Clean that yucky microwave!

How sad is it when you can get so excited for an easy way to clean the microwave. Has everyone known about this and failed to tell me? I had heard of a Mr. Clean product several years ago that supposedly worked wonders. I've been looking at all the local stores for one, couldn't find it, so resorted to the internet for research. I tried one that looked simple enough and would you believe it worked!?

Here goes:
Put about 2 cups of water in a pyrex measuring cup or something similar. Add about 2 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice. Put in the microwave and nuke for 2 -3 minutes. Wipe clean with paper towels. The steam created makes the ick come off the top, sides and bottom of the microwave a cinch. The juice makes it smell so clean! I did have to take the tray out and wash in the sink, but the other was clean in literally 2 minutes! Whew! It was so easy. Maybe now I won't have butter/margarine stalagtites on the ceiling of my microwave anymore! Plus for all you "greenies" out there, no chemicals were used or harmed in the cleaning of this microwave!

I can't remember who asked.....

Someone asked me if there was a picture of the vampire snowmen Grace and Lindsay made at Christmas.....

I'll divert for a second. You spend their whole childhoods protecting them from Satanic things like He-Man, The Halloween movies, Freddie Kruger and the like...then they grow up and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE books about vampires. Go figure. At least they are adults who love Jesus and can put scripture before these novels. I guess that counts for something.

Now I digress. Here are the cookies.....yes we made pictures of them. I didn't post them earlier out of shame and horror that my sweet babies would do such a thing! Apparently someone is interested.
