So you have a bunch of stuff in your pantry and you need to use it. I suggest trying my "whatever chili": You know you have a package of chili seasoning in there, you just have to find it. Fry up equal amounts of hamburg and turkey. Saute an onion that hasn't gone bad and add whatever is in the cupboard to make a yummy meal. For example, if you don't have kidney beans use the black eyed peas that have been sitting around for a few years. Also, use up all of the tomato product except for the soup. This includes paste, diced, sauce and maybe the burrito seasoning packet too, if you think there's enough meat. Then add just about anything else that you think might be good in chili, like corn. I didn't dare to use the beets though, I'm thinking about making a new version of shepard's pie with those. Also use any left over tomatoes that you might have in the fridge and use the carrots that are going to spoil if you don't eat them. Now you have about 5 meals made out of the stuff you would have thrown away. I expect that that will save you about $30! and that doesn't include the original price of all of that would be garbage!
my life was laundry, dishes, chili and football this weekend.
