easy simple dinners

Hi.
Okay it’s Sarah. I haven’t been on in a while but we moved and I am getting a new computer this week sometime (whenever they deliver it) so I haven’t had internet access.
Anyway, my question is, I was wondering if anyone had any recipes for quick easy dinners. We only have a tiny refrigerator in the garage until the end of the week and the stove is very old and I am afraid to use it, though I think it works. (they are delivering a fridge and stove at the end of the week) But my question is, what are some good easy dinners I could do with my situation (BTW to get to the fridge you have to go up and down stairs…I know its good exercise but I hate doing it…lol…)

Thanks!

Do you have access to an oven? Microwave?

I'd stick with salads... you can by pre-roasted chicken to add if you want.
or
make some tuna and have a nice sandwich.
or
if you have a stove soup is always nice, pick up some French bread to go along with it.

Good luck
and enjoy
your new home!

What about one-dish crockpot meals?

Take a 1/2 cup of uncooked rice, wash down with 1-1.5 cups of water.

Enjoy.

Sounds like a perfect time to get "take out" burgers and fries, tacos and burritos, KFC chicken, Asian, whatever .... without ANY guilt. You can make up for you sins breaking in your new stove when you get it.

Corned beef & cabbage in the crock pot! Or you can use new potatoes if you don't care for cabbage. Nice & easy, and just the crock pot. :)

Do you have an electric skillet? If so, you can fry up some pork ribs, chops or cutlets in the that, then cover with saurkraut and simmer til the pork is tender. Everyone I cook that for really likes it.
