Challenge: Recipes for a Broken Refrigerator

debclark | Aug 29, 201101:10 PM     1

My refrigerator is broken for the third time in two months. It's only two years old and still under warranty so we keep trying to get it fixed. We're facing another week waiting for parts and using the mini fridge my husband usually keeps at work. This makes cooking a bit of a challenge, and I'd love to hear how some of you would deal with it.

What would you make for a family of four that uses few-to-no refrigerated ingredients, takes an hour or less attended time to make, and might leave almost no leftovers (or can be stuffed in a plastic bag in the mini fridge)? We're not picky eaters and are fine with going meatless.

Any suggestions are much appreciated!
