When I say cheap I mean, I'm not going grocery shopping bc we have no money. We have Tilapia filets for tonight, but we aren't getting paid until Monday... so I need ideas for the next four nights! Here's a few of the things I have:
about 5 baking potatoes, 3 cans of northern beans, 2 cans of black beans, 2 cans each of Cream of Mush. Cream of Chick. and Chicken broth. Spaghetti noodles, Elbow noodles, Tomato sauce, Rotel (diced tomatoes with peppers), any spice you can think of, some brown rice, some "boil in a bag" white rice, lots of olive oils, vinegars, sherry, etc. Salsa, peanut butter, syrup, honey, mustards (Dijon, honey mustard, reg mustard) minced garlic, a head of lettuce, and a few full bars of real butter, some frozen white corn and frozen honey carrots, and a frozen ham steak. I have all the main baking ingredients- all purpose flour, some wheat flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder/soda, vanilla, salt/pepper, powdered sugar, etc.
The key things I am MISSING from just about all my recipe's are milk, cheese and eggs. And I have a very small amount of margarine to work with too. And no bread (a few leftover hot dog buns, and a few flour/corn tortillas, but not very many!).
I'm just not very creative when it comes to this kinda stuff...This isn't everything but if you can throw out some ideas I can probably put something together. We've been using applesauce as a sub for eggs which works well in most things. We also have Bisquick baking mix, and one box of mac-n-cheese! Thanks ladies!!!
