I need to make it 12 more days on what I have in my pantry. I've already made plans for everything but 3 meals, and this list is what I have left... I have no idea how I'm going to pull 3 meals out of it.<br><br>
(I do have beef and chicken bullion, flour, sugar, eggs & milk in addition to this list)<br><br><b>Freezer</b><br>
Meatballs (huge bag)<br>
1/2 pkg bacon<br><br><b>Beans & Other Dry Items</b><br>
Brown Rice<br>
White Long Grain Rice<br>
French Onion Soup Mix (3 or so)<br>
TONS of beans (northern, kidney, spilt pea, pinto...etc)<br><br><b>Canned Goods</b><br>
Greek Black Olives<br>
1 tiny can sliced black olives<br>
2 Cans sliced potatoes<br>
1 can tomato paste<br>
1 can creamed corn<br>
1 Can sauerkraut<br><br><b>Fresh</b><br>
Celery<br>

I think you can make it. The meals may not be totally nutritionally balanced, but hey, it's not forever, just a few meals.<br><br>
One meal suggestion:<br><br>
French onion soup with some meatballs<br><br>
OR<br><br>
You could make a kind of corn chowder with the creamed corn, French onion soup, milk. Add some meatballs if that sounds good.<br><br>
Another:<br><br>
Make rice, make a sauce out of the tomato paste, water, meatballs,maybe a can of the potatoes, some sauteed celery. Top with cheese.<br><br>
Another:<br><br>
a bean soup with some bacon. Top with cheese, if you like.<br><br>
A classic (and I'm guessing you already have this, but hey!):<br><br>
Beans and rice. Add some bacon or meatballs for an extra Oomph! Or top with some cheese and make it a mexican style dinner.<br><br>
Okay, that's all I got!<br><br>
Good luck!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Sounds like you are doing good so far.<br><br>
I might do<br><br>
a bean soup with the french onion soup mix as a base, potatoes for extra bulk and some bacon for flavor. You could also make biscuits on the side if you have any butter or shortening.<br><br>
meatballs with rice, and maybe the corn on the side.<br><br>
Pizza (do you have any yeast? usually it is under $2.00 for three packets) with tomato, cheese, and olives.

1. Fry sauerkraut and potatoes in bacon fat, crumble in bacon<br><br>
2. Meatballs and creamed corn<br><br>
3. could make some kinda rice with crumbled meatballs, a little tomato paste mixed with sugar, add olives, pinto beans, mexican type spices - cumin, red pepper, black pepper, chilli powder, salt, onion and garlic powder. Top with lots of cheese. Don't over do the tomato paste - start low, go slow. Would dilute tom. paste with water a little first

You could make a simple drop biscuit recipe (<a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/E-Z-Drop-Biscuits/Detail.aspx" target="_blank">http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/E-Z-Dro...ts/Detail.aspx</a> - these are really good) and cook up some eggs and bacon for breakfast biscuit sandwiches.<br><br>
If you go to allrecipes.com, they have an ingredient search. Put in a few ingredients and it will show you what you can make. I found a tasty looking recipe for rice soup: <a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Simply-Delicious-Rice-Soup/Detail.aspx" target="_blank">http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Simply-...up/Detail.aspx</a><br><br>
Good luck!

Meatballs and gravey with mashed potatoes (mash up the taters from the cans with a little boullion for extra flavor...cheaper than milk).<br><br>
Waffles and scrambled eggs.<br><br>
rice and beans<br><br>
bean soup (use the bacon and bacon grease as a base, with perhaps the french onion for extra flavor) with homemade sour dough bread or drop biscuits.<br><br>
Meatball sandwiches with leftover meatballs and bread
