Better way to stream from TElHTTPSClient to TStringList?

I'm currently retrieving a name-value "file" via HTTPS. The way I'm going it seems like it could be improved: HTTPS--(via OutputStream)-->TMemoryStream->TStringList. Is there a better way that would eliminate the TMemoryStream? In other words, can I go directly from the HTTPS client component to the TStringList?

Something like this:

HTTPClient.OutputStream := TStringStream.Create;
MyStringList.Text := TStringStream(HTTPClient.OutputStream).Text; // I don't remember exact TStringStream's property name

Sincerely yours

Yes, that's essentially what I'm already doing. I was hoping to eliminate the extra step of the TStringStream, which essentially does nothing more than "double buffer" the content from the GET.
