We haven't really gotten the full weight of this latest change because we were away from home this past weekend. But the few days we were home, meals took on a whole new meaning. In general, I made up large batches of food and store them in mason jars. I even make coffee for me in the morning and leave some for *B* in the fridge for him to warm up when he gets home in the afternoon.
So when I went to warm up some frozen baby food and cold oatmeal for Miss F, I stopped in front of the table that used to house the microwave. What was I going to do? That morning, I threw the oatmeal and frozen fruit into a pan with some water and warmed it up. While not as fast as the 2 minute nuke we usually do, it got the job done. I wasn't thrilled with having to clean a new pan now.
This morning, I tried a water bath with the cold oatmeal. I threw a chunk of frozen fruit in the top, submerged the mason jar halfway into water, and set it to boiling. I was impatient this time, and Miss F got lukewarm oatmeal, which she didn't mind.
