Thanksgiving with a Barbecue, Rice Cooker, and Slow Cooker

Shortsord | Nov 23, 2008 03:33 PM

My parents are having their kitchen remodeled, and as such do not have the use of the most basic cooking areas - no stove, no range. What we have to work with instead is a grill in the backyard, a nice large crockpot, and a large rice cooker which can also steam.

There is no real commitment on any of our parts to go for only traditional dishes, but at the same time we do want a fairly fall focused meal, and a traditional all out barbecue is definitely not what we have in mind - rule out ribs, corn, burgers, and such.

All I was thinking about at this point is maybe grilling a slab of ham, grilling some vegetables (hoping for someway to makeshift roast squash - wrap in tinfoil?), a hearty soup form the slow cooker, and maybe steaming some potatoes and mashing them, and having some grilled bread and rice something-or-another premade a bit. All in all, I have no real clue whatsoever.

We may get a pressure cooker to use, though not definite, but we will also have a microwave, toaster oven, and george forman grill available. We only need to feed 5.

If anyone has any ideas for how to do any of what I've imagined, or, even better, has some awesome recipes to share that can be made with only these tools, that would be fantastic. Thanks a lot.
