You have limited groceries to last 1 week. What do you make?

You can't go grocery shopping for a week and have to cook dinner 6 times this week for 2 people. You have the following:

MEAT:
Chicken drumsticks
a minute steak
2 country ribs


VEGGIES:
Okra
stir-fry veggie mix
onions
peppers
broccoli
canned veggies
beans

You only have enough grease to fry once.

And you have pretty much all the staples (butter, milk, eggs, flour, oil, rice, potatoes, pasta, spices, etc.)

What's your meal plan for the week?

(This is actually my dillema, lol. I don't have grocery money for the next week and I'm out of meat, so I need your creativeness!!)

  • Ooo the possibilities! You can make biscuits easy and the rice is almost a given. You can make pasta one night with butter salt & pepper and steamed broccoli. Cut up the minute steak and make a gravy serve that over potatos. Ribs, biscuits with sauteed onions and peppers...you can always cook with the oil even if you are limited on grease.

  • Could you use the butter to fry? I put butter in a pan and fry my steaks.

  • You could make bicuits, gravy and eggs. You could do an alfredo sauce over pasta with brocooli on the side. You could do a meatless stirfry with rice on the side. You could make cinnamon rice. You could make a simple potato soup. You could make chicken and dumplings if you have morte than 3 drumsticks. Or..boil the chicken you do have debone and make ina stir-fry.
