ISO suggestions for home cooking during kitchen renovation

CindyJ | Jan 31, 201410:57 AM     55

We're in the middle of a first-floor renovation that includes the kitchen, dining room and two adjacent rooms. The whole first floor of the house floor is virtually unusable. I've set up a makeshift kitchen in one upstairs room. I've got a work/prep area that has a coffee maker, coffee grinder, electric kettle, hot plate/burner, microwave and toaster. I've set up a dining/lounge area in another room. I'd like to do more than heat soup and take-out food, without creating a huge mess or load of dishes and pots and pans that need cleaning. I thought about getting a slow cooker, but I know I'll never use it again after the renovation is finished.

I'd really appreciate some suggestions for easy, delicious meals (dinners) that can be prepared with my limited kitchen equipment and space. Thanks!
