I cooked a lot when I was a kid. I used to enjoy looking in the fridge to see what was there, and coming up with a recipe based on that.

For example... I've got some mushrooms that I need to use before the die, cherry tomatoes, half a butternut pumpkin, some fresh garlic, leek, and some ground beef. What can I make :whistling: .

This is a great game to play when your fridge is nearly empty... see what others come up with!!! It's also good to play when you know that some fresh food is coming to the end of it's life and needs to be eaten or tossed.

Haha, that is 'off the wall'!!! When I was pregnant I ate ... mashed potato, fish and chilli sandwiches. It was nice at the time. I tried it after I gave birth and thought it was disgusting :whistling: .

If you got some eggs, you can make an awesome italian vegi-mixed scrambled eggs called freitata.

Add the mushrooms, chopped cherry tomatoes, and finely chopped garlic to a fry pan with a dab of oil (not too much). When the ingredients are soft add the eggs and mix until it's scrambled egg ready. Enjoy!

Maybe someone else can come up with an idea of how to use the rest of the butternut pumpkin, leeks and beef. I've never used leeks before so I couldn't recommend anything. But if it's tasteless like cabbage you can make an awesome chunky (referring to diced pumpkin) beef stew with the rest of what you have!

When you put the peanut butter, pickles and chips between two slices of bread, just smash them. Believe it or not it is real good and crunchy. I started making these when I was kid, can you tell? :whistling:

hmm.. I don't know how empty you mean. My fridge is just about cleared out, I don't think I can make anything out of jello, peanut butter and fish.

I cooked a lot when I was a kid. I used to enjoy looking in the fridge to see what was there, and coming up with a recipe based on that.

For example... I've got some mushrooms that I need to use before the die, cherry tomatoes, half a butternut pumpkin, some fresh garlic, leek, and some ground beef. What can I make :noidea: .

This is a great game to play when your fridge is nearly empty... see what others come up with!!! It's also good to play when you know that some fresh food is coming to the end of it's life and needs to be eaten or tossed.



Cook the beef with the leeks, garlic and the chopped tomtoes add the cooked mushrooms at the end of the cooking time .....

1. use with a pastry top as a pie


2. use as the base for cottage pie by mashing potato (try adding the pumpkin to make it more interesting :emot-questioned: ) and placing on top of the meat then sprinkle with grated cheese ( works without it if you dont have any ) and return to the oven till the top is nice a crispy brown ( not burned wyguy )

3. make an omlette and fill it with the ingredients ( very tasty and serves lots of people as it is filling )

4. buy some taco shells and fill them adding cheese on top

5. do as above buy use the tomatoes as a base for a pizza and top with the other ingredients either cooked together or seperatly

6 Burn the lot and get hubby to take you out for dinner or order a take away :emot-questioned: :24: :whistling:

Well lets see...

Get a long piece of string
Tie all the veggie stuff to it
Place in the bottom of your garden
Wait for a kangaroo to stop by
Slowly pull on the string
When the roo is close enough bash it over the head
Cook the roo with the ground beef
If it did not manage to get to the veggies, wash them and add to the dish

Well thats what I would do...... :whistling:

Now easy on the Raccoons, they don't taste that bad and the squirrels are good with pot pie or just barbecued on an open fire.

I think this thread has very rapidly changed from 'All I've got in my fridge' to 'Who the heck would eat that'?
