I understand that this may seem incredible but no microwave was used in the production of this amazing meal! Yes, there was bacon!!!

Jeez of course no microwave! First thing I did when I got my boat was to ditch the microwave overboard (ok not overboard but removed it for god sake).

Microwaves are for heating a cup of water for tea/instant coffee or for a factory-made meal needing reheating. Microwaves hardly count as cooking in my book.

I've been thinking about getting rid of my stove /oven. Used it twice in 3 years. If it can't be nuked, grilled, or cooked in a crock pot, it probably takes more effort to prepare than it's worth.

My wife says, "if it takes more than 20 minutes, turn up the heat and stir it faster".

The most important thing is on 5th pic. Without this primary ingredient there is no hope for a good diner

A cooktop and a convection microwave might be a good combination. We have an LPG stove with oven, we do use the oven, plus a conventional microwave. I`ve used the microwave to reheat a slow cooked home made casserole, it doesn`t have to be a factory product.
Right on about the essentials in pic 5, and it`s not the butter cookies, tasty as they may be.

Microwave popcorn is the pits. Better to use a stove top with some oil and corn in a pot, then dumped in a paper bag, adding salt and melted butter coming from leftover heat from the pot.

Ok. So Bruce wants the meal described.

First, really basic but excellent quality stabler chicken breasts on the grill. No fuss no frillz. Perfectly grilled by Hiz Highness.

Second, a big tangle of zucchini noodles from zucc's straight from a fellow AT owner's garden. Sautťed onions in a glug of olive oil, addd some grape tomatoes, then about five cloves of garlic, chopped. Then added the zucchini noodles and and a big 'ol pile of baby spinach. Tossed in a big handful of fresh chopped basil and mint. Then salt & pepper. Finished with a big pile of Bulgarian sheep's milk feta and some delicious crumbled bacon.

Third, pour red wine.

Fourth, eat.

Fifth, eat a box of butter cookies.

Sincerely think the red wine deserves more than a single line in the recipe. How come a zucchini can be mentioned 3 times but the red wine only once. Looks like a real unbalanced recipe lol

Okay, nobody has asked. In frame 3 there appears to be a animal of some sort.
I get chicken breast but I don't get what is on frame 3 aluminum foil.

By the way, It was thought that a micro wave was a necessity on our boat. It is, I store bread in it!!! Should dump it as we don't use as intended.

My bride loves leftovers.

Cook once, eat for a couple of days.

The radar oven allows re heating with little effort, perfect!

In the past living aboard the Dickinson oven was hot for 4-6 months , so baking was reserved for cold weather.

I love cooking on my boat. After a new stove and fridge, a new micro/convection will replace the old micro only. I wanna bake cookies and stuff! LOL!

There's some really good microwave popcorn available, you just have to look for it. Just get the "natural" stuff with no flavorings and low/no sodium... season to taste. Even Food Lion has it.

Our boat had a full sized kitchen on it (that is, all normal home appliances). as we loved to cook and Ann is an excellent chef. Most cooking done on the stove top, conventional oven and gas grill. The microwave got used for her morning tea water, popcorn, some vegetable dishes and re-heating leftovers. Not an optional item for the likes of us.
