Tight Times: A hot plate and a slow cooker is all you need…

Stuck in a low rent dump and can’t afford a microwave? Hey, all you need is a hot plate (aka one burner) and a double boiler (2 pots that fit into each other). If you fill each with about 1″ of water and slip one of those plastic microwaveable food storage containers in there… dinner is served. Great when you want to heat a container right from the fridge and want to save on the clean up mess. And if you want home baked potatoes and chicken or a great stew, put a slow cooker into service. I have even made pulled pork and desert in mine (not at the same time). Find loads of slow cooker recipes at your local library… and enjoy a home cooked meal, even without a microwave or oven.

Freelance writer. Activist on homeless issues. 48 years old. I write about subjects that need to be examined closely and thoughtfully. The idea for Brain Sections came from reading a book about abandoned asylums. I wanted to set a suspense story in that setting. The inclusion of crazed scientists turning homeless people into zombies is what makes the story unique. View all posts by tjmcfee
