Tip of the Day: Hot Plate

by Eubie on May 30, 2013

If you have a stove, either your apartment is too big or your wallet’s too fat… okay, your wallet can never be too fat. Still, we are militant advocates of the Spartan lifestyle. Minimize. Less is more. You don’t need a stove. They’re expensive and take up a lot of space. A hot plate will do just fine. Anything you need to cook, you can cook on a hot plate (or in a microwave… yeah, they’re good, too). To start you off, we have a sure-fire winning recipe: soup and a sandwich. First, open up a can of soup, pour it in a pot and heat it until it’s hot enough to remain hot while you grill your sandwich. Next, take two pieces of a bread and a couple slices of cheese. Any cheese will do but American is always the default option. Butter one side of each piece of bread, slice a half-inch of butter and pop it into a skillet or frying pan and let it melt, but not evaporate. Then put the cheese sandwich into the pan and brown each side, preferably using a spatula to press it into the pan. Put it on a paper towel or a plate, pour the soup into a bowl (sorry, we forgot to tell you to leave the soup in the pan so it retains its heat), and then enjoy! For dessert, eat some fruit, yogurt, fruit with yogurt, or a piece of chocolate. A little chocolate is good for you. Really. Now go for a walk to help with digestion. When you get back, we’ll talk more about what you’re going to do with the rest of your life. Bon appetit!
