Dinner Suggestions

Next week Mr. Right and I will be closing on a new to us house next Monday. Since it was a foreclosure, the only appliance it came with was a dishwasher. We have ordered our new appliances, but they won't be delivered until Sept. 2nd.

Priority #1 will be painting - we'll be over there after work through the week painting and cleaning cabinets and getting everything ready before we start moving stuff in.

His apartment is about a 40 minute drive from the house, as is my parents house. So going home first for dinner would be ridiculous. And I don't want to do fast food every night. Beyond sandwiches (I can make them at work or at my parents house and just cart them to the house in an insulated cooler) what can I make for dinner until we get our appliances?

I think I have an electric skillet boxed up somewhere. And I know I have a george foreman. but no microwave, stove, or oven.

Help please!!


  1. HI!

    Thanks for stopping by and welcoming me into MPM! I am enjoying seeing all the different recipes everyone has!
    Congrats on closing! and now the fun begins! Take your time and don't feel like you have to buy everything at once! :)

  2. Hey, I just saw this post. Here's really easy crock pot recipe that could make a good dinner if you like roast.

    1 2-3lb roast (any type really will do)
    1 can cream of celery soup
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1 envelope dry onion soup mix

    Some recipes say you need to brown the roast in oil before putting it in the crock pot; I don't ever do this simply because I have NO TIME! So place the roast in the crock pot (browned or unbrowned), combine all the ingredients, and pour over the roast. Cook on low 8-10 hours. If you like mushrooms, throw in a can of those, drained. Serve it over the pre-cooked rice. It's so good! We do it around here a lot (my hubby is a meat & potatoes type of guy). It will make more than 2 servings though, so make sure you have a way to tote home the leftovers.


what up yo?
