Use the microwave oven! A little water (or vegetable broth) in the covered
dish does the trick.
Bake, broil, grill (outdoors), boil, anything except fry! You don't need
it. Many house fires are caused by frying or grilling on top the stove.
Build a permanent brick grill in the backyard. Shovel the snow off the
grill and build a fire!
