Alright, it’s time for the final cooking challenge. You’re staying in a hotel room and would much rather cook for yourself then
spend any more money on food. The challenge is you’re without a kitchen.
What can you make that won’t break the bank and still taste good? The
one tool that will be absolutely essential to your survival is a coffee
pot. Yes, you read correctly a coffee pot. Nearly every hotel and motel
knows the importance of the almighty coffee pot but it can be used for
more than just a fine cup of joe. So lets get to our breakfast, lunch
and dinner for today.
First things first! Rinse out the coffee pot thoroughly! You may have to run it a few times, the first with a little bit of soap (I mean it just
a little bit…unless you want to make a bubble fountain then go right
ahead). Once the coffee pot is clean you’re ready to cook.
(I suggest dried fruit as it is easy to keep and snack on later, fresh
fruit is the best but can be more costly and you may end up with more
than you will use in one meal. However, if you want to get all fancy
with it any kind of seasonal berries will do.)
Add all contents to pot. Brew and eat. (If using fresh berries add them in after the oatmeal has been cooked and drained.)
Chop and combine in a bowl (or nearest bowl-like object; coffee pot, mug, etc.) celery, tomatoes, chick peas, and onions. Add tuna and dress
salad with lemon juice and the oil from the tuna (as much as desired).
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, toss and eat.
Chop up carrot, snow peas and mushrooms and put into coffee pot. Run through brew cycle one (twice if you like really your veggies well
cooked). Drain the water from the pot. Break up ramen noodles and add
them to the pot along with the desired amount of the seasoning packet.
Brew and enjoy.
This concludes my introduction to cooking in! Do you have any go-to recipes when you’re traveling?
