ready steady blog

Here's my dilemma: I can't get to the supermarket before suppertime so I need to figure out what to make out of the contents of my kitchen cupboards. Please help - think of this as an interactive online experience that will undoubtedly enrich your life, make you better looking, and possibly help you lose 5-10 lbs.

Fridge/freezer contents:
  • parmesan cheese
  • milk
  • various condiments (an assortment of mustards, mayonnaise, ketchup, and some suspicious-looking chutney that's probably out of date)
  • a few vegetables: carrots, celery, mushrooms, potatoes, a bit of salad, and cucumber.
  • some herbs: parsley, basil, mint, and coriander.
  • bread
  • peas
  • cooked prawns
  • tortillas
  • ice cubes
  • food for Jack stored in bags and little plastic tubs*
    *(I'll only break into these in case of emergency)

Cupboard contents:
  • more herbs and spices than you can shake a stick at
  • various oils and vinegars
  • rice (basmati, brown long grain, and arborio)
  • pasta
  • lentils
  • porcini mushrooms
  • lots of alcohol
  • tinned chickpeas
  • baked beans
  • eggs
  • one sad clove of garlic
  • sushi rice, pickled ginger, wasabi paste, and seaweed (nori)
  • miso soup
  • tinned stock
  • tuna
  • soba noodles
  • several varieties of flour and many other things to make baked goods
