When you've been on the road a while, the thought of going out for yet another restaurant meal can be daunting. So some enterprising person put together this wiki  on how to cook food in a hotel room . The recipes seem to center around using a coffeemaker and/or an iron, neither of which is going to earn a place in my kitchen any time soon. But hey, if you're desperate enough, I guess coffeepot oatmeal might start to sound good. Me, I'll go for room service, thank you very much!
Speaking of thanks, a big one to Nancy  for the pointer.
