Microwave oven conversion charts

I went all out tonight. We had microwave TV dinners for supper! It's just too hot to cook and going out to eat is getting too pricey. So we hit Wal-Mart and picked up a pile of those $2.50 Marie Calander's TV dinners. We've had them before and they are pretty decent. I had the fried chicken with mashed taters & gravy (). David picked up a couple of Hungry Man dinners but he wasn't too happy with his dinner tonight. It cost more to buy the dinners but we have been paying $21 and change for two chinese buffet dinners (they have seafood). I bought a weeks worth of dinners (and a few $1 lunches) for around $47.

When I went to cook my dinner, I discovered the directions were for a 1100 watt micro. My micro is 1000W. Had to relocate the conversion charts (left mine with my daughter). So if any of you need a conversion chart for any reason (old micro recipes cooked at lower temps, etc), this is a good site. I like to copy and print out a hard copy. Double check the times. I know we caught a typo in the "1100 watt to 1000 watt" chart (minutes were off for one time). Also the recipes on this site are decent. It is to sell a recipe book. So you can expect that the recipes on the site are mostly "teasers" for the book. But lots of good info on micro cooking.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.
