HELP -- Cooking Special Romantic Dinner with NO OVEN

at203 | Mar 12, 2003 12:01 PM

OK, Chowhounds, please help.

I'm cooking a special dinner for my boyfriend on Saturday, but my oven broke, and the only landlord-sanctioned oven guy is on vacation until Friday. The burners work, but the oven and broiler won't. I also have use of a small toaster oven.

I know that I will do fine with hors d'ouevres and a pasta dish, but what should I do for a main course? I'm not a regular chef -- definitely a restaurant goer -- so I'm at a loss for where to begin for pan-fried, pot-boiled whatevers... anyone have any favorites they care to share? (Also, can't be seafood except fish, can't be lamb, rabbit or pork -- not my restrictions).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
