My temporary kitchen

The lovely Miss Em asked how we are cooking whilst we are renovating.

We are thinking it should be about 10 weeks from start to finish, which is a long time to live on fast food, especially when you are meant to be avoiding it. So we set up a temporary kitchen in our dining room.

It's nothing fancy, we have a microwave, kettle, toaster and a slow cooker. But between all the meals I pre-prepared, the BBQ and things that can be cooked in the microwave (hello McCains lasagna), we have it sorted.

Because BBQ meat tends to be tougher, i am avoiding it for my own sake, and trying to eat a decent meal for lunch, and eat something small and easy to cook (hello baked beans) of a night.

So that is how we are cooking. Believe me, I do miss having a cooktop though. Just another thing I will appreciate more when I have a kitchen :) Pin It


  1. i had a lovely long comment then blogger quit... grumble... I am excited for you and know you will survive somehow. there was a blog about a lady that cooked with her slowcooker every day for a year. i don't remember the link but i'll look around for it. Good luck!
