Convection Oven Dinners
March 6, 2010 11:26 AM Subscribe
What can I do with a tabletop convection oven? I bought it so I can have more options than a microwave provides when we work late and eat dinner at our office. I know convection ovens are used a lot for bakery goods and for the toaster-oven function but I am not interested in either of these. What would be good to cook in a convection oven in our office that we couldn't just make at home, freeze, and warm up in the microwave? I like healthy low calorie meals.

We do not have a kitchen at our office and I am trying to make it more dinner-friendly since my husband and I often work very late at night and are tired of going out to eat in the neighborhood. As stated, I have been making a lot of dishes in advance and freezing them in smaller portions to bring in with me, thaw during the day, and warm up in the microwave at dinner time. I am hoping the convection oven can bring more possibilities. We have a refrigerator, but no real prep-space or utensils, so it would be best if it is something I could prepare at home and bring with me to cook. Any ideas?
