Here is my pantry inventory. There is not much. I also have NO meat at all. I used the last of it for tonights dinner. I have only a few dollars left in cash. If it comes down to it, I will cash my change jar in for groceries.

1 Huge Can of Cream of Chicken soup with wild rice
4 boxes of varied pasta
1 box of jumbo pasta shells
several bottles of different salad dressings and marinades
1 jar of salsa verde
3 jars of pasta sauce
1 can of cajun style red beans
1 can of minestrone soup
1 can of tomato paste
several bottles of BBQ sauce
1 can diced jalapenos
3 jars of Peanut butter
1/2 a bag of rice
plain couscous
1/2 bag of tortilla chips
flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking soda, etc.

I also have some lipton rice sides and pasta sides all different flavors

In the freezer/fridge I have mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, milk, eggs, and tons of bread.

Any suggestions?

There's a bread casserole in Diet for a Small Planet, I think. It's basically a savory, rather than a sweet bread pudding: milk, eggs, bread, onion, celery, salt & pepper, if I remember correctly. I'll look and if I can find the recipe, I'll post it here.

I couldn't find the one I wanted,

I have Diet for a Small Planet, it may be in the Recipes for a Small Planet. But I did find something similar online at recipesource.

Here's the recipe (the url is pasted below just to make sure that the owners get credit).
