So my oven has a gas leak, and the new one won't be delivered until Thursday the 7th.

Is it sandwiches until then? Any other meal ideas?

Yup, I thought of that after I made the post. I will buy some brats.

Also will be buying some pita and hummus.

Do you have a crockpot or rice cooker, or other small appliances that can cook for you?

If you have a iron or a toaster, you can make grilled cheese sandwiches, wrap them well in aluminum foil, and cook them with said appliance. You can also cook things this way with heat from the car engine.

+1 on rice cooker meals, I used mine a lot in the dorms. Tons of meals you can make in a rice cooker especially if you have the steamer insert for it.

You can also cook food on an iron. All you need is two heavy things to prop it metal side up and you can place a medium sized skillet on it. I used an iron to cook when I lived in the barracks.

depending on how long you'll be without and your tolerance for non-stovetop items...


... you can buy a single-burner plug in electric stovetop for like $20 and cook simple things with that. You just plug it into an outlet and it works like any other electric burner, just on your counter. They also make two burner ones, but they get a little more expensive.

There's a bunch of types out there, a quick search yielded this one at Walmart for just under $20.

isn't there a method for cooking fish in the dishwasher?

also, I think there are recipes for cooking on the exhaust of your car.

but, there's SO much you can do on a grill.

look for America's Test Kitchen grill recipes and Alton Brown grill recipes.

I eat most of my food raw. Salad: nuts, hummous, pitta bread, beetroot - it's all absolutely delicious and insanely nutritious!

You can't go wrong

Pfft. That's amateur hour.

Alton Brown and the Mythbusters cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner under the hood of an old Cadillac(?) convertible.

IIRC, the only thing they really botched was the gravy.

Is exhaust British for engine? Or do people really cook food behind the tailpipe?

The exhaust system piping starts at the manifold, so the food would go under the bonnet, wherever you can find the hottest accessible spot with enough support for a bundle of aluminium foil wrapped ingredients.
