Need cooking ideas
« on: January 13, 2013, 02:35:22 PM »
What can you or have you thought of cooking in a coffee pot? I was going to try Raman Noodles, and stuff off this list. Just seeing if you guys had any other things y'all have heard of or have done.

Also, good microwave food.

I'm trying to save a little money by cutting my eating out bill since I eat on the go regularly, and need to save cash for tuition, but I don't want to eat cold sandwiches every day either. That's all we have at the office, a coffee maker, microwave, and about to add a mini fridge.

You can reheat just about anything except fish.

When I was in FL, I would just spend an hour or two on Sunday making my food for the week. Granted, I have no problem eating the same thing every day so it was very easy for me. Just make a big pot of something and split it up in to plastic containers.

I figure I'll do some cooking at home too, but honestly, I won't always have time with work and school. Just wanted some back up ideas since I'm not going to always have access to food from home on a given day.

I don't know if this is exactly what you were looking for but, it's a couple books that have strictly microwave meals.

Get a slow cooker and vegetables and there's almost no limit to the tasty, healthy meals you can make.

Get a pressure cooker. It's ideal for your situation.

I have one, and it is one of the best things I ever bought. Awesome meals in 15 minutes, and can make a lot for leftovers. Make shredded chicken burritos once a week and it provides quick (and pretty healthy) leftovers for when I am on the run.

My mother has one that plus into a regular wall outlet that she absolutely loves. It automatically regulates pressure and you can set a delay start and a cook time, i think it will also go through a warming cycle to keep your food warm.

You could also get an electric skillet and make all kinds of stuff. Jim lives in motels and travels with one for his meals

If you have the counter space, get a Pizzazz pizza oven.

They are AMAZING for anything. A roommate of mine had one when I was in college. I used to cook sandwiches, chicken, fish, burgers, you name it on there. ...of course it's great for pizza too.
