Using up Supplies

This week I decided not to go grocery shopping and try to use up some of the ingredients I had in the kitchen.  Click here to see previous post.  This is a record of what I managed to create:


Sausage Casserole

What I used:

  • 1 Coleman Packet sauce
  • 6 sausage
  • 1 onion
  • 175 g mushrooms (looked slightly dodgy)
  • 4-6 potatoes for mash


Pasta with  5 minute Tomato Sauce (hubby loved the lemony zing of sauce)

What I used:

  • Virgin Olive Oil
  • Crushed Red Chili Pepper Flakes
  • Sea Salt
  • Garlic Powder as I didn’t have any garlic
  • Tinned chopped Tomatoes
  • Zest of one slightly squishy lemon
  • Penne Pasta
  • Bagged Salad that was 2 days past sell by date


Pork Chops in Mushroom Sauce, Rice and Carrots

What I used:

  • Vegetable Oil
  • 4 pork chops
  • 2 cans of Campbells’ Cream of Mushroom Soup (must have ingredient for all chefs)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Water
  • Milk
  • Carrots
  • Rice


Steak, Chips and Salad Gordon Ramsay Style (well kind of!)

What I used:

  • 2 Prime Rump Steaks
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
