Challenge: Six weeks with only a hot plate and a microwave

Our kitchen is being re-modeled (yeah!) but for six weeks I am limited to a small hot plate and a microwave with no refrigeration to speak of unless it stays cold outside. Available cooking space is about two square feet (unless the hotplate is set up) and the sink is a bar sink. (You guessed it, I am cooking in the pantry). I am not totally adverse to frozen meals although I would rather not! Suggestions?
