Renovation kitchen

With the renovations under way, we don’t have access to the basics you might need to do things like cook or stay sane.  While we are eating out or ordering in much more than we normally would, we also purchased a toaster oven (on sale for $20) and a 1.7 cu ft mini fridge to try to manage some home cooking.  Here are a couple of the more ambitious things we’ve cooked up:

shepherds_pie
Shepherd’s pie, constructed from frozen vegetables and store-bought mashed potatoes in a pre-made pie crust.
twice_baked_potatoes
Twice-baked potatoes.  These took two days to make.

I’m not sure how we’re going to survive the next two months, but I’m confident we are.  If you’ve got any easy-to-make toaster-oven recipes, leave them in the comments below!

 

As a side note, I’m having a tough time finding motivation to post while everything is up the air, but I’ll try to share some information on our budgeting in general and our house budget in particular over the next couple of weeks.  We’ve been spending most of our evenings watching My Drunk Kitchen on YouTube – if you haven’t seen it yet, you should check it out.
