I am accustomed to cooking three meals a day at home. Now they are retiling our kitchen, etc, (600 sq. ft.) and everything has gotten moved out, all the furniture, appliances, etc. The short of it is that our range is gone and our big fridge is out in the living room but at least running. We do have a couple of microwaves and a couple of crock pots but for some reason my creativity is waning. I was thinking of picking up a cheap toaster oven to get us through but don't know if that would be worth it, or possibly look for one of those conduction gizmos you use on a countertop though again I wouldn't want to spend too much on it since we really won't need it much in the future. Eating out gets old pretty quickly as does reheating takeout in the microwave. Any good suggestions on what you would do to make the best of this situation. Btw, I do have a gas grill and a smoker but right now it is snowing lightly and the wind chill is in the 20's and dropping. Thanks much.
