Quick and Easy Meals to Make In The Microwave

College dining halls have good days and bad days. You either leave feeling satisfied and full or with less of an appetite and emptier stomach. If you have personal access to a microwave you should definitely check out some of these recipes to balance out your visits to the dining hall and avoid spending too much money on food. Here are some of my favorite meals that are microwave friendly.
