So I'm essentially stuck in a dorm for the next couple of weeks and only have a microwave for cooking. What's good or at least edible?

Kashi makes some good stuff: Tuscan sandwiches, flatbreads, etc.  Pop Weaver popcorn is always good.  Warm up some pop tarts for a quick snack.  You can boil some ramen noodles.
Oh Dandy...you came and you gave without taking!

Healthy Choice stuff isn't that bad and it's less expensive and all-around better for you than the previously mentioned Marie Callendar.  However if you don't care about nutrition, go with the latter because they do have some excellent dishes.

All bacon is microwaveable.

Do my McMuffin trick I talk about in my recipe thread.

As my post TSM career starts, I've decided to explore new ventures that I have never tried before. Posting in the Foods folder is one of those new ventures.

I really like flavored Microwaveble Rice, as well as burritos.

Chef Boyardee is also great for a quick microwavable meal.

I use to love Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli. Haven't had it in years.

If you are a real man, you'd eat Hungry-Man XXL meals. They even have burgers and buffalo chicken sandwiches now too!

They also have your daily recommended dose of sodium in each package.  Except for Backyard BBQ.

If you've got a local Kroger/Safeway/HEB/Meijer with a hot table/fresh frozen meals, that's probably the best stuff you can get.

Don't forget party pizzas.  Heh.

Seriously though, I like those Green Giant simply steamed veggie packs.  Garden vegetable medley is my favorite.

I have been eating microwaveable food from Trader Joe's this week (Kung Pao Chicken, Chicken Vindaloo, and Palak Paneer) and they have all been good.  I wish he had Trader Joe's in Lexington.

I just tried The Boston Market Salisbury steak and macaroni and cheese frozen dinner.  Very good.  Highly recommended.

Pick up some California Kitchen Pizzas. The personal pan pizzas are great and actually better when microwaved.

I'm a big fan of Tina's Frozen Burritos. Maybe not the best microwavable food but you can't beat the price (usually 2 for $1).

I'm still doing the diet thing that Cheech started at TOTSM (down 57 pounds as of last Sunday).  So, microwavable dinners have become a staple around here.  Healthy Choice, Smart Ones, Lean Pockets, and these things called Steam Pots which I think are also made by Healthy Choice are all excellent.  I've yet to get one I didn't like.

They kinda made me lethargic for the rest of the day.  Also, aftertaste wasn't great.  Tasted really good the first time, though.

For the record, I've never seen shu mai with chicken.  Ever.  And I shudder to think about how much sodium is in that stuff.

Yeah, I think the sodium content was what killed me for the rest of the day.

I used to buy Healthy Choice Chicken Alfredo, but ever since they cut in half by putting something else with the meal, I haven't bought it since.

My favorites are usually by Michelina's; mainly the Lasagna w/Meat Sauce and the Pepper Steak w/Rice.

Lean Cuisine's with Sriracha thrown on for spice make my stomach happy. And I always get a yearning to cook up like 8 microwave egg-rolls, say once a year.
