and don't yet have a crockpot or microwave. We need groceries -- can you mamas suggest some no-bake or top of the stove sorts of meals that a young toddler can also eat? DD is 14mo. Thanks, mamas!

I'm thinking spaghetti, maybe lentil tacos, beans and rice ... any other ideas?

I'm leaning towards little/no cooking since it still smokes when I even use the top of the stove.

If you get canned garbanzos, you can make hummus with no cooking at all.

Quesadillas are fast and easy.

Oatmeal with nuts and fruit.

Fruit salad.

Rice salad.

Soups, like green lentil, etc...

Well, I'd get a crockpot. You can get one for $15.

That said, what about boring 'ole sandwiches? blt's?

You could just get a bunch of nuts and fruit and cheese.

Oh...I've never looked into this, and you'll probably roll your eyes in frustration with me, but...

Have you ever heard of cooking on your car engine? I'd love to try it someday. The idea basically goes...wrap your food up and put it on the engine. Drive somewhere, then take it out and eat it. I've heard of people cooking fairly gourmet meals that way. Sounds like fun, anyway.

But, if I were you...I'd just sandwich stuff. Eggs...they cook fast. You could make some great omelets.

You can toss beans with veggies and simple dressing for a bean salad, or mash them with some spices, maybe chopped onion onion and spread on tortillas with cheese, veggies, etc. for a mash bean roll-up sandwich.

Cooking some extra pasta when you do use the stove can get saved for no-cook pasta salads for later. Hard boiled eggs wouldn't take too much stovetop cooking and will save well for later too.
