 so i have to resort to going to the dollar store until they build the Hannaford here.  we are short in gas this week due to rain and my husband taking the car to work instead of the motorcycle.  so im limited here and i need help! theres nothing really huge there they have a small freezer and a few shevles with food, most of it seriously unhealthy!  i dont want ramon or pizza or anything like that!  so think boxed foods and cans and does anyone have maybe some idea of what i could make?

Chili would be easy and they should have ingredients if you have the burger

Are you looking to use canned meats or do you have meat?

Oh gosh. sketti is first thing I can think of off the top of my head. You're lucky you have $ store. We don't even have that.

I never buy food at the dollar store (well, i get snack stuff) so i dont even know what kind of stuff they have. Do they have eggs?? You could get pancake mix or muffin mix, spaghetti stuff, if they have bread and cheese then grilled cheese and soup.

You could use canned tuna or chicken and add it to boxed Mac n cheese. You could also add in some canned veggies or serve them on the side.

If I were you, since DH has the car, I'd make him stop at the store!!

Same here.  I wouldn't have a clue as to what they sell for food.

Quoting Kimberly954:
