    Default what would you make?

    What would you make out of this list of ingredients and leftovers?

    chicken breasts (2)
    fish sticks
    1/2 can diced tomato
    baked beans
    cooked cube steak (1)
    sweet potatoes
    bacon
    bratwurst (2)
    1/2 can whole tomatoes
    ham stock
    shredded cheese
    frozen peas
    frozen mixed berries (1/2 bag)
    1/2 lb ground pork
    1 cup sausage crumbles
    meatballs
    cooked whipped cauliflower w/cheese
    cooked cubed potato (1c)
    egg roll wrappers
    spanish rice mix
    sm can crushed pineapple
    stuffing mix
    applesauce
    eggs

    I've got pantry basics (flour, rice, oil, spices, etc) and refrigerated items like milk, butter, condiments and seasonings). Looking forward to seeing your ideas.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    Try the site Supercook: recipe search by ingredients you have at home . It lets you put in everything in your fridge and pantry, and then it suggests recipes that you can make with those items. You can also ask it to exclude or highlight items out of those that you list. You only have to enter then all once, it remembers them, so it's quite easy.

    I'd probably make some kind of chili with a lot of the stuff in your list! (I love chili at this time of year!)

    With the pineapple, make muffins. Use part of the applesauce instead of oil in the muffins. Great for breakfasts or snacks.

    Thanks for the ideas. It really helps to have a different pair of eyes look at the ingredients.

    Some ideas for you....

    baked chicken strips in tomato sauce - serve with pasta
    grilled chicken with pasta & tomato sauce

    sausage crumbles/browned ground sausage with stuffing mix

    soup using ham stock, peas, sweet potatoes, cubed potato, diced cube steak

    fill the eggroll wrappers with whipped cauliflower with cheese

    make a pizza dough then top with olive oil & drained diced tomatoes with herbs for the 'sauce' - you can blend/puree if desired - then add sliced sausage & cheese

    meatballs with a berry sauce in the crockpot serve with spanish rice

    fish sticks & baked beans as a meal on its own

    pineapple, eggs, applesauce - upside down pineapple cake for dessert

    ...hope this helps and that you don't think im way off base!
