bare cupboard recipes

Recommended Posts

what do you guys make when you have jackshit in the fridge?

 

 

some of my old standbys:

 

 

breakfast for dinner

(bacon, scrambled eggs w/whatever herbs or veggies i have, toast, hashbrowns)

 

 

rice & beans

(rice, whatever can of beans i have, an onion and/or pepper, cheese)

 

 

spaghetti carbonara

(spaghetti cooked al dente w/bacon and whisked w/an egg while hot)

 

 

lentil soup

(lentils, potatoes, veggies, bouillon cube)

 

 

tuna melts

(toast, tuna salad, avocado or tomato, melted cheese)

 

 

tacos

(corn tortillas, beans and/or meat, lettuce, onion, cheese, sour cream)

 

 

chili

(diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, canned chipotles en adobo, veggies/meat/beans)

 

 

how do you guys get down when you're broke/lazy/too tired to go to the store?

spaghetti is always go to but i like to have the shitty ramen dinners and make em better by cooking an egg in that shit and steaming some broccoli. always makes for a much better ramen experience.

yo this is how I live

zdrips got mad more ingrediants than me tho, the only veggie I got is a bell pepper

but i digress

 

a loaf of bread @ a carton of eggs will hold you down with fried egg sammiches, especially if you got some hot sauce

 

 

also egg&tuna salad sandwiches, soft boil the eggs and mix w/ tuna & mustard & hot sauce

 

 

and if you got one condiment in the crib it should be hot sauce... you can get a big ass bottle for like 1$

louisiana hot sauce fixes up any damn thing

I just ordered Chinese delivery, and because I didn't specify to them that I needed hot sauce, they of course didn't put any in the bag.

 

I figure whatever, I'll get some out of the fridge...then I open the fridge and realize I ran out like a week or so back, and that I have yet to get any more.

 

My fried chicken wings, rice, and eggroll were not the same without it :(

sorry but none of those would count as bare cupbaord recipes to me.

toast, tuna salad, avocado or tomato, melted cheese??corn tortillas, beans and/or meat, lettuce, onion, cheese, sour cream, eggs and bacon technically that's not an empty cupboard. or fridge. Rice and beans maybe.

 

don't you mean instant noodles with ketchup or something?

mustard off a spoon?

 

is that more what you're looking for?

 

Toast with garlic cloves rubbed on it. (topping free bruschetta)

fried bread with chopped mushrooms (greasy fungi pizza hold the cheese)

tinned Chick peas and tomatos with salt stolen from macca's.

couscous with butter and the rest of those tinned tomatoes.

 

thankfully I haven't had to get that gourmet in years

WAIT, I JUST REMEMBERED!

 

Bottle of garlic hot sauce in the cupboard that my ex left here. She loved it, and although it's definitely not my favorite hot sauce by far, it will make the rest of that Chinese much more enjoyable

yeah, lentils? mixed veggies? that shit is expensive...

 

 

try canned peas and carrots, pan fry them carrots with some butter and cinnamon if you got cinnamon... you should have some butter type shit off top... then put the peas in it after the carrots are all pan fried up... thats like a 75 cent side for your egg sandwich

dude...a big ass bag of lentils is like 2 dollars and will last months.

dal (another lentil dish) is another good cheapie but you have to have indian spices on hand.

lettuce, onions, jalapenos, etc., are mad cheap too.

parmesan is another one of those things that i always have so i forgot to list it.

 

i would order in but i don't get cell phone reception and since i haven't eaten much all day i feel that i lack the sustenance to get up off my ass and go outside to call it in.

 

SO LAZY.

lettuce isnt really all that cheap, but onions sure are fuck are, but they also make me fart all day... jalepenos barely count after they are all soaked... there more of a spice than an actual veg of sustinance

I made this last week, a Foreman grill quesadilla with American cheese and sour cream to dip it in...it tasted fucking horrible, and made my stomach hurt really bad.

 

I haven't gone grocery shopping in over 3 months, so all I do is eat out, which is usually fine, but makes for bad decisions like this when I wake up at 3 AM starving

I just made a stuffed pepper. Ground beef, some spices, in a skillet fer some minutes, then add some cooked rice, couple more minutes, stuffed it in a pepper, put the rest of the pilaf around it on top of some cabbage, threw some salt and paprika on it and baked it for thirty minutes. It was great
