Dang, the thing is only three years old, and its done!  Its the over the range type micro, with the fan.  And about one week after the warranty ran out, the digital numbers quit working.  So for two years, I haven’t been able to read the time on the display.  I guess that its fate that it croaked.  Hubby says that we will just get a new one, since this one seems to be a lemon.  It just frustrates me that it had to happen now.  Grrrrrrrrrr

    • Planned obsolescence (sp?) I have noticed that a lot of things that are new don’t last nearly as long as things that we’ve had for years. I got a juicer for a wedding gift more than 20 years ago and it finally just wore out. I bought an electic can opener recently and it stopped working within a month. Stuff seems to be made cheaper these days.  

      I know it’s frustrating!

    • Hey, thanks for the tips guys!  I’m going to check out Costco.  

      I have to laugh, speaking of old indestructible microwaves.  We had one, or so we thought, until my mother mistook a gourd for a squash and literally BLEW the microwave to pieces!  Hahahah

    • Wow, so proud of you. Do you have the 2-by-4 recipe?

      2 lbs. ground turkey
      2 cans (black label) chili beans-I get the ones with jalapenos in the bottom!
      2 cans rotel (you can pick mild or hot)
      2 cans progresso low sodium minestrone soup

      You cook the turkey, dump the rest in, heat and eat. I eat with low sodium crakers (5=1pt)

      1.5 cups = 4 points. It is so wonderful. Has become a staple in my house.
