Sinkless in Seattle

No fridge, no stove, no sink, no Farmer’s Market fix – this week was a sad week for fine dining in our little Seattle bungalow. I tried to make it to a market this week, but in my exuberance for checking out all of the local markets, I forgot to check the start dates. And, guess what? The one I tried for is not open until June. Oops. When does your local market open?
The market trip was an adventure all the same. I found a new neighborhood and circled the nearby blocks a few times looking for farmers and happy market shoppers before I realized my flub. But, that’s okay, because I am not sure what I would have done with my finds. The kitchen is under construction and I am still figuring out how to regularly feed us in this new and confusing reality. Luckily my good friend brought us delicious dinners two nights this week, but I can't count on that for the whole next month!! We have a microwave, toaster, fridge and a grill. (And, Ginger's nice offer of a two burner hot plate, but that’s not over yet.) And we’re washing dishes in the tub, so the fewer the better, there.
I need your help - any and all ideas/simple recipes you are willing to share - for how to cook and eat healthfully without using the kitchen stove (or the rest of the kitchen, for that matter). What should I make? We’ll gather supplies at the market this weekend, and I will post pictures and tell you how your ideas worked for us. I'll add some pics of the situation at home, too. It's pretty wild! You have to unzip the plastic to get into the "mess kitchen."
Thanks for your ideas. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
