Hotel Cooking Challenge - two burners, one microwave - ideas?

Scirocco | May 12, 2010 08:57 AM

My friend, Angela, and her husband (and their three cats!) are currently "living" in a hotel until their house closes, so probably another three weeks. All their stuff from their old house is with movers. They are in a nice extended stay type hotel, but she only has two burners and a microwave to work with (no oven or toaster oven). She is a good cook/baker and being pretty creative, but would love more ideas for meals and dessert. She has done pastas, soups, chilis, pan fried/stir fried things, puddings...I assume her pan choices are limited, but probably has the basics (skillet, saucepan, stockpot, glass baking dish). I also assume her spice choices are somewhat limited as she probably doesn't want to fully stock a hotel kitchen!

Any creative ideas out there?


EDIT: just adding a note to say (as I mention down in my reply to rworange) that she is not complaining nor does she feel this is a bad situation, she is just mainly looking for some fun out of the box ideas. :)
