What kind of pantry items do you still have?



Do you have any canned veggies like tomatoes or tomato sauces?



How about flour, salt, yeast, oil, sugar....



Do you have any more rice or pastas?



Any cheeses?

After making dinner tonight.....I have nothing in the pantry right now, save a bag or two of beans and rice. I have flour, but just enough for a batch of biscuits.

ugh not having the basics like flour, fruits, potatoes, makes things a bit harder, but you have a lot of food to work with...

Breakfasts
Pancakes
Eggs and sausage
sausage gravy and biscuits
omelettes with bits of broccoli and any leftover meats from supper

Lunches
4+ meals chicken nuggets, french fries and veggies
4 meals of bean and cheese burritos, make refried beans?
2 meals of hamburgers, french fries, carrots

Suppers
2 Pot roast (is one pkg enough to feed your family with sides of veggies?)
2 Broccoli rice chicken entree, green beans and carrots
2 pasta meals
1 grilled pork chops with corn, green beans
1 stir fry chicken with rice, carrots, peas
1 chicken casserole with stuffing
2 fish sticks with fries and corn
1 meatloaf with cauliflower, peas
1 hamburger casserole with carrots, peas or leftover pasta

Good luck!!
