Meals out of Practically Nothing

Half Full Jars

As you look in your refrigerator contemplating if there is anything good to eat think of what can be made out of half full jars.

Example

Say you have a half full jar of spaghetti sauce.  Instead of throwing it out make sloppy joes.

Add a tiny bit of water to the sauce to make thinner
Grate a couple of Garlic Cloves and add to the sauce
Add a little ketchup if you want
Add 1 teaspoon of sugar
Salt and Pepper
* You can even add your half full jar of salsa and eliminate the sugar

Scramble some hamburger and season to taste.  Pour the sauce over your hamburger and serve it on a hamburger bun.  Sloppy Joe dinner and there is no waste of food.

Jam Sauce

Add to a half jar of jam or jelly
1 Tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon of Almond Flavoring
Stir together in the jar and serve over some vanilla ice cream

Leftover Beef or Pork

Do you have half of a steak, roast or pork in your refrigerator?
Make a stir fry.  Just add your leftover meat to some leftover or frozen vegetables, spice it up with garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, tarragon or any other spice.  Place your stir fry over a bed of natural brown rice for a healthy meal.

Don't Waste

Use your imagination as to what you can combine in your refrigerator to make a whole meal.  This way you will never waste any food and your food budget will be smaller.  Remember, waste not want not.
