Martha Stewart Learning Microwave Cooking In Prison
(NEW YORK, October 21st, 2004, 12:30 p.m.) -- Martha Stewart's lawyer says his client is using her prison time to learn innovative ways of microwave cooking, and is being treated well by inmates and staff.
Lawyer Walter Dellinger tells N-B-C that Stewart is making the best of a tough situation.
Because inmates can only use a microwave to do their own cooking, Stewart is working to come up with creative recipes based on the ingredients available at the prison.
Other inmates have been quoted in newspapers saying that Stewart has picked crabapples from trees on prison grounds.
Dellinger says Stewart is also spending about three hours a night on a typewriter.
Stewart is in the first month of a five-month sentence at a federal women's prison in Alderson, West Virginia.
