It definitely is not the same recipe your recipe sounds so much better! 🙂
I know what you mean about bed rest it doesn't happen in this busy world we live in. I know you aren't supposed to use microwaves to cook in but some times you just gotta do what ya gotta do! We also have to be realistic, I use my microwave, I try not to leave things in plastic containers, but I don't think I could survive without my micro. especially for thawing and cooking frozen veggies. I hope you find some time to rest and relax, we all need a little pampering once in awhile, sounds like you need it now.
