One day you find yourself searching for something to make for dinner and the next thing you know you're whipping up some one-dish quick-fix meal that requires fish, condiments, ginger, snow pees, mushrooms and grated carrots...and a microwave oven.
You once thought microwaves were for losers. At one time not so long ago, you hardly ever used your stove, save for storing plates and other unused items.
There was a time you never took short cuts. Never fell asleep at 9:00. A time when you went out more than you stayed in.
Then you had two kids, credit card debt, New York City preschool tuition and Television became your friend. Next thing you know, you are cooking a recipe found on the Internet which calls for 6 minutes of high-powered nuking and a bunch of that brown sauce Chinese restaurants use for Moo Shui Pork.
And the worst part is: you like it.
