toaster?
P.S. While we're talking food, any suggestions for lunch boxes? Ones that won't be refrigerated? Ones appropriate for picky kindergartners? (Not that I have one or anything...)
P.P.S. Sorry this is a boring post. Wednesday will be juicy, I promise.
P.P.P.S. Now I have to invent something juicy. Sigh.
