    I need help. I need to do shopping and my fridge has minimal food in it as does my pantry. The freezer has steak, diced bacon pieces and fish in it as well as minimal peas, corn and beans. The fridge has cabbage, cauliflower, capsicum, celery, zucchini, snow peas, broccoli, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, Greek yogurt, lettuce, various sauces. my cupboard has rice, pasta shells, s r flour, corn flour, small tin of crushed tomatoes, tin of cream chicken soup And pumpkin soup. Jar of sweet and sour sauce. Lots of eggs, potatoes, garlic and onions. The stuff in the fridge has minimal amounts of everything.

    Any ideas? I also have lots of different spices I can use. I just feel like something tasty.

    Mostly for tonight because I really cant be bothered going to the shop today. But I also like to try and empty out my fridge and cupboards before I do my shopping.

    Dp asked for fried rice the other day and that reminds me I think I have some frozen roast pork in the freezer! That's high on the list of possibilities!

    Stir Fry with steak, brocolli, snowpeas, whatever other veg takes your fancy.

    Pasta sauce with bacon, celery, carrot, tin of tomatoes.

    Steak and salad

    Fish and chips and salad

    Fried rice with cabbage, celery, bacon, egg, peas, corn, beans and whatever other veg takes your fancy.

    As a side dish, potato pancakes - grated potato, mix with flour and a eggs to make a pancake consistency, approx 1 egg and a few tablespoons of flour per potato. Fry pancakes in hot oil.
    Potato cakes are a good idea because dd1 needs a few snack things for school and she is starting to get fussy and only wanting packaged, high sugar foods. I could add a few vegetables to it too.

    We have had protein, salad and/or chips a fair bit lately and if I mention that at the moment dp cringes.

    I guess I get so used to doing the same things over and over that I forget about the other things that are simple yet tasty that I can make like the pancakes and fried rice.

    This thread is great!

    I read the other day you can make pumpkins scones out the pumpkin soup and sr flour.

    Greek yogurt and sr flour makes a great scroll base or pizza base.

    Mini quiches
    whole egg and bacon pies

    Curry and rice

    Risotto

    Edit. Adding sr on the flour.

    I heard about the Greek yogurt and flour too and want to make the scrolls one day.

    I will have to look into the pumpkin soup scone recipe because we don't use the pumpkin soup from a tin as we like homemade pumpkin soup better. I picked up and bought it by accident thinking it was something else.
