Thanks to some superb non-planning and rotten luck, our house seems to be under siege.
The hot water heater had a panic attack Tuesday and let loose all over half the basement (all fixed, but dang those things are expensive!). Then, last night, the furnace suddenly decided to stop working, which normally wouldn’t be too bad since we also have a gas fireplace. However, we ran out of propane Saturday and just heard from Energy USA that it could be five days before they deliver.
I am not worried about us freezing to death. The furnace guys are on their way and I am optimistic that it’ll all be fixed up today. But not having any propane ALSO means no stove or oven, which means I need to be more creative than usual in planning meals.
So, this is where I ask for help! Please, if you have a minute, send me your favorite healthy recipes for the crockpot, electric frying pan, or microwave. Sure, I can fall back on my usual chicken and wine, turkey chili, or Southwestern chicken soup, but am hoping that from this disaster some great new recipes will be inspired.

Thanks in advance!
