So my grandma just got moved to a nursing home and my parents had to clear out all of her cupboards. As a result, I got a ton of random foodstuffs. Now some meal things out of this are pretty obvious, like make cornbread with the corn meal, make fried chicken with the Dixie Fry bread crumbs, make soup with all the soup packs, dirty rice with the spanish rice mix, blahblahblah. But I want to know if there is anything a bit more creative I could do with all of this. So here we go!
(And I am willing to buy extra stuff to go with these things in order to get real meals out of them...)
Spanish Rice mix
Dixie Fry coating mix
Chicken noodle soup
Honey Nut Cheerios
Au Gratin potato mix
Mac and Cheese
Frozen yeast rolls
Various spices, baking stuff and cooking stuff (i.e. oil, sugar, flour, sauces, etc)
What should I have for dinner? I suck at cooking and no one is home tonight so that=making my sister and I dinner tonight.
I have an array of things...including:
Vande Kamps beer battered fish fillets
a wide variety of cereals including cheerios, fruity pebbles, corn puffs, etc.
dill pickles (spears)
candy hearts (you know, the kind that say things like "Hot stuff!" and "Fuck me now!" on them).
Every spice under the sun, basically
Boca brand Soy Sausage links
every flavor of fruit yogurt
grated mexican cheese
tortilla shells (the soft, big kind)
a head of lettuce
a bad of big long carrots
I have access to a deep fryer if that means anything.
I'd like to make breakfast for me and my dad tomorrow morning. I have general ingredients, and condiments and things like that. There are just certain foods I'd like to use before they go bad.
Foods I'd like to use up before they go bad:
shredded cheddar cheese
about a cup of cooked white rice
a bit of shredded mozzarella
Trader Joe's pizza sauce
low fat cream cheese
assorted flavors of yogurt
a bunch of frozen mini bagels
frozen waffles and french toast
sugar free cool whip
I'll probably end up making some sort of breakfast taco with the eggs, rice, cheddar cheese, salsa, and tortillas. But I'm really hoping to find something to do with the ricotta and cream cheese.
So this is all the crap I have in my junk cupboard and freezer. Most of this stuff has been there since I moved in with my husband over 2 years ago. Some of it was given by my MIL (who has the wierdest taste in food ever) and some of it I bought on a whim and ended up never using. So, suggestions please!!!
Dried pinto beans
A chicken breast
I also have:
most condiments and spices
And I would be willing to buy a few things to help make the meal. Anything to get this crap out of my cupboard. Have at it!!!
Yay! So...I just made this community (as in about 5 minutes ago)! Tell your friends! Or if this is a totally lame idea for a comm, feel free to tell me that too.
Also, does anyone know of good communities that we could advertise this in?
