    Default What do you do, if you have next to nothing left?

    My fridge is practically empty... and the cupboards almost bare...
    we have to survive four days. (pay/sshopping day is next wednesday) we just have enough for five of us(two adults a 5yo, 4yo<who hardly eats> and a 14mo)... but its all a bit boring lol
    we have sausages (pork and beef 4 three nights), pies, some chips, frozen veges, two and half loaves of bread, 4L milk, potatoes, spaghetti tins (we hardly use but always have some in cupboard) onions, bag mixed fresh nuts, garlic bread, rice, flour, pasta sauce, a few recipe mixes... and a few other Lil bits and pieces like cereal and sugar etc
    im even out of tea bags i have tea everyday!!!

    So my question is what would you make?

    Pies chips and gravy could put some veg on the side
    Sausage sizzle
    Take the tops off the pies and scoop out the meat and heat with veg and some gravy mix and put back in the pie shells with potato on top and you have a quick shepherds pie

    Fried rice out of the rice, onion, frozen vege and you could fry off a couple of sausages, dice them up and put them through the fried rice.

    You could could use the spaghetti and pies for lunches at home.

    You could slice up some of the sausages, put them in with the pasta sauce (add some water and stock powder to make it go a bit further) and if you don't have pasta, you could mix up some flour (self raising, or plain with baking powder), rub through some butter and add some water to make dumplings that you can just sit on top, spoon over some of the thinned out pasta sauce and cover, simmering until the dumplings cook. Or just serve it with garlic bread instead of pasta or dumplings.



    I am so sorry that you have no tea bags. That sucks.

    Bangers & mash!

    Spaghetti on toast (or jaffles if u have a maker)

    Gnocchi (potatoes, milk, flour) with pasta sauce on top & garlic bread

    Sausage casserole (sausages, potato, onions, veggies, one of the flavour mixes?) with steamed rice

    Veggies cooked with one of the flavour mixes on steamed rice
