“How do you survive without a kitchen?”
“Are you using paper plates?”
“Do you get delivery and drive through fast food?”
Actually, we’re doing quite well. It’s not easy, but we planned for it and we’re keeping up fairly well. Planning ahead, then and now, is essential to coping while the kitchen is under construction.
Rice: Minute white rice and Uncle Ben’s ten minute brown rice, cooked in chicken broth (the freezer is full of good things like this) in the microwave
Chicken breasts: thawed and cooked on grill a few nights ago as “planned-overs.” I diced and reheated the chicken in the microwave.
Beverage: Sun tea, made on the deck on a (what else?) sunny day
A few pieces of leftover zucchini and onion, and there it is: chicken dinner, all prepared without an actual kitchen.
Not bad! But seriously, I look forward to having a kitchen again – and what a kitchen it will be!
