Menu Plan: No Oven

It’s hot here, really hot. I had to turn on the air conditioning, which is fine, I do live in Florida. What I don’t like is super high electric bills, so many of these meals can be made without using an oven!

  1. Cool, I made bagels last week for the first time, now I’m inspired to try English muffins!

  2. I’m in FL too, and our A/C had to come on also. Love your menu! Hubby is grilling lots of meats outside today, which will mean easy heat-ups in the microwave for our dinners this week.

  3. One tip you and your readers might like for when it is hot and you need an oven – We purchased a 2 shelf Hamilton Beach convection oven at Kohls. It is GREAT! You can make cookies, …whatever and it doesn’t heat up the kitchen like a regular oven will.

    The only issue is that the top shelf is a bit too high so you have to rotate foods in it to get them to evenly brown, but I LOVE the convenience of being able to bake 2 batches of something at once – and quickly – something that I couldn’t do w/ my last convection oven.

  4. this is great! our weather in northern california gets hot too!

  5. Your family eats a lot like ours. Thanks for the ideas. I’m always looking for non-oven ideas for dinner. Thanks! Lisa~

    Our air has been on all weekend here in TN. We celebrated Easter at church this morning and have lots of ham left so it is looking like we will be remaking the ham into many meals this week.

  7. YUM!!! the grilled pizza looks AMAZING!! And my husband could eat tacos every single week! lol

  8. Some good ideas here. I was just thinking last night (After I heated up the whole house with the oven) That I needed to start doing some non-oven meals. Only a few days into April and we are already entering the mid-90’s…

  9. hmmm, I think I need to get my waffle maker out and whip up a batch one day this week.

  10. Grilled pizzas are too often overlooked! Thanks for sharing these tasty meals sans oven. Many people forget that desserts aren’t always “baked” goods. Puppy chow is a family favorite that doesn’t take much more than a microwave and a ziplock bag!
