Cooking A Meal
In microwave cooking, dishes are cooked one at a time, set aside, then popped back into the oven individually just before serving until piping hot. I have found that cooking dishes in a particular order gets the best results. I cook starchy vegetables first, green or yellow vegetables second, and meat, fish or poultry last. To refer back to recipes I cook as a meal, I use a set of bookmarks labeled:
- Starchy Vegetable (potatoes, noodles or rice)
- Green Vegetable
- Meat, Fish or Chicken
You can make your own set of bookmarks and use them for ready reference to flip back and forth between recipes. Or you can print the PDF of a set of bookmarks below on card-stock paper. Be sure to select "Actual Size" instead of "Fit" before pressing the print button.
If you are using a mobile device that will not allow you to scroll the pdf, you can view the PDF of the Bookmarks directly.
