I think it is only fair.

After I banished the kids from their toys this morning, I set about doing other cool AtHomeDaddy stuff. I started some laundry, I started a load of dishes and I decided to tackle the annual scrubbing of the microwave.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwww. Yuck!
It took me almost half an hour and the thing still isn't spotless. After I gave up, I scrubbed the top of the stove. It could use a little more elbow grease (or sandblasting) on those stubborn stains, too.

Seeing that I cook a meal or two around here, and that microwave and stove top were that nasty, I think I should punish myself by not allowing myself in the kitchen for a while.

Totally! In fact, I think you should be banished to the garage for like, three or four hours!

Sounds fair!

Once on a visit to an Aunt's house, I was appalled at the state of her microwave. I didn't own one at the time but vowed if I ever had one, it would never look like that. The best way to avoid such a state of affairs is to buy a plate cover. They are fairly cheap and one can be bought at wally world. Of course they don't work if you don't use them so to insure this, mine stays permanently in the microwave except when it is being washed, dried and returned to said microwave. Use of this device insures that the food splatters on the cover and not all over the microwave. One only has to clean cooked on, splattered food from numerous reheatings to learn to use this little device.
