This recipe was obtained while taking a pottery class. The instructor was making these funny dishes on the wheel that looked like a weird candleholder. It is a low dish with a dip kind of dish in the middle. You can use any low microwavable dish and just put a shot glass or similar microwavable circle in the middle.

It was really delicious even though my turntable wasn't working at first. I don't usually 'cook' in the micro just heat and reheat. So as soon as I noticed it I fixed it. You could see where it was already cooked in two spots, but I just let it go and it was okay. This is a good recipe anytime, but especially good for 'on-the-road' meals.
