Got a new microwave (last one imbued my home with the stench of burnt popcorn every time it was used) at Target on Wednesday. I also looked in Bed Bath and Beyond, but the nicer ones they had were more expensive, even with the 20% coupon. I could have gone to Walmart or Kmart, but my impression from looking at what they had online, the microwaves they had were cheaper, but also much cheaper quality.
What I got was a medium-sized, medium-priced, medium-quality microwave for about $100 - which was the right price for an unemployed architect.
I did not get one that would mount to the wall/cabinet, as that was either too big or more expensive. I think I'll have to install a shelf instead.
It works fine and is a bit smaller than the old one, which is nice.
I already started the "make Casa Ana smell nice again" effort by making Michelle's divine brownies and then sharing them with my friend, Ginger, who's been having a crappy week. I think I may have to make chocolate chip cookies and/or Hungarian goulash again.
