Can you buy a crock pot? Or a propane camping stove?

@regberadaisy:  I’ll totally second the crock pot suggestion.  There is a ton you can do with those!

Use herbs and spices to your advantage – stock up your pantry with stuff like basil, thyme, rosemary, curry, red pepper flakes, etc.  We’re always adding them to our regular dishes to give them a different flavor so it feels like a different dish.  We’ve been eating chicken everyday for over a week and haven’t had the ‘same’ dish twice!  =o)  Also, I totally second the ideas on a george forman grill or an electric burner!!

A couple of weeks ago my Future Mother-In-Law was telling me how she used to cook EVERYTHING in the microwave all the time. Apparently it was the thing to do. I bet you can find some good recipes online!

Totally with the crock pot suggestions!  There is zero limit to what you can do with it.

Hmm…I would pick up a crock pot for like $20…you can do SO much with them  or a toaster over…a good one can really act like an oven in lots of cases.

I would do salad, or turkey dogs, or microwave meals! Hmm…those microwavable steamer bags for veggies..

I also agree that a crock pot would be useful. They are pretty cheap at Walmart/Target/even the drugstore. You could also get a single burner like this for doing things that you usually use a stovetop for. 

As far as the small fridge situation, there are a lot of things that we refridgerate that don’t need refridgeration. Eggs & butter, for example, keep for a very long time on the counter, so I wouldn’t use refridgerator space for those if you are lacking. Many fruits & vegetables will keep well on the counter, too (primarily things like onions, garlic, squash, potatoes, most fruits, etc). Basically, save most of your fridge space for quality meats, cheeses, and other dairy.

crock pot+rice cooker… that will solve all your problems!

I love my rice cooker–I make white rice, brown rice, rice pilaf, cous cous, quinoa, and even zesty fiesta rice (with beans and chiles) in it! It just sits on our counter and beeps when it’s ready–super simple!
