What Do I Cook When The Kitchen is Gutted?



I forgot to ask you. Chad (with the help of some friends) has the kitchen almost ripped out. Ignore the table stacked with wood that I set up so I could see about where an island could go. So we’ll have a grill, microwave and an electric griddle. Along with a fridge. Washing stuff will be a pain so I want to make things that are easy to clean up. I’m sitting here getting ready to plan meals for three hungry, hockey playing boys next week and a husband and myself. Tell me, what’s your best advice for cooking when you don’t have a kitchen? What was your go to meal?


  1. Pot Roast

  2. Pot Roast, Carrots & Potato in the CrockPot, then if there is leftovers you can make hash to have with eggs on the skillet.
    BLT sandwiches, CEREAL :-), Chicken, Stuffing in the crockpot with a little milk and cream soup over the top in the crock pot, Chili, Panini’s, Baked potato’s are delicious in the crock pot! add cheese, brocolli bacon bits…etc… Taco Salad, English Muffin Pizzas, Chicken Tenders in the toaster oven, plain, add to wraps…… Just trying to remember how it was when we did our kitchen. I was washing bottles and sippy cups in the tub. :-)

    Finding Joy In My Kitchen blog has lots of delicious and healthy crock pot recipes.

    God Bless!!

  3. Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring
    on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.

    I know my viewers would value your work. If you
    are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.

  4. Click “Browse” to determine the recorded My – Space music.
    Putting in this cheat you will save a lot of space.

    Click on “wagon parts” to get parts for the wagon.

  5. Ask us your most pressing questions about Dating, Relationships,
    Love, and Sex. The sooner you can react to change and forecast adjustments, the easier it becomes to
    manage and ultimately eliminate your debt. By eating foods and drinking beverages
    that are rich in such products.

  6. Ok, it’s time to come clean. I’ve been a bit under the weather this week (curse summer sinuses!), started at the beginning, and have been reading through the majority of your blog back to front anytime I get a free snippet of time (between rushing around rearranging things in a fit of inspiration).

    I just ordered your book and can’t wait for it to arrive!

    I know I’m a bit behind on this post, but just in case anyone else comes here looking for ideas, my husband and I travel a lot, so I’ve compiled a list of what I call “hotel meals” that can be made with just a mini-fridge and a microwave.
