      Honestly never done this so I’m tempted to dick around and try it once. I’ve basically seen every episode of American Dad so hotel TV holds no appeal to me anymore.

      I’ve already lived off of microwave meals when they shove me in holiday inn’s, but I’m bummed because I was promised a way to cook some real shit for once. I guess I can microwave pasta?

        if you have a fridge just get cold stuff to eat. Salads, sandwiches, pasta salad, yogurt & granola etc. Then if you want something hot on the side, throw a baked potato or frozen side dish in the microwave.
        You could get precooked chicken slices, heat up and throw on a salad. Bacon you can cook in the microwave too, make a blt or whatever. Get some cans of tuna, make tuna melt. Hummus & veggies. Lots of stuff you can make without really cooking.

        That's not bad. I'd spend the money on sandwich materials, some sardines and crackers. Without a stove that cuts out things like rice and beans, but you could go to a restaurant/buffet and get a good hot filling meal every day for 15-24 dollars, and then just eat sandwiches whenever you're hungry.
        I'd advise against getting fast food every day like the other anon suggested because that will just make you sick.

    You can make scrambled eggs in a microwave and you can't tell the difference once it's on a plate. Just take a small bowl, put eggs in it, and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then stir it, and 30 seconds more. Repeat that process until they're cooked. The frequent stirring is necessary, otherwise you'll have chewy eggs on the edges and raw eggs in the middle.

    Also, this is a good way to make shaped eggs for sandwiches, round or square.

      I will let you know what frozen meals I've had already and my ratings:
      >Stouffer's Lasagna with Meat & Sauce
      Pretty Solid. Nothing absolutely amazing, but it was just cheesy enough and not too dry. Probably better in an oven. Salty. 7/10.
      >Amy's Roasted Poblano Enchilada
      A perennial favorite of mine, love the taste and somehow the tortillas aren't completely soggy despite being nuked and drenched in sauce. Kind of lower in calories and pricey, though. 8/10.
      >Hungry Man Roasted Carved Turkey Dinner
      The compote is too sweet, but it works with the turkey. Reminds me of a crappy version of the "thanksgiving leftovers sandwich," and turkey is a mediocre enough meat in most situations that I'm not offended by the frozen variant. Veggie medley is okay. It's fun to make a big slop of everything once you finish the turkey. Dirt cheap. 6.5/10

    Did you at least go to the front desk and ask where the cooktop is in your "full kitchen"? And/or confirm that none of their rooms have an oven and cooktop?
    Hotels like to advertise a full kitchen but only have a partial setup in many rooms, and then default people to those partial setup rooms unless you go out of your way to explicitly state you need the actual advertised full kitchen room.

    OP here, while we’re on the subject of per diem, I know this is off topic, but the way people b***h about wages in my job drives me nuts. I would never argue with being paid more, but people see 22 an hour with a 59 no receipt per diem and say shit like “BUT I COULD MAKE 22 FLIPPING BURGERS” (lol), as if that 59 a day no questions asked is nothing. If I work a 10 hour day that’s basically 6 more dollars an hour with no tax. I’m sure if you told these same people 26 an hour they’d jump for joy despite that 6 getting taxed and also being dependent on your hours that day.
