Copying the Recipe: Sample 2

Wallet Stew

Megan, a single woman living in Spokane, Wash., thought she was shrewd to hide her wallet in the microwave. After all, she reasoned, it’s one of the last places a burglar would look for valuables.

The plan worked well enough to fool even her. She had forgotten all about the wallet when she placed a bowl of leftover stew in the microwave later that evening. After the oven cooked for three minutes on high, she retrieved a piping hot bowl of stew -- and a steaming, withered wallet. The contents, including Marjorie’s driver’s license, credit cards and family photos, were a melted mass of plastic and paper.

She stashes her new wallet in the refrigerator. She likes it raw, not well-done.
