anyone have any ideas for recipes that use any or all of the following but nothing more: eggs, potatoes, onions, rice, tomato sauce, tuna, branflakes, sugar, salt, pepper, milk, water, apples, grapefruits, and peanut butter. those are my cooking supplies for the month – i’m starting to run out of ideas and it’s only halfway thru!April 21, 2010 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm #686801
emoticon613, google is your friend in the recipe department. Just google recipe and a few of the ingredients, and you’ll get dozens of recipes that use those ingredients. Some will use more ingredients than the ones you google, but you have to filter them out.
Happy Tuna and Pasta Sauce Surprise!April 21, 2010 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #686802
don’t forget that every type of food is improved by adding ketchup.April 22, 2010 12:05 am at 12:05 am #686803
What is this, some kind of diet?
Sushi? (fresh tuna)

how do you have peanut butter with any of those things?April 22, 2010 3:05 am at 3:05 am #686806
Also try allrecipes. In their advanced search you can add ingredients that you want and those you don’t.
Any veggies? flour?
Why can’t you get additional ingredients?April 22, 2010 3:44 am at 3:44 am #686807
tuna latkes will use up the tuna, onions, eggs, salt, pepper, (crushed) bran flakes, and you can make rice as a side dish.April 22, 2010 4:17 am at 4:17 am #686808
Well you can anytime make my favorite: mashed potatoes with some yummy sauted onions in them!!April 22, 2010 7:53 am at 7:53 am #686809
mchemtob you sound like a gourmet chef! goodness me, thanks for the ideas.
dovv that’s what you get when you buy pb for sandwiches and then forget that halfway thru the month you’ll get bored of sandwiches, but that’s too bad cuz bread is about the only thing we have in abudance!
lakewood wife: budgeting. that’s what it’s called. veggies: too expensive, flour: couldn’t think of enough uses when i was shopping, and besides, couldn’t think much of anything w/ the makolet staff trying to get me out of there so they could go home early for yom hashoah.
fun fun fun!April 22, 2010 7:53 am at 7:53 am #686810

not a gourmet chef it’s just years of cooking on a budget. after a while you start to get the hang of it and it get a lot easier.April 22, 2010 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #686812
How could you get bored of sandwiches?? there are so many possibilties.. toasted, plain, peanut butter, omlette inside, fried with eggs..

This is from Mrs. Judi Dick’s “A Taste of Nostalgia”:
Potatoes, Eggs, and Onions: (10 servings)
3-4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 hard-boiled eggs
1 onion, diced
3 Tbsp. oil
Cook cubed potatoes with water just to cover and salt about 10 minutes, until tender.
Drain well and return potatoes to pot over low heat for a few seconds to dry.
In a large bowl, peel and chop eggs. Add cooked potatoes and raw onion and mash well. Add oil and season to taste. Good warm, at room temp, or chilled.April 23, 2010 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #686817
mmmm mchemtob that sandwich sounds gr8.. not a fan of red onions thoApril 25, 2010 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #686818
apple fritters, potato latkes, tuna patties, apple & grapefruit compote, mashed potatoes, (you can roll in crushed branflakes for a kind of knish), tomato rice soup, potato soup, pesachdik potato blintzes (using eggs and milk as the crepe – no flour…), crepes with peanut sauce, spanish rice (with onions and tomato sauce…), potato kugel, onion rings (can just dip in eggs…), chremslach (mashed poatoes fried like latkes), onion omelet, french fries (make your own ketchup with tomato sauce and sugar), apples and PB, PB & milk cooked together makes a delicious drink…
that’s all i can think of for now.

How about slice the apples, apple-kugel-style, mix with a bit of flour and cinnamon and lemon juice (in your case, I guess just a sprinkle of sugar and grapefruit juice???). Top with a mixture of bran flakes and peanut butter. Let me know how it goes 😉June 21, 2010 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #686821
Or you can always cancel your internet plan and buy some food…June 22, 2010 2:23 am at 2:23 am #686822
