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?

Stretch your minnestrone soup with extra pasta, which will also make it more substantial for a meal.

If you can afford a bag of dry beans, you could cook them with some of the pasta sauce for flavor, maybe add a little sauteed onion and pepper, or some of your spicier salsas. They'll go a long way.

Baked potatoes topped with cheese and sauteed onion.

Chop boiled eggs into a cream sauce -- you can add cheese if you like, and any other seasonings -- and serve on toast.
